Chris Wallace Confronts Trump On Calling Media ‘Enemy of the People’ | Fortune
Fox News host Chris Wallace confronted President Donald Trump about his anti-media rhetoric in an interview that aired Sunday, stating that the president is globally seen as a “beacon for repression.”
“Leaders in authoritarian countries like Russia, China, Venezuela, now repress the media using your words,” said Wallace.
“I can’t talk for other people, I can only talk for me,” Trump responded.
Wallace tried to address Trump’s overall demonization of the media in the Fox News Sunday interview, pointing out that a retired Navy Seal involved with the killing of Osama bin Laden once criticized the president’s rhetoric as possibly “the greatest threat to democracy” in his lifetime.
