The war of words between Donald Trump and the mainstream media has only increased since Election Day and it doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. After being bothered by yet another article in the New York Times, the president lashed out on social media.

Trump on NYT

Ever since the early days of his campaign for president, Donald Trump has not been on the same page as the majority of the news media. Over the course of his year and a half on the campaign trail, the former host of "The Apprentice" has engaged in a heated feud with various reporters and journalists, who he refers to as "terrible" and "the most dishonest people" he's ever met.

In the weeks leading up to the election, Trump accused the media of "rigging" the contest against him, and has only increased his attacks since being sworn into office. The president has made a habit of labeling any reports he disagrees with as "fake news," while giving certain media outlets unflattering nicknames. One of those nicknames is "failing," which he applies to the New York Times. As seen on his Twitter feed on March 30, the president is not holding back his thoughts about the newspaper and wants to take his criticism to the next level.

As seen on the president's Twitter account on Thursday morning, Donald Trump is not done with his attacks on the media, most notably the New York Times.

After re-posting an op-ed from the New York Post that was critical of the New York Times, the billionaire real estate mogul decided to add his own message, while hinting at potential legal action in the future through a change in the libel laws. "The failing @nytimes has disgraced the media world. Gotten me wrong for two solid years," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Change libel laws?"

Moving forward

While Donald Trump might be thinking of a potential lawsuit against one of the most respected news outlets in the world, it's unlikely that he would have a leg to stand on when it comes to the issue at hand.

The president and his administration have been accused, on more than one occasion, of pushing falsehoods to back up their agenda, which Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway once described as "alternative facts."
