President Donald Trump is not happy about the way his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is being covered by the media and on Tuesday said “Fake News” is America’s “biggest enemy.”
“So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN. They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have ‘begged’ for this deal-looked like war would break out,” Trump tweeted.
“Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!”
Trump’s came after earlier tweets in which he made the dubious claim that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat, AOL observed.
Trump met with Kim on Tuesday in Singapore, where the two leaders signed a vaguely worded agreement that has been criticized by members of both political parties
In an interview following the summit, Trump simply said that he trusts Kim to live up to his end of the bargain. But North Korea has signed similar agreements in the past and ultimately reneged on various promises.
Critics also feel Trump has legitimized Kim by meeting with him and being highly complimentary in the process. Trump described Kim, the leader of a repressive regime that’s been compared to the Nazis by the UN, as a “talented man” who loves his people. Trump praised Kim as someone “very open,” “very honorable,” “very smart,” “very worthy” and “very talented” who “wants to do the right thing.”
