Trump Identifies ‘Our Country’s Biggest Enemy’

Jun 13, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Donald Trump followed up on his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by taking a shot today at the media, which he continues to call “Fake News.” He sent out a message on Twitter calling the Fake News “Our Country’s biggest enemy.”

Here’s his message: “So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. 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!”

“The president’s tweet, delivered a few hours after Air Force One touched down outside Washington, was reminiscent of his February 2017 Twitter rebuke in which he called several leading news outlets ‘the enemy of the American people,'” the AP reports. “Trump has sought to portray his unprecedented meeting with Kim as a significant accomplishment that has made the world less vulnerable to the North’s nuclear arsenal. Critics say that his agreement with the North lacks specific restraints on Kim’s government and that he offered to end joint military exercises with South Korea with little in return.”

The AP also notes: “The tweet followed a New York Times story on the Trump administration’s lack of scientific expertise, the president’s questioning of the honesty of the American media at an international summit in Canada and his dismissal of diplomatic expertise in favor of using a ‘touch’ and ‘feel’ approach in his talks with Kim.”

Earlier, Trump tweeted: “Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!”


  1. Go suck eggs Twitler.

  2. “…everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office” sounds vaguely reminiscent of “peace in our time”.

  3. Calling the free press “Our Country’s biggest enemy” is the pronouncements of a dictator in the making. We need to stand up to this bully and potential oligarch to let him know that our freedoms are not something that we will give up without a bloody fight. His propaganda against truth and justice will only get worse unless the people of this country declare that enough is enough and send Trump and his fascist-loving followers back to the swamp in which they crawled.
