President Donald Trump has made a habit of bypassing the mainstream news media and using his Twitter account to get his message across. In his latest social media attack, Trump targeted the Democratic National Committee over their new chairman.

After Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz stepped down as Chair of the Democratic National Committee last year following controversy surrounding the primary election, it was only a matter of time before a new individual was elected to lead the party. Heading into the vote for a new chairman, it came down to Rep.

Keith Ellison, a favorite of progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders, and tom perez, the former Secretary of Labor under former President Barack Obama. In a vote of 235-200, Perez edged out Ellison to become the new chairman, but not before his progressive opponent was quickly named deputy chair in a show of apparent unity. In response, Donald Trump pushed a conspiracy on the issue as seen on his Twitter account on February 26.

"The race for DNC Chairman was, of course, totally 'rigged,'" Donald Trump wrote on his Twitter on Sunday morning.

Not stopping there, the former host of "The Apprentice" continued his conspiracy theory. "Bernie's guy, like Bernie himself, never had a chance," Trump tweeted, before adding, "Clinton demanded Perez!" Despite his claim that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "demanded" that Perez become the new chair, the president provided no evidence to back up his allegations.

Donald Trump's tweet comes less than 24 hours after he sent out his first comment on the issue. Taking to his Twitter account on Saturday, the billionaire real estate mogul mockingly congratulated Tom Perez on his victory, before adding, "I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!" Backlash quickly followed Trump's tweet, with many accusing the president of sarcasm in his response to the new chair.
