The First Amendment matters. For President Trump, however, the press is the "enemy of the American people." We cannot let such rhetoric be normalized!
CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS AND ASK THAT THEY PUT OUT A FORMAL STATEMENT CONDEMNING TRUMP'S ATTACKS ON A FREE PRESS
Call your Representative and Senators. If you're in Illinois, click here for phone numbers. If you're not in Illinois, click here to look up your elected's contact information. NOTE: If you don't have luck at their DC number, call a district office (numbers for those are on their websites).
SCRIPT: Hello, my name is X and I am a constituent. Has Senator/Representative X issued a statement yet regarding Trump's statement that the press is an "enemy of the American people"?
If yes: "Please direct me to the link so I may share it with my friends & family."
If no or I don't know: "I urge Senator/Representative X to issue an immediate statement on Trump's comments. The First Amendment is the cornerstone of our democracy. Republicans and Democrats alike need to be on the right side of history and make a public statement that this view of the press is unacceptable. Thank you."
