It's no secret that Donald Trump and the mainstream media have not always been on the same page. After one of Trump's most hated news outlets finally published something he agreed with, the president still couldn't help but go on the attack.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president, he quickly received criticism from the press after labeling illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Over the next year and a half, the former host of "The Apprentice" made it part of his daily routine to attack reporters, journalists, cable news outlets, and newspapers for reporting stories that he didn't agree with.

Since being elected last November, Trump has referred to nearly all news reports that reflect negatively on his administration as "fake news," while name-dropping some of the news outlets he despises the most. The New York Times has been at the top of Trump's hit list for sometime, and the president once again took a shot at the paper during tweet-storm on April 1.

Returning to his Twitter feed after a morning of social media attacks, Donald Trump directed his attention to the New York Times. However, this time the billionaire real estate mogul quoted a favorable portion of an article that was critical of the Affordable Care Act, but still took time to insult the paper in the process.

"The failing @nytimes finally gets it," Donald Trump tweeted, before quoting a recent NYT's article, reading, "In places where no insurance company offers plans, there will be no way for ObamaCare customers to use subsidies to buy health plans." In a follow up tweet, Trump interpreted the article to mean, "In other words, Ocare is dead.

Good things will happen, however, either with Republicans or Dems."

Moving forward

Donald Trump has increased his focus on health care reform over the last week after his Obamacare replacement plan failed to gain enough support in the House of Representatives that he was forced to pull the bill before a vote could even take place. The president has since put blame on Democrats, and Republicans who refused to support the bill, but has not taken any personal responsibility as of press time.
