Twitter Rips Trump for Reprising ‘Enemy of the People’ Attacks on Media: ‘Shame on Him’


Since the mail bombs were sent to prominent Democrats and CNN last week, President Donald Trump has made repeated calls for civility. But those very calls have been bookended by repeated attacks on the media at his rallies and in his tweets.

That all culminated in a tweet today in which Trump reprised his highly controversial “enemy of the people” attack on the media today.

Just to reiterate, in his call for civility the president also called news networks he doesn’t like the “enemy of the people.”

And Twitter criticized him for trotting this out again:
