Donald Trump and his feud with the media is not a secret, and has been on full display since the day his campaign kicked off. After three months in office, it doesn't appear that the president is willing to back down from his war of words anytime soon.

Trump on "Face the Nation"

It all started during his campaign announcement for president when Donald Trump referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." The majority of the mainstream media quickly reacted negatively, which planted the seed into what would grow into a full-blown feud between the press and the former host of "The Apprentice." Since being elected and sworn into office, the battle between Trump and the media has only increased, which appeared to reach a fever pitch when the White House blocked several well-respected news outlets from attending a press briefing.

It's become routine for Trump to push back against any report that doesn't promote and support his political agenda, calling it "fake news" in the process. Trump has even given nicknames to some, including the "failing New York Times," while mocking CNN and MSNBC for having lower ratings than the more conservative Fox News. These issues were addressed during an interview with CBS' "Face the Nation," which included Trump insulting the host right to his face.

Donald Trump sat down with CBS host John Dickerson this weekend for a one-on-one interview about his first 100 days in office. During the interview Trump was pressed about comments he recently made where he said he missed his old life, while admitting that his job as president is a lot harder than he thought.

Despite being quoted, Trump dismissed his own words and claimed that the media was to blame, which also included a personal swipe at Dickerson.

"It's very funny when the fake media goes out, we call the mainstream media, sometimes, I must say, that is you," Donald Trump said to John Dickerson.

In response, Dickerson asked if the president's comments were meant as a personal attack. "I love your show," Trump initially said, before adding, "I call it 'Deface the Nation!' "You know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct," he continued. The billionaire real estate mogul moved forward, claiming that the country is better off now that he is in office, while ignoring the most recent polls that show his favorability rating at just 40 percent with the American people.
