President Trump’s biggest opponent heading into 2020 is not the Democrats. Trump claims that his campaigns biggest opponent is the fake news media.
According to The Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump suggested Monday morning that his campaign’s biggest concern is not Democrats but rather the “Fake News Media.”
“The LameStream Media has gone totally CRAZY! They write whatever they want, seldom have sources (even though they say they do), never do ‘fact checking’ anymore, and are only looking for the ‘kill.’ They take good news and make it bad. They are now beyond Fake, they are Corrupt..” he told his Twitter followers.
….The good news is that we are winning. Our real opponent is not the Democrats, or the dwindling number of Republicans that lost their way and got left behind, our primary opponent is the Fake News Media. In the history of our Country, they have never been so bad!

Trump added in a follow-up tweet: “….The good news is that we are winning. Our real opponent is not the Democrats, or the dwindling number of Republicans that lost their way and got left behind, our primary opponent is the Fake News Media.”
The president did not cite any specific media outlet, but a report in Axios Saturday suggested the Trump campaign is intent on making Big Tech’s supposed conservative bias a focal part of Trump’s 2020 reelection bid. The report cited an anonymous source inside the administration and included quotes from the official.
President Trump has even begun to focus attacks on Fox News for what he calls unfair reporting of his administration.
