Donald Trump has once again decided to vent his frustrations [VIDEO] on social media. This time, the president is backing his favorite cable news station while bashing the network he finds most damaging.

Trump on Fox News

It all started during the early days of the 2016 presidential election [VIDEO]. After Donald Trump stood on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City back in the summer of 2015, he quickly came under fire from the media after labeling illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Over the course of the next year and a half, the former host of "The Apprentice" would engage in a heated war of words with the majority of the mainstream press, which resulted in Trump increasing his use of social media to bypass more traditional news outlets.

After locking up the GOP nomination, it became commonplace for Trump to trash reporters, journalists, and news stations on the campaign trail, while members of his campaign routinely argued with most cable news hosts. The lone exception was #Fox News, as the conservative-leaning network came to the aide of Trump, with hosts like Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and the crew on "Fox & Friends" doubling down on his campaign talking points. When it came to the one network that Trump couldn't stand, it ended up being CNN, which the president continued to attack during a tweet on November 25.

Taking to his #Twitter account on Saturday night, Donald Trump took time to praise Fox News and attack CNN, while putting a special focus on the network's intentional reporting.

"Fox News is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN," Trump tweeted.

"Outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly," Donald Trump went on to tweet. In conclusion, the billionaire real estate added another cheap shot at CNN, tweeting, "The outside world does not see the truth from them!" As with many of Trump's other tweets, he added no facts to back up his claims, as the White House continues on with their attack on any news outlets that challenged their agenda.

The next step

Donald Trump's latest Twitter attack on CNN and praise of Fox News doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon, as the rift between the media and the administration moves forward. With his approval ratings dropping and the investigation into Russian election interference heating up, only time will tell how Trump handles the next few months of his time in office. #fake news
