Donald Trump, same as many other dictators who preceded him, wages a constant, relentless war against the news media. There is indeed a "true enemy of the people" in the United States but it is not the news media. The enemy of the people sits in the Oval Office.

Trump calls New York Times 'a true enemy of the people'
HuffPost US, Feb 20 2019 11:32 AM

President Donald Trump today morning targeted the New York Times, singling out the newspaper as "a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE." Trump regularly attacks the "fake news media" in general with his vitriolic tweets and speeches but rarely targets one publication or outlet in particular. His post is widely reported to be a response to a Times article published Tuesday, which detailed his alleged "two-year war on the investigations encircling him."

In an earlier tweet, Trump claimed journalists "don’t even call asking for verification" about stories they are planning to publish about his administration ― a post which is also being interpreted as an attack on Times reporters.

Donald J. Trump
The Press has never been more dishonest than it is today. Stories are written that have absolutely no basis in fact. The writers don’t even call asking for verification. They are totally out of control. Sadly, I kept many of them in business. In six years, they all go BUST!

Times reporter Maggie Haberman dismissed the claim during an interview with CNN’s New Day, noting how she’d sent several emails to the White House about the planned story "that went unanswered until yesterday." She added, "We went through a detailed list of what we were planning on reporting. They chose not to engage and then afterwards the President acts surprised."
