Trump came out recently as stating that the media is the enemy of the people. The media is one of the things that can check the President - it's a first amendment right.
By being anti-media as the president of the United States, at least to the extent of the media that is actively against you,
you are attempting to remove one of the checks and balances that allows for you to do your job.
Trump is attempting to eliminate all media that is against him so the American people won't see his current and past mistakes both in office, and before.
He's attempting to establish power by removing any negative notions of himself, that's corrupt. Removing that check means you have more leeway to do whatever you want.
