CNN host Chris Cuomo on Thursday said President Trump’s tweet slamming the “fake news media” is proof that he hates America and everything it stands for.

“This is ugly and it is unoriginal,” Mr. Cuomo declared on “Cuomo Prime Time.” “But most importantly, it is an admission that you hate your country.”

He was referring to the “America First” president’s tweet Thursday labeling the “fake news media” the “real enemy of the people.”



Mr. Cuomo argued that the phrase, “enemy of the people,” was used by numerous notorious dictators as an “operative threat to murder opposition.”

“America, the country you lead, was formed in defiance of strongmen, bullies, and the idea that might makes right,” Mr. Cuomo said. “A free press is a metaphor for what makes America great, so you have now admitted that you are against what we are all about.

He concluded, “Do you really think the people will keep a president who hates what their country is all about?”
