Former President George W. Bush told Matt Lauer that he does not consider the media “the enemy of the people” as Donald Trump has described it, and praised its role in facilitating democracy:
“I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. That we need an independent media to hold people like me to account. I mean, power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive and it’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power, whether it be here or elsewhere.”
