Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler on Tuesday went after President Trump for calling the media the "enemy of the American people.

"To label the press or anybody else enemy of the people is a totalitarian tool of dictators," he said on CNN's "New Day."

The president often rails on the media, accusing reporters of biased and dishonest coverage against him.

He has recently taken to referring to some news organizations as "fake news" and tweeted last week that the "FAKE NEWS media" was the "enemy of the America people."

Trump during a rally Saturday in Florida continued to escalate his feud with the media, telling the crowds at his rally that he wanted to "speak to you without the filter of the fake news."
