White House Repeatedly Refuses To Say Journos Aren't 'Enemy Of The People'

Sanders added that as far as she knows, she is "the first press secretary" in US history that has "required Secret Service protection".

Thursday was the second day in a row Sanders has lambasted the media.

"You want a guy who sounds like Atticus Finch", Meyers said.

That language is generally described as officialese for saying work is on but no dates yet, according to former White House staffers who spoke only on background to explain how presidential visits are arranged. "It is the FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the media, that is the enemy of the people!" he wrote. But he told Sanders that "the president of the United States should not refer to us as the enemy of the American people".

You did not say in the course of your remarks you just made that the press is not the enemy of the people.

In a lengthy, stormy exchange, Mrs. Sanders said journalists are complaining about the president calling them "the enemy of the people", but they won't accept responsibility for leveling attacks against administration officials and the president. Sarah Sanders was repeatedly given a chance to say the press is not the enemy and she wouldn't do it.

Homebuyers’ pain as Bank nudges loan rate up to 0.75%
One of them (a private sector bank) is mired in a huge controversy relating to governance and conflict of interest. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday announced a 25 basis points hike in repo rate to 6.5 per cent.

The old quote came to the fore again after Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the president, said earlier on Thursday that the press was "not the enemy", as well as insisting she was against controversial family separations for illegal migrants.

She also recalled comedienne Michelle Wolf's stand-up act at this year's White House Correspondents Association dinner, a vicious take-down that included a jab at her looks and an insulting characterization of her as 'a traitor to my own gender'.

"It would be nice if we all lowered the temperature a little bit", Acosta said. "But no, I do not feel that the media is the enemy of the people", Ivanka Trump said. I wish that had not happened.

The move marks the latest step in the increasingly conflictual relationship between Mr Trump and the cable news network.

"I'm here to speak on behalf of the president", she said. The free press needs to be protected as well as their opinions. He made it particularly easy for Sanders to say what had been clear to the country in less authoritarian times.

While advocating that Americans be required to show photo ID when they vote, Trump said that even when you buy groceries, "you need a picture on a card - you need ID".
