President Trump and Melania Trump walked accross the South Lawn of the White House after their return on Saturday night.

President Trump returned to the United States on Saturday night from his nine-day, five-stop trip overseas, his first foreign trip after winning in the White House.

And on Sunday morning, Trump was back at it on Twitter. His topics included his trip, and a Republican win in a special election in Montana. And an old foil: the news media.

“Big win in Montana for Republicans!” Trump tweeted. And 15 minutes later: “Just returned from Europe. Trip was a great success for America. Hard work but big results!”

Then the president turned his sights on the news media, with whom he has had a rocky relationship. He has been especially vocal about media leaks from his administration.
