CNN’s Jim Acosta asked multiple times if Sarah Sanders had the “guts” to call news outlets and journalists “the enemy of the people” Monday during the White House press briefing.
The question comes after Trump tweeted Monday morning calling “The Fake News Media” the true “Enemy of the People.”
There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!
In response to the comment from the president, Acosta asked, “Shouldn’t you reserve the term ‘enemy for people’ for those who are actually the enemy of the United States rather than journalists?”
Sanders said bluntly, “The president is not referencing all media. He’s talking about the growing amount of fake news that exists in the country. The president’s calling that out.”
