Trump Leading ‘Hate Movement’ Against MSM — CNN’s Brian Stelter

Trump Leading ‘Hate Movement’ Against MSM — CNN’s Brian Stelter

If he accepts, he will be the second USA president to do so - his predecessor Barack Obama was the first to attend the Republic Day parade.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci slammed the myriad Trump supporters who heckled CNN's Jim Acosta during a Tuesday night rally in Tampa, Florida.

'Never in my wildest dreams would I think that I would be called an enemy of the people, or a press secretary would never take those words back, because we ask questions!' she said. I don't always agree and am often upset with journalists but we are flashing warning lights now that we shouldn't be flashing.

Veteran journalist Dan Rather says U.S. President Donald Trump "will be personally accountable" should any violence erupt against the media in the wake of the president's attack on "fake news".

Acosta responded to Eric Trump in a followup tweet that said, "No Eric".

"But you did not say that the press is not the enemy of the people", Acosta said. "ICE officials are not welcomed in their place of worship", Sanders said.

When I was hosted by the Correspondents' Association - of which nearly all of you are members of - you brought up a comedian up to attack my appearance and call me a traitor to my own gender.

She lamented that she was the first press secretary in history to have received secret service protection, but didn't acknowledge the reporters who have also had to have security after the president attacked them.

Instead, Sanders recited a litany of complaints against the press and blamed the media for inflaming tensions in the country.

"You did not say in the course of those remarks that you just made that the press is not the enemy of the people", he said.

Trump made waves in February 2017 with the "enemy" tweet. "I share it. I've address this question".

Acosta referenced an earlier question from NPR reporter Sarah McCammon, who asked Sanders if the press was the "enemy of the people" or not. I've addressed my personal feelings, I'm here to speak on behalf of the president. "He's made his comments clear".

At a rally in Florida on Tuesday, Trump attempted to bolster his administration's push for tougher voter I.D. laws, telling the crowd, "if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need I.D".

Before delving deep into his monologue, the Fox News host reiterated that "violence against any member of the press" is "reprehensible" and that "no real conservative" would ever support violence committed against the media, adding that he'd be the "first person to jump in" and that he trains five days a week doing MMA.
