With each day that passes, it seems like there鈥檚 a new political story coming from the White House. Just this week alone we saw President Trump鈥檚 first official press conference, which sparked quite the debate, a new inauguration poster with an all too common typo, and a recap rally in Florida. Perhaps most shocking, however, was seeing our president call news media the 鈥渆nemy of the American people鈥 via social media. Yikes!

In a tweet sent out following the conference, the president attacked five of the nation鈥檚 biggest news outlets directly, writing: 鈥淭he FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!鈥

It didn鈥檛 take long for journalists, as well as those who merely support them, to come together in an effort to show President Trump that news outlets are, in fact #NotTheEnemy. The hashtag has been trending ever since the original comment was made and include many powerful, moving stories of journalists who risked it all to cover the news they believed in. So far, thousands of #NotTheEnemy tweets have been sent out and the hashtag is showing no signs of slowing down. Take a peek at a few of the most powerful ones we found below.

Meanwhile, others have been using the hashtag to address President Trump directly, like YA writer and blogger Danielle Binks who shared a photo of a powerful quote from Thomas Jefferson that鈥檚 found on the streets of New York: 鈥淲here the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.鈥

President Trump鈥檚 response came in the form of another tweet, this one declaring: 鈥淒on鈥檛 believe the main stream (fake news) media. The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it.鈥
