Given the assault on a reporter that occurred last week at Trump's El Paso, Texas, campaign rally, one would imagine 45 would take a step back and realize the weight his words carry.

The New York Times reporting is false. They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 20, 2019
Wasting no time, New York Times Publisher A.G. Sulzberger wrote a press release in which he dismissed the US president's tweets and called them "not just false" but also "dangerous."
"[The rhetoric] is particularly reckless coming from someone whose office gives him broad powers to fight or imprison the nation's enemies."
