Trump's open oppositional tone during CPAC speech, refuses to placate to the fake news

Buck Sexton thinks Trump's recent speech at CPAC was a good speech. He mentions how Trump began with a lot of talk about how the media isn't the enemy of the people, just the fake news. Trump claims that the "fake news" is the enemy of the people because they have no sources, they just make them up when there are none.

Buck explains that from a strategy point of view, taking a completely and openly oppositional tone to the media really makes sense for a Republican. He states that when you have the most powerful wide reaching media outlets in the country, all except a few in opposition to the president, the president does himself no favors by trying to win their favor.
