Donald Trump attacked the media in yet another Twitter rant on Friday, this time calling “fake news” the “enemy of the American people.”
The president called out several media outlets which have been critical of him in the past, labeling the New York Times, NBC News, ABC, CBS, and CNN as “fake news.”

Trump has long used Twitter as a means of attacking and discrediting his enemies.
According to USA Today, the president “deleted an earlier version” of the tweet, updating it to add ABC and CBS to his list of fake news outlets. He also dropped the word “SICK!” from the ending of the revised tweet.
