Believes Trump that media is ‘enemy of the people’

Dear Editor,

I am getting very tired of your news organization comparing President Trump to despots of the past. e.g. Stalin killed 50 million of his own people. Mao: 100 million. Hitler: 30 million in the war and 6 million Jews. Castro: anyone who spoke out against him. Nixon: name one who he had killed. Putin poisons his opponents and probably killed thousands. Kim: Thousands, especially his family members. Trump: Name just one. We don’t kill our opposition in this country.

The news media is an enemy of the people by trying to separate us into two political camps by printing the vitriol present in today’s paper. By joining the bandwagon to conspire against the president, all you did was prove his point. The media tends to speak with one voice.

When the last president was shutting down Tea Party members, tapping the phones and computers of “unfriendly” journalists, and calling people who watched Fox News ignorant; where were you?
