During an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Monday evening, President Donald Trump dodged Ingraham’s questions about his penchant for labeling the media the “enemy of the people,” by suggesting the name-calling is his “form of telling the truth.”

“It’s a very good question. … It’s my form of telling the truth,” he said. “Here’s my problem. We have a lot of supporters. You know that better than anybody, all you have to do is look at your ratings, OK? But you know it better than anybody. Those supporters know that they’re lying. I watched ‘Meet the Press’ this weekend. Everything was so falsely put. Putting words in people’s mouths.”
