After two weeks in the White House, President Donald Trump has continued his war on the news media and increased his use of social media in the process. As he kicks off the start of his weekend, Trump sent out his eighth tweet of the night, this time targeting taxes and tariffs.

Trump on Twitter

It's no secret that Donald Trump and the news media don't see eye to eye. As their war of words heats up, the billionaire real estate mogul has used social media to bypass the press and get his message out to the American people. On Friday, the former host of "The Apprentice" sent out seven different tweets heading into the night, but he still had more to get off his chest.

After meeting with several business officials in the White House earlier in the day, Trump voiced his opposition to foreign countries enacting taxes on American businesses, as seen in a Twitter post on February 3.

"Countries charge U.S. companies taxes or tariffs while the U.S. charges them nothing or little," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Friday night, before adding, "We should charge them SAME as they charge us!" Trump's comments come as critics continue to hammer the new president for catering to the wealthy and big business, while doing little to help workers on the floor.

Trump critics

Over the last 24 hours, Donald Trump has caused a social media backlash from his political opponents and critics. Prior to his tax and tariff tweet, the former host of "The Apprentice" railed against Arnold Schwarzenegger, continuing his feud with his replacement as host of "The New Celebrity Apprentice."

Not stopping there, Trump went on to slam the Obama-signed Iran deal, while also lashing out at the media for being "fake news" after reporting over a recent controversial phone call he had with the Prime Minister of Australia.

Moving forward, Trump went on to target radical Islamic terrorism, "evil" coming into the United States, and "paid protesters."

Just days after winning the election last November, Donald Trump sat down for an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" and vowed to be "very restrained" when it came to his use of social media. Despite his promise, it appears that the new president will be continuing to utilize Twitter, regardless of the criticism that often follows.
