President Trump on Wednesday declared that the nation’s “biggest enemy is the Fake News,” particularly NBC and CNN for their coverage of the North Korea summit.

“So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN,” Trump tweeted.

“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. Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!”

Tuesday’s summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim Jong Un was the first ever meeting of a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader.

During the meeting, Trump and Kim signed an agreement on denuclearization, with details to be worked out in subsequent negotiations. On Tuesday, Kim reportedly accepted Trump’s invitation to visit Washington, D.C.

CNN and NBC have long been Trump targets for attacks on the media along with The New York Times and The Washington Post. His tweet on Tuesday echoed a comment made last year, in which he called the news media “the enemy of the American people.”
