The coverage of the US president’s work in the US media is prejudiced and reflects the prevailing opinion among professional journalists, also shared by supporters of the US Democratic Party that Donald Trump is not a legitimate president, does not correspond to his position and must be removed from power in any way.
This is in the <strong> The Washington Times, which is sympathetic to the US president, writes Stephen Presser, honorary professor at the Pritzker School of Law.
