Today White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to walk back the president’s assertion that reporters are “the enemy of the people.” While President Trump tweeted on 7.19 that “the real enemy of the people [is] the Fake News Media,” his daughter Ivanka said earlier today that she does “not” believe that the media deserves that label. Sanders ignored that statement when questioned by CNN’s Jim Acosta, and stood by the President’s statement. After the Sanders exchange Acosta tweeted that he was “totally saddened by what just happened.” He called Sanders’ refusal to reject the characterization of the press as an enemy as “shameful.”
