Trump calls the media ‘our country’s biggest enemy’ after falsely declaring North Korea is not a threat

Published

on

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.”

HBO’s ‘Real Time’ panel provides roadmap for Democrats to get DNI’s Ukraine report and speed-up impeachment

Responding to a question over whether the state of New York will indict the president, the conversation turned to prosecutors seeking Trump's taxes.

According to presidential historian Tim Naftali, there is precedent allowing the acquisition.

"Is it really that hard to get somebody's frigging, f*cking taxes? " host Bill Maher asked.

"Actually, there is a precedent," Naftali explained. "If the House started on the impeachment hearings, they could act on the precedent of 1974, where Nixon's taxes were turned over to the impeachment committee. So there is a precedent, but they have to make the decision that they are having an impeachment inquiry."

Trump slams ‘partisan’ whistleblower, Biden pushes back

Published

on

US President Donald Trump on Friday vigorously rejected a whistleblower's claim of wrongdoing, amid reports he used a call with Ukraine's president to pressure him to investigate the son of Trump's Democratic rival Joe Biden.

The whistleblower's secret complaint has triggered a tense showdown between Congress, whose Democratic leaders are demanding to review the complaint, and the executive branch which has barred them from doing so.

It has also raised concerns Trump sought to strong-arm Ukraine into providing damaging information on the president's possible 2020 challenger, which would represent dangerous foreign meddling in the US election -- similar to the interference blamed on Russia in 2016, when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

And Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, in a USA Today op-ed published on Friday, argued that Kavanaugh wasn’t adequately vetted as he should have been.
