In the course of the interview, Trump was asked whether he worries that after calling press the “enemy of the people,” some of his devoted supporters could resort to acts of violence against the journalists.

Donald replied in his defense:

It’s my only form of fighting back.

Who is right?

Of course, the President makes his point. Who would enjoy reading false information about themselves and members of their family?

A recent reminder is an iconic story with Melania’s ‘I Don’t Care’ jacket, which generated a wave of negative comments in social media. At that time, Trump also stood in his wife’s defense and accused the “Fake News Media” of misrepresenting the facts.

So, who is right in this situation – Trump, who calls journalists “the enemy of the people” or mass media that posts gossips about Mr. President? We look forward to reading your comments.
