“Is the press the enemy of the people?” Earhardt asked.

“No, not at all,” Trump replied. “But the fake news is and the fake news is comprised of — it’s a big chunk, okay?”

“Somebody said, ‘What’s the chunk?’ And I said, ’80 percent?’ It’s a lot. It’s a lot,” Trump explained.

“If I do something well, it’s not reported,” he continued. “Other than in the 20 percent. I mean, The New York Times cannot write a good story about me. They’re crazed. They’re lunatics.”
