A journalist working for the New York Times suggested on Twitter on Tuesday that Trump supporters should be labeled enemies of the state.

NYT Reporter: Trump Supporters are ‘Enemies of the State’

A reporter for The New York Times said Tuesday that supporters of former President Donald Trump should be labeled as “enemies of the state” in order to fix America’s national security “dilemma.”

Katie Benner said on Twitter amid the first Jan. 6 committee hearing that the committee “underscores” efforts to “combat legitimate national security threats.”
