The Donald Trump administration has only been officially in the White House for four weeks and it's already dealing with major backlash. With each passing day, Trump is faced with new criticism, and he has decided to place the blame on the mainstream news media.

Trump on Twitter

President Donald Trump has only increased his war of words with the media in recent days, which appeared to reach a boiling point on Thursday when he held a press conference in the White House. For the better part of an hour, the commander in chief stood at the podium and blasted the press, accusing them of promoting "Fake News," while finding time to brag about his electoral college win.

In addition to his press conference, the former host of "The Apprentice" has increased his presence on social media, tweeting in the morning, afternoon, and night, using the press as his ultimate target. As seen on his Twitter account on February 18, Trump was back on the attack.

"Don't believe the main stream (fake news) media," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter early Saturday morning, before adding, "The White House is running VERY WELL." Not stopping there, Trump went on to conclude, "I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it." Trump later tweeted out that he will be holding a campaign-style rally in Florida, which has also raised eyebrows due to the fact that sitting presidents don't use hold events after only one month on the job.

Trump's claim that he "inherited a mess" was also a theme during the aforementioned press conference. That comment also resulted in criticism, as the billionaire real estate mogul took over the office following the departure of former President Barack Obama who made improvements since he came into the White House eight years earlier.

Despite the recent attacks by Donald Trump, Obama was recently rated the 12th best president in American history by a recently released survey on C-SPAN.

Moving forward

While Donald Trump has only been president for a month, he's already created a constant stream of controversy. As his time in office continues, it's unlikely that Trump will be willing to change his tune anytime soon.
