The fake news media is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people, trump wrote in his tweet.
A day earlier, in a solo news conference, he sparred with journalists and accused them of creating ‘fake news’.
He dismissed a growing controversy about ties between his aides and Russia as a “ruse” and a “scam” perpetrated by a hostile news media.

Trump has repeatedly described media criticism of him as “fake news” since taking office last month, labeling the media as the opposition party.
