Trump: We Are Fighting the Fake and Phony News; Fake News Is the Enemy of the People

‘A few days ago, I called the fake news the enemy of the people and they are, they are the enemy of the people’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "A few days ago, I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are. They are the enemy of the people. They have no sources, they just make them up when there are none. I saw one story recently where they said nine people have confirmed. There are no nine people, I don’t believe there were one or two people. Nine people! And I said, 'Give me a break, I know the people, I know who they talk to. There were no nine people.' But they say nine people and somebody reads it and thinks, 'Oh,  nine people, they have nine sources.' They make up sources. They are very dishonest people. In fact, in covering my comments, the dishonest media did not explain that I called the fake news the enemy of the people, the fake news. They dropped off the word 'fake,' and all of a sudden the story became the media is the enemy. They take the word 'fake' out and now I’m saying, 'Oh, no, this is no good.' But that is the way they are."
