New York Times Publisher A.G. Sulzberger responded to President Trump's persistent attacks on the press, calling the phrase "enemy of the people," "dangerous" and that such attacks endanger journalists abroad.

"In demonizing the free press as the enemy for performing its role of asking questions and bringing  information to light, President Trump is retreating from a distinctly American principle. ... The phrase 'enemy of the people' is not just false, it’s dangerous. It has an ugly history of being wielded by dictators and tyrants who sought to control public information."

Trump singled out a NYT-reported story about him Wednesday, calling it false. The story was that Trump called acting AG Matthew Whitaker to ask whether a Trump-appointed attorney could "unrecuse" himself to lead the Southern District of NY's investigation into hush money payments during the 2016  election.
