Over the last 48 hours, President Donald Trump has been forced to deal with a lot on his plate. After spending time in West Palm Beach, Florida hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the president made his way back to Washington, D.C. but not before taking a shot at the media in the process.

Trump on Twitter

Donald Trump and Shinzo Abe spent much of the weekend playing golf at the president's Mar-a-Largo resort in the Sunshine State. As their golf outing was taking place, reports confirmed that Trump kept members of the press in one private room, and taped up the windows so they couldn't see the two in action.

Later on that night, Trump and Abe held a late-night news conference, where the two appeared to be on the same page when it came to opposing North Korea and leader Kim Jong-un. As Trump made his way back to the White House on Sunday afternoon, the president decided to lash out at the media and brag about the crowd size.

"Just leaving Florida. Big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road that the FAKE NEWS media refuses to mention," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon, before adding, "Very dishonest!" Trump's tweet comes as he has only increased his war of words against the press, which has become a daily routine on social media.

Over the last week, the former host of "The Apprentice" has continued to target two of his biggest media rivals, The New York Times and CNN. Often referring to the New York Times as "failing," while bashing CNN for their alleged low ratings, Trump smears the news outlets by labeling them "fake news." The tension between the White House and the mainstream media has only increased since Inauguration Day, and hasn't shown signs of slowing down anytime soon.

After less than a month as the new commander in chief, Donald Trump has increased his use of social media, bypassing traditional media outlets in an attempt to create his own form of news. According to a recent poll released by Emerson College, 49 percent of Americans view Trump as "truthful," compared to only 39 percent who felt the same about the news media.
