“A month after taking office, defending himself from news reports that his aides had repeated contacts with Russian intelligence during the campaign, President Trump called out the media on Twitter using a phrase that surprised even members of the media who had grown accustomed to regular attacks.
“The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @CNN, @NBCNews and many more) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people. SICK!” the president posted on Twitter. He soon deleted the tweet and posted a revised message that called out ABC and CBS as well.
The invocation spawned a flurry of articles on the history of the use of “enemy of the people,” which may have been used against the Roman emperor Nero to denounce his rule. The phrase was adopted in Nazi Germany — “If someone wears the Jewish star, he is an enemy of the people,” Hitler’s propaganda minister wrote — and, perhaps most famously, in the Soviet Union under Stalin, when being labeled an enemy of the people amounted to a death sentence.”
