Trump Criticized for Media Attacks

  • The US President Donald Trump has lately drawn wide condemnation for his remarks on media. He labels the journalists as "enemies of the people" and has repeatedly condemned the media. This has been raised as a concern by the UN experts who believe Trumps' media attacks can compromise journalists' security and there could be an increase in violence against them. Edison Lanza and David Kaye of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights have termed the attacks strategic and meant to undermine the freedom of the press. His daughter Ivanka Trump didn't align herself with her father's comment either. Later on, this prompted a tweet from Trump which reads, “They asked my daughter Ivanka whether or not the media is the enemy of the people. She correctly said no. It is the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!”
