Trump tweets that media is to blame for political hostility

President Trump continued to attack the media as "the true Enemy of the People" in a Monday morning tweet, blaming "Fake News" for the "great anger in our [c]ountry," just days after a horrific 72-hour stretch of political violence tore across the nation.

"There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!"
— Trump
