"Fake news media is the enemy of the people" - Trump US President Donald Trump has once again taken to Twitter to air his grievances with US news outlets, claiming that "fake news" - which constitutes "a large percentage of the media" - is "the enemy of the people".

In a flurry of tweets Sunday morning, the president continued to cast the media as the "enemy of the people", saying "They purposely cause great division & distrust". She correctly said no.

"Face the Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan suggested that the president's assertion that the press is the "enemy of the people" and that journalists have caused "wars" may put journalists at risk.

"I know he (Trump) believes it's not all (journalists)", Conway said.

"I don't believe journalists are the enemy of the people", Conway said.

Woods had a day to forget. "I felt like even the first two rounds I played OK, but I struggled on the greens a little bit", Johnson said.

Trump's daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump, however, doesn't share the president's stance, saying last week that she does not think the media is the "enemy of the people".

"I think that most of the sins are sins of omission, not commission", Conway said, criticizing the lack of news coverage of such events like Vice President Mike Pence's receiving of war remains from North Korea.

When Brennan asked about the possible danger facing journalists after Trump's escalating comments against the press, Conway pointed her disapproval to an increasingly fierce media atmosphere, saying "the temperature needs to be dialed down overall".

That came amid heightened tensions between the Trump administration and United States media, some which have been labeled by him as "the Fake News", a move heavily criticized by journalists. "I think this kind of adversarial relationship is typical". "That's why he said it refers to those who aren't always telling the truth, who are giving emotion over information". "I have better everything than they have, including this", Trump said, pointing to his head.
