President Donald Trump has only been in office for just over three weeks, but he's already dealing with his first major scandal. With his National Security Adviser being forced to resign, Trump is more concerned about the news leaking to the press than why a member of his administration had to step down in the first place.

Trump on Twitter

Retired Gen. Michael Flynn announced his resignation as National Security Adviser last Monday night after multiple reports accused him of engaging in illegal communication with Russian officials. While Flynn denied any wrongdoing, it's since been revealed that he lied to Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, which caused an erosion of trust in the White House.

The story is the first scandal to rock the Trump administration, but the billionaire real estate mogul is more upset with the information leaking to the public, than Flynn's actual actions. As seen on his Twitter account on February 16, the president is not happy.

"Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter early Thursday morning, before adding, "Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize!" In a follow-up tweet, the former host of "The Apprentice" continued to vent his frustrations.

The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers!" he tweeted, while vowing, "They will be caught!"

Donald Trump then unloaded again on the 'Fake News' media, continuing a theme in his war of words with the press.

"FAKE NEWS media, which makes up stories and "sources," is far more effective than the discredited Democrats - but they are fading fast!" he tweeted.

Prior to his social media messages regarding the leakers and "fake news," Donald Trump decided to give himself credit for the recent gains in the stock market.

"Stock market hits new high with longest winning streak in decades," Trump wrote, before concluding, "Great level of confidence and optimism - even before tax plan roll-out!" This isn't the first time Trump has credited himself with the stock market, as he did so before he was even sworn into office while Barack Obama was still president.

Moving forward

With less than month as commander in chief, Donald Trump has already caused constant controversy that continues to hover over his presidency. While it's unknown what repercussions the Flynn scandal will have, it's safe to say that the media will keep their foot on the gas, and the president will react accordingly.
