President Trump said some reporters truly don't like our country and don't want to make America great again at his Tuesday night rally in Phoenix.
"You're taxpaying Americans who love our nation, obey our laws, and care for our people. It's time to expose the crooked media deceptions, and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions," Trump said.
"By the way, they are trying to take away our history and our heritage. You see that," he said.
"We're smart people," the president said to his supporters at the Phoenix Convention Center. "These are truly dishonest people. And not all of them. Not all of them. You have some very good reporters. You have some very fair journalists. But for the most part, honestly, these are really, really dishonest people, and they're bad people. And I really think they don't like our country. I really believe that. And I don't believe they're going to change, and that's why I do this. If they would change, I would never say it."
"These are sick people," Trump said of those in the media. "You know the thing I don't understand? You would think -- you would think they'd want to make our country great again, and I honestly believe they don't. I honestly believe it."
"If you want to discover the source of the division in our country, look no further than the fake news and the crooked media," Trump declared.
