Fox News anchor Chris Wallace told President Trump that he is viewed as a "beacon for repression around the world" because of his repeated attacks against the press.

Wallace made the statement to Trump while conducting a sit-down interview with the president that was aired on Sunday. In it, Wallace pressed Trump about his rhetoric in regard to the media, noting that most presidents haven't like the coverage of their administrations.

"No president has liked his press coverage ... Nobody called it the enemy of the American people," Wallace said.
Mr. Wallace, on the money
Like Father like Son
Now cue the Trump supporters.
How many posts before we see Chris Wallace is a closet Democrat? He is, but has voted for both Parties
He moderated 3 Republican debates

No other President has been attacked...mostly falsly...by the press.

If the media doesn't like being called out by Trump, they are welcome to become professional journalists again.

I just love how the Trump haters conveniently forget how not transparent Obama was and how he weaponized his DOJ to attack journalists and their sources. Not to mention saying just as bad things about FOX and freezing them out. Obama's WH loathed FOX.

The problem is that President Trump is thin skinned. Here is an idea:Stop demonizing all who disagree with you.

This isn't criticism. That would involve being critical and objective. What your post involves in pure emotion.
Trump has been transparent and more accessible than Obama and oh yeah...he hasn't spied on Jim Acosta or any other journalist who grandstands on the regular.

Well you are critical of any criticism of Trump, but you are never objective.

Goes to show that FOX at least attempts fair and balanced. Much of FOX is left of Wallace and the rest for the most part are full blown never Trump establishment.

Ha, nice pretzel logic. Again, what you are whining about isn't criticism. That would require a little bit of work.

Seems fair, since any comment that argues he's not the devil makes one a "Trump supporter"

You are right. How dare the press ridicule this president by quoting his words verbatim.

Today's quote: “So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate,”

The constitution requires that the president attain the age of 35. It says nothing about him acting like a 7 year old. Those who defend him are enablers.
