“But the fortunate thing about me is I have a big voice,” Trump said during an interview Friday. “I have a voice that people understand. And you see it now.”

After the president’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon lashed out at the media — “they should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while” — Trump echoed his sentiments in an interview this week.

“I think the media is the opposition party in many ways,” Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network. (RELATED: Sean Spicer Gets Praised By The Left And The Right After First Official Press Briefing)

“I’m not talking about everybody, but a big portion of the media, the dishonesty, total deceit and deception. It makes them certainly partially the opposition party, absolutely. I say they treat me so unfairly it’s hard to believe that I won.”
