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.
It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2017
Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media, and they don't mention names....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2017
....it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2017
Does anyone notice how the Montana Congressional race was such a big deal to Dems & Fake News until the Republican won? V was poorly covered— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2017
British Prime Minister May was very angry that the info the U.K. gave to U.S. about Manchester was leaked. Gave me full details!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2017
