Over the last six months, #Donald Trump has struggled to turn much of his agenda into reality. Despite this, the president is putting the blame [VIDEO] on the mainstream media.

Trump on Twitter

Not long after Donald Trump announced his campaign for president [VIDEO] it became clear that he wouldn't see eye to eye with the press. As the months rolled on during the 2016 presidential election, the former host of "The Apprentice" kicked his feud with reporters and the media into high-gear, opting to vent his frustrations out on #social media in an attempt to bypass the more traditional route of dealing with journalists. The rift between both sides became so toxic that in the days leading up to Election Day, it was common-place for reporters to come under threats from Trump supporters.

Following Trump's upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the billionaire real estate mogul has only become even more angry towards the press, labeling any reports that he doesn't agree with as "#fake news." Fast forward to present day and the relationship has not improved, which was evident during Trump's latest Twitter rant on August 6.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday night was Donald Trump, who took time away from his vacation at his private New Jersey golf course to hit back against the media. "The Fake News refuses to report the success of the first 6 months," Trump tweeted, before listing his alleged accomplishments as "S.C., surging economy & jobs,border & military security,ISIS & MS-13 etc." This isn't the first time that Trump has attempted to deflect from the negative headlines by using questionable data and statistics to promote his time in office.

Minutes later, Donald Trump posted a follow-up tweet where he commented on his recent phone call with South Korean President Moon over the recent United Nations vote on sanctions on North Korea. "Just completed call with President Moon of South Korea," Trump noted, while adding, "Very happy and impressed with 15-0 United Nations vote on North Korea sanctions."

Moving forward

While Donald Trump continues to put blame on the mainstream media for the struggles he has faced in the White House, the commander in chief has other issues to worry about. Whether it's his inability to repeal and replace Obamacare or the Russian scandal which grows by the day, Trump is sitting on an approval rating that has dropped to as low as 35 percent in the most recent round of polling.
