When a president is finally sworn into office, they are often judged by their first 100 days in the #White House. For #Donald Trump, he's not happy with how the media has handled their reporting of the start of his administration.
Trump on Twitter
Back in Jun 2015, Donald Trump stood on the floor of Trump Tower in #New York City and called a press conference to announce his plan to run for president.
During his speech, Trump went on to refer to illegal immigrants as "rapists" and "murderers," and instantly received heavy backlash as a result. From that point forward, the former host of "The Apprentice" would engage in a war of words with the media, leading to Trump calling out journalists during his campaign speeches, labeling them "terrible" and "the most dishonest people" he's ever met in his life. The feud between both sides only escalated after his election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, with Trump targeting CNN, the "failing" New York Times, and other well-respected news outlets for their coverage of his administration that he believes is not fair. The billionaire real estate mogul went on to take control of the term "fake news," using it to describe any report that is negative about his presidency. In addition, Trump even blocked several media outlets from attending a press briefing at the White House earlier this year. As seen on his Twitter account on April 21, the president is now going after the media for their reporting of his first 100 days in office..
No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 21, 2017
Taking to his Twitter account on Friday morning, Donald Trump pushed back at the press for criticizing the early part of his presidency. "No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!" Trump tweed out. The president has been frustrated during his first three months of being commander in chief, as he's run into issues dealing with the growing Russian scandal, in-fighting within his own administration, his controversial executive orders, as well as backlash stemming from his recent foreign policy decisions.
