attacking the free press
We don't yet know what drove the attack on a Maryland newsroom. We do know the President of the United States has spent the bulk of his presidency attacking the free press as the enemy of people. Suddenly he doesn't want to talk about it.

Trump says the press, not Russia, is the 'real enemy of the people'
President Trump on Thursday blamed "the real enemy of the people, the fake news media" for portraying his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin as a failure. He insisted that the meeting, which was met with alarm by Republicans, Democrats, and national security experts, was a "great success," and additionally said that he looked forward to a "second meeting" to move forward on "stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation," and more. Intelligence officials have condemned Trump's apparent defense of Putin regarding Russia's interference in U.S. election systems. In a second tweet, Trump baselessly claimed that most media ignored his acknowledgement of Russian meddling out of a desire to "see a major confrontation with Russia."
