Trump lashes out against US news outlets defending press freedom | US news | The Guardian

Donald Trump has lashed out against hundreds of US newspapers that published editorials on Thursday defending press freedom and denouncing his constant attacks on the media.

Tweeting in all capitals, the president wrote: “THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA IS THE OPPOSITION PARTY. It is very bad for our Great Country.” He added: “BUT WE ARE WINNING!”
More than 350 newspapers across America, large and small, responded to Trump’s relentless attacks on much of the mainstream media as “fake news” and the “enemy of the people”.

The US Senate unanimously adopted a resolution on Thursday affirming support for a free press and declaring that “the press is not the enemy of the people”.

The non-binding resolution approved by voice vote was a rebuke to Trump who for more than 18 months has frequently called reporters “the enemy of the people”.
