During his entire campaign for president, President Donald Trump made no secret that he wasn't a fan of the media. In recent days, Trump has increased his attacks on the press, most notably the New York Times.

Trump on the Times

Donald Trump kicked off his candidacy for president in June 2015 at Trump Tower in New York City. Within minutes, Trump labeled illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," leading the media to quickly criticize. From that point forward, the billionaire real estate mogul engaged in a war of words with the press, hitting back at various cable news channels, hosts, and newspapers.

One of his main targets has been the New York Times, which he refers to as "failing," despite the paper's subscription numbers increasing following the president's recent criticism. As seen on his Twitter account on February 6, Trump is continuing to lash out at the paper, among other issues.

In his fourth anti-media tweet of the day, Donald Trump went back to attacking the "failing" New York Times. "The failing @nytimes was forced to apologize to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win," Trump wrote on Twitter Monday night, before adding, "Now they are worse!" Trump's nighttime tweet was his second shot at the paper within just a few hours.

After starting his morning off by labeling CNN, ABC, and NBC "fake news," the president sent out his first tweet against the New York Times at around 11:30 a.m.

on the East Coast. "The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me," the former host of "The Apprentice" sent out on Twitter, while claiming, "They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!"

Trump on terrorism

In addition to his Twitter tirades against multiple news outlets, Donald Trump also spoke out against the media during a speech at CENTCOM in Florida.

The commander in chief took the time to accuse the press of ignoring terrorist attacks around the world, which prompted the White House to release a list of alleged "unreported" incidents.

Following the release of the list, Trump returned to Twitter again, while calling for the courts to allow his "Muslim ban" to stand. "The threat from radical islamic terrorism is very real, just look at what is happening in Europe and the Middle-East," he tweeted, also noting, "Courts must act fast!"
