To the Editor:

President Trump doesn’t seem to get it. He continues to tweet that CNN, NBC, the New York Times and other media outlets are “fake news,” So it is hardly surprising the so-called “fake news” media spends an inordinate amount of time featuring stories that are negative about his administration.

The president’s tweets about media are childish and do nothing but continue the silly back and forth between the president and the media. It is entertaining but hardly productive. Will the president stop his silly tweets in an attempt to heal the breach between his administration and much of the media?

As commander in chief, President Trump should realize he is in a battle he can’t win and should seek a truce.
