Trump Gets Blasted for Attacking the Press as America’s ‘Biggest Enemy’ – After Embracing a Dictator

 
 

'Great Dealmakers Do Not Celebrate Deals' Trump Once Said

Angry that the mainstream media and many independent news outlets are ripping to shreds his "deal" with North Korea, President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to attack his critics.

That's what dictators do.
