Fresh off his effusive praise of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, President Donald Trump has now declared that America's true No. 1 enemy is its free press.
"So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN," the president wrote. "They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have 'begged' for this deal-looked like war would break out. Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!"

Trump's declaration that the media is America's "enemy" came just hours after Trump claimed that North Korea was negotiating in "good faith" with the United States over denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.
"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea," Trump wrote. "Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!"
This is not the first time Trump has declared the news media an "enemy" of the United States, as last year he said that networks that covered him critically were an "enemy of the people."
