The war between President Donald Trump and the media appears to be growing by the day. As Trump continues to sidestep the press in favor of social media, Trump once again took a shot at one of his top targets.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump first announced that he was running for president, he quickly found himself in a feud with the mainstream media for referring to illegal immigrants as "rapists" and "murderers." Over the next year and a half, Trump would find ways to avoid dealing with journalists and reporters, most notably using his Twitter account to connect and engage with the American people.

While the billionaire real estate mogul has had an issue with various news outlets, cable new channels, and other members of the press, its been his war of words with CNN that have become the most heated. As seen on his Twitter account on February 12, the president is back at it, this time dragging Sen. Bernie Sanders into the equation.

During an interview with CNN on Saturday, Bernie Sanders jokingly brought up the allegations that the network was "Fake News." Moments later, the Vermont senator was taken off the air due to the channel having alleged problems with the video stream.

Many questioned whether or not CNN was honest in why they ended the interview with Sanders, which was the target of Trump's tweet. "While on FAKE NEWS @CNN, Bernie Sanders was cut off for using the term fake news to describe the network," the president tweeted, before adding, "They said technical difficulties!"

Grudge match

This isn't the first time that Donald Trump has questioned the credibility of the network.

Not long after he was sworn into office, Trump held a press conference inside Trump Tower in New York City. During the press conference, Trump refused to allow CNN reporter Jim Acosta to even ask a question, while publicly humiliating him in the process. Turning to Acosta, the former host of "The Apprentice" stated, "You're fake news," before moving on to the next question.

As Trump completes his third week in the White House, it doesn't appear that his relationship with the media will be improving anytime soon.
