Sujit Choudhry on How President Trump is at War with America’s Press

In a recent article by Sujit Choudhry, it’s factual that President Donald Trump has been at war with the press. From the fake news by CNN to failing New York Times, his recent actions confirm that the media has always been cast as the enemy of the people. Nonetheless, President Trump isn’t the only head of state that has voiced objections against the press. Other presidents such as Lyndon Johnson, Bill Clinton, along with Richard Nixon come to mind.

However, Trump’s supporters have taken one step forward and reiterated that the President should be in a position to shut down media. It also needs to be noted that President Donald Trump hasn’t instructed the relevant authority to shut down the media. In a recent poll, it was established that Republicans want President Trump to have the power to shut down the media. Also, 43 percent aspire for President Trump to close down specific outlets.

43 percent of candidates identified as Republicans. They stated that President Trump needs to have the authority to shut down unscrupulous media outlets engaged in terrible behavior. Approximately 36 percent disagreed with this opinion. When asked if Trump should throw CNN, The New York Times, in addition to The Washington Post out, 49 percent agreed.

A few Democrats, as well as Independents, expressed their support for closing down print media. This is to a lesser degree. Regarding the fact that President Trump should have the power to shut down media that engage in bad behavior, 74 percent of Democrats said no.
