As China blocks U.S. media, Trump denounces the same companies on Twitter

The news out of China over the weekend was bleak: Two more major international media companies — the London-based Guardian and The Washington Post — were added to the nation’s “Great Firewall,” blocked on the Internet to the country’s 1.4 billion citizens as part of a crackdown on dissent by President Xi Jinping.

The ongoing fade-out of public information coincided with the 30th anniversary this month of the bloodshed of the Tiananmen Square protests, a free-speech demonstration that the Communist Party crushed with military force as the world watched in horror.

Meanwhile, in Washington, President Trump had a message: The Post, CNN and NBC were, he wrote on Twitter, “Fake and Corrupt News Media.” The New York Times and CNN are “truly The Enemy of the People!” MSNBC, which he called “the opposition,” was broadcasting “such lies, almost everything they were saying was the opposite of the truth.”

“I know it is not at all ‘Presidential’ to hit back at the Corrupt Media, or people who work for the Corrupt Media, when they make false statements about me or the Trump Administration,” Trump declared in another tweet. “Problem is, if you don’t hit back, people believe the Fake News is true. So we’ll hit back!”

1. I may take issue with our government at times but I thank the gods

That there is a snowball's chance in hell of Trump being "president for life." I still cant believe China allowed that to happen. The entire reason for the two term rule was to prevent another Mao type cult of personality. China is already turning it's back on their agreement regarding Hong Kong. Jinping is a dictator. Plain and simple.
