Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) plans to deliver a speech this week condemning President Trump’s frequent attacks on the press and comparing him to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, NBC News reported Sunday.

“2017 was a year which saw the truth — objective, empirical, evidence-based truth —more battered and abused than any other time in the history of our country, at the hands of the most powerful figure in our government,” Flake will say in his speech, according to excerpts obtained by NBC News.

Flake, who is retiring from the Senate when his term ends next January, has said he plans to deliver a series of speeches about how Trump’s presidency has impacted the country.

This week’s speech will focus on Trump’s tendency to attack the press, including last year when he tweeted that media outlets were the “enemy of the American People!”
