In a Twitter post published on Sunday, displaying trademark braggadocio, President Donald Trump argued that his administration had "accomplished more than any other" in U.S. history, while slamming the "fake news" media.
"The Trump Administration has accomplished more than any other U.S. Administration in its first two (not even) years of existence, & we are having a great time doing it! All of this despite the Fake News Media, which has gone totally out of its mind -- truly the Enemy of the People!"
Now, the president is apparently doubling down on the claim, arguing that his administration has managed to accomplish -- not more than "almost any" administration in United States history -- but "more than any" other administration ever. Clearly, Donald Trump couldn't resist taking a jab at the "fake news" media, dubbing the press "the enemy of the people" once again.
For Donald Trump, who has been accused of waging a war on the press, to viciously attack and criticize the media is nothing new. The president has done so on many occasions over the past two years. The Guardian observed that Trump's attacks on the media are setting the stage for violence against journalists in the United States and worldwide.
