Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, he has increased his war of words against the mainstream media. On Monday, the White House continued their grudge, with the president claiming that the press was ignoring global terrorists attacks and failing to report them.

Fox News on Trump

On Monday morning, Donald Trump started off his day with a series of anti-media tweets. The commander in chief targeted several news outlets, including CNN, ABC, and NBC, and stated that any polls that they release are just "fake news." Hours later, Trump returned to Twitter, this time going after the New York Times, before labeling the newspaper "failing" and accusing them of publishing "fiction" about his administration.

Later on in the day, Trump spoke at CENTCOM in Florida, where he claimed the media was looking the other way in regards to global islamic terrorist attacks. After the White House released a list of nearly 80 Islamic terrorist attacks that the media allegedly ignored, one Fox News host was quick to fact-check, as reported on February 7 by Mediaite.

Fox News host Shepard Smith highlighted the aforementioned issue between the press and Donald Trump, and debunked the president over his allegations. "The president's assertion is false," Smith said of the list.

"The White House knows that it was false or could have known that it was false with a quick Google check," he continued, before noting, "but either did not do so or decided not to tell the truth." Not stopping there, Smith continued his criticism of the billionaire real estate mogul and his team, stating, "What they're saying is not true."

On the list released by Donald Trump, it cites attacks in San Bernardino, and at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in additional to international attacks in Paris, Nice, and Brussels.

While the list in question did note several attacks in the Middle East that didn't get wide reporting, the majority of the incidents were covered, either in length, or in passing.

As the feud between the press and Donald Trump continues, it doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The former host of "The Apprentice" has made it a routine to bash journalists and reporters, labeling anyone he doesn't agree with as "fake news." It's unknown if the relationship will improve in the future, but it's not showing positive signs as of press time.
