The Senate adopted a unanimous consent resolution on Thursday stating the press “is not the enemy of the people,”a declaration put forth by Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz and Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer. Republican Sen. John Kennedy told Roll Call Thursday afternoon that he’s “always supported freedom of the press.” When asked if the resolution was a direct rebuke of President Donald Trump’s harsh words toward the press, Kennedy said: “I don’t consider it to be a direct rebuke of anybody or anything.”
