'That's How Dictators Get Started': McCain Defends Press

Sen. John McCain says a free press is vital "to preserve democracy as we know it." And he cautions about efforts to muzzle a free press, saying "that's how dictators get started." The Arizona senator was asked in an interview for NBC's "Meet the Press" how he felt about President Donald Trump's tweet criticizing "the fake news media" that said "it is the enemy of the American people." McCain tells "Meet the Press," ''The fact is, we need you." He adds: "When you look at history, the first thing dictators do is shut down the press." McCain says he isn't saying Trump is trying to be a dictator but "we need to learn the lessons of history."

From coast to coast, thousands of people across the U.S. have spent their President's Day holiday weekend protesting Donald Trump's anti-immigration policies, and even more demonstrations are planned for Monday, NBC News reported. Protesters wielding signs in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York poured into the streets on Saturday calling for the establishment of sanctuary cities in order to end ICE raids. On Sunday, more than a thousand people rallied in New York City in support of Muslim Americans. Meanwhile, hundreds of scientists took to the streets of Boston urging Trump to recognize climate change and tackle environmental issues. Protesters held signs in the shape of telescopes and beakers that read "Scientists Serving the Common Good." The rally was taking place at the same time as the city's yearly American Association for the Advancement of Science conference. And on Monday, even more rallies are expected in at least 20 cities across the U.S., including in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C. and Chicago.
