President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday afternoon to declare various mainstream news organizations--The New York Times, ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC--are in fact the "FAKE NEWS media and are the enemy of the American people.
Trump's tweet was actually a revised version of another, since-deleted, tweet that did not include CBS and ABC.
The president just tweeted -- and then deleted -- this: pic.twitter.com/dPLI6QduP9— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) February 17, 2017
Chuck Todd responded to Trump's tweet, saying that he thinks the president should "dial it back."
I would hope that our leaders would never believe that any American desires to make another American an enemy. Let's dial it back.— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) February 17, 2017
