President Donald Trump seemingly attempted to close the gap between him and his daughter on Thursday, after administration staffer Ivanka Trump said that she didn’t consider news media to be a so-called “enemy of the people.”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made no such distinction earlier Thursday, criticizing the press while refusing to say journalists weren’t a public enemy.

And besides, the distinction between “news” and “fake news” is somewhat meaningless, coming from Trump. In the past he’s admitted that the “fake” label applies to those outlets whose coverage he simply doesn’t like.
