After seven months in the White House, #Donald Trump has struggled to live up to the promises he made on the campaign trail. As his popularity with the American people continues to nose-down, Trump is doing his best to deflect [VIDEO]away from the reality in an attempt to smear the mainstream media.

Trump on Twitter

It's no secret that Donald Trump and the majority of the mainstream media don't see eye to eye. It started back during his campaign announcement for president [VIDEO]in June 2015 when he referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." The press quickly hit back at the former host of "The Apprentice," much to the chagrin of Trump and the right-wing press.

Over the last two years, the relationship between Trump and the media has only gotten worse, which has escalated since his upset election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November. Following the results of Election Day, Trump was accused of benefiting from "#fake news" on the internet, but has since taken the word and turned it around to describe any reports from media outlets he doesn't agree with. Fast forward to present day and Trump is facing an approval rating of just 35 percent, which is showing no signs of improving anytime soon. As seen on his Twitter account on August 8, Trump is once again hitting back.

Taking to his Twitter feed on Tuesday afternoon was Donald Trump as the commander in chief is on the clear defensive when it comes to his falling poll numbers.

"After 200 days, rarely has any Administration achieved what we have achieved..not even close!" Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Don't believe the Fake News Suppression Polls!"

In yet another tweet, Donald Trump accused the #New York Times and the Washington Post of ignoring a meeting that took place last year between former President Bill Clinton and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. "E-mails show that the Amazon Washington Post and the Failing New York Times were reluctant to cover the Clinton/Lynch secret meeting in plane," Trump posted.

Moving forward

As Donald Trump and his administration continue to engage in a war of words with the press, the billionaire real estate mogul has many other issues to worry about. With his inability to repeal and replace Obamacare, make any moves on immigration, and with the Russian scandal growing by the day, only time will tell how the future of the Trump administration plays out.
