It's no secret that #Donald Trump likes to use social media to vent his frustrations [VIDEO] and reach the American people, and he did just that heading into the weekend. In his latest tweetstorm, the president decided to go back on the attack against former FBI Director #James Comey and #Hillary Clinton.

Trump on Twitter

It didn't take long for Donald Trump to realize that he wouldn't be on the same page as the majority of the mainstream media. Within moments of announcing his campaign for president [VIDEO]back in June 2015, the press came down hard on him following his controversial remarks about illegal immigrants from Mexico being "rapists" and "murderers." In the months that followed, Trump would go on to use Twitter and other social media platforms as a way to bypass the traditional press.

This strategy has only increased since his election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November, with Trump lashing out on Twitter on a routine basis. Trump's latest target is once again James Comey, the former FBI Director who was fired by the president earlier this summer before testifying against him in Congress. As seen on his Twitter feed on September 1, the president is not happy.

On Friday morning, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham released a joint statement claiming James Comey had exonerated Hillary Clinton over her email server issues as Secretary of State before completing his investigation.

This issue was highlighted during Fox News' "Fox & Friends", in which former Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz was asked about the news at hand, stating, "How does not every American look at this and say 'This is a rigged system?'"

In response, Donald Trump took to Twitter and didn't hold back his thoughts. "Wow, looks like James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton long before the investigation was over...and so much more," Trump tweeted, before quoting Chaffetz by adding, "A rigged system!"

Follow-ups

In a two-part tweet that followed his attack on James Comey and Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump then tried to have a more positive tone by praising his new Chief of Staff John Kelly. "General John Kelly is doing a great job as Chief of Staff," Trump wrote.

"I could not be happier or more impressed - and this Administration continues to get things done at a record clip," Donald Trump added.

"Many big decisions to be made over the coming days and weeks. AMERICA FIRST!" the president tweeted. Despite his claims, Trump is struggling to convince the American people that he is getting the job done in the White House, with the latest round of polling showing his approval rating at just 35 percent.
