Trump attackerar den fria pressen

Så har Donald Trump åter visat sig olämplig som president. I fredags träffade han Putin. Anne Applebaum återger i Washington Post, där hon även tar upp Putins attack på liberalismen:

”On Friday afternoon, President Trump appeared with Putin, laughing and joking. He waved away a group of journalists: “Get rid of them. Fake news is a great term, isn’t it? You don’t have this problem in Russia, but we do.”

Indeed, Russia has a different attitude to journalists: Periodically, they are arrested, harassed and even murdered by agents of the state. That’s what happens when you don’t have the rules and practices of a liberal society to protect them. It’s a world that is more comfortable for despots and dictators, and it’s unsurprising that Putin prefers it. How long will Americans be willing to be led by someone who agrees?”
