President Donald Trump on Wednesday declared the New York Times to be “the true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE” after its blockbuster report on Trump’s attempt to meddle in the Michael Cohen probe.

According to the Times, Trump had called acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to get a pro-Trump prosecutor to lead the investigation into Cohen, the President’s former fixer.
On Tuesday, Trump told journalists that the report was “more fake news.”
“I don’t know who gave you that,” he said.
