     The fight is clear - Americans trust Trump more than they trust the liberal press. CNN media reporter Brian Stelter said President Trump’s attacks on the media show that he wants to run against the press in November's midterm elections. The "Reliable Sources" host foolishly said on BBC’s "Newsnight" on Friday that while most Americans know the press is not the “enemy of the people,” the president is using the phrase as a “rhetorical device.”

     The president has stepped up his attacks on the press of late: Trump tweeted on Thursday that “the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!" White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday also refused to say that the media is not the "enemy of the people," after being pressed to do so by CNN’s Jim Acosta during a heated exchange at the day's press briefing.

     Acosta walked out of the briefing early after Sanders refused to defend the press.  Acosta is a liberal anti Trump hack.
