On Sunday, President Donald J. Trump lashed out at the “fake news media,” calling them the “enemy of the people” and saying they could “cause war.” In the tweet, he said fake journalism “purposely” caused “division and distrust” in the country.

Trump Tweeted: The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it’s TRUE. I am providing a great service by explaining this to the American People. They purposely cause great division & distrust. They can also cause War! They are very dangerous & sick!

The president went on to tweet about tariffs, writing that implementing tariffs on other countries is “working” and that other countries “want to take wealth out of the U.S.” He also indicated that with his new policies, the U.S. will be able to start paying down the $21-trillion debt it owes, then slammed the Obama administration for having accumulated “much” of it.

Trump tweeted (combined): Tariffs are working big time. Every country on earth wants to take wealth out of the U.S., always to our detriment. I say, as they come, Tax them. If they don’t want to be taxed, let them make or build the product in the U.S. In either event, it means jobs and great wealth. Because of Tariffs we will be able to start paying down large amounts of the $21 Trillion in debt that has been accumulated, much by the Obama Administration, while at the same time reducing taxes for our people. At minimum, we will make much better Trade Deals for our country!
