In context, Trump is using “foe” like competitor. On trade, he’s not really wrong.

As for the news media, they’re the enemy of the truth. They’re shoving bias down the throats of their viewers, who can’t get enough of the junk being peddled.
Roy, you're right.  You never see a CNN story critical of a Democrat pol - on policy.  Only negative stories are when someone like Al Franken does something stupid that torpedo's his political career. Same for Fox - nothing critical of Republicans on any issue - unless they're opposing Trump. The Washington Post has become a PR firm for the far left. As as the NY Times in a lot of ways. 

What Trump is trying to do bashing the media at every opportunity IS alarming - but at the same time these idiots running these news organizations deserve it. They are failing at their mission - and helping to divide the country.

What are you talking about? Have you ever read the Post? They (1) report what GOP politicians have to say, which is mostly critical of D politicians; (2) publish a number of Republican opinion writers - some of whom are now critical of Trump but who reliably bashed Democrats for many years and continue to do so; (3) have published dozens of sympathetic stories interviewing Trump supporters trying to have them explain, in their own words, why they voted for Trump. these stories bend over so far trying to be fair it’s become a joke. Also(4) they love, love, love to write stories about “Democrats in disarray”.

The Post has a lot of R writers for a paper located in a very liberal region: Will, Kagan, Boot, McArdle, Samuelson, Theissen, Parker, Gerson. That many of them have turned against Trump says a lot more about Trump than the Post. The Post keeps finding more conservatives - On Kavanaugh’s nomination they published Ken Starr, David French, and a weird mash note from one of his neighbors saying what a kind, thoughtful man he is.

The EU is and was a terrible idea (for the people) from the start. A few countries figured it out--England (Brexit)..Hungary, Poland...and now Italy. It is run by the George Soros type Globalists/Bankers and their hand picked politicians.

Trump is correct--and he's not talking about European people. Of course, the Media is owned by these same type of people who run the EU, so all we get is their spin.

Well said, TP.

The news is so biased nowadays that it is hard to find good news.  The only folks that like it are the ones in the echo chambers.

"George Soros type globalist bankers who also control the media and the governments of Europe" seems like such a clunky term for such a powerful, nefarious group of people. Has anyone ever come up with a shorter, more convenient label?

You make it sound awful with this phrasing.

Although I don't agree with what the previous commenter wrote, esp. the Soros part, there is something to be said about reduced national sovereignty in the EU.

Oh, the wingnuts have, but publicly saying "It's the Jews" just seems so gauche. ::)
