Chicago Tribune: “President Donald Trump‘s use of the terms ‘fake news’ and ‘enemy of the people’ is ‘shameful’ and reminiscent of words infamously used by Russian dictator Josef Stalin to describe his enemies, Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said Wednesday.”

“In a speech on the Senate floor, Flake, of Arizona, called Trump’s repeated attacks on the media ‘repulsive’ and said Trump ‘has it precisely backward.’ Despotism is the enemy of the people, while a free press is the despot’s enemy and a guardian of democracy, Flake said”
