Since the early days his campaign, Donald Trump has used social media to promote his message. After returning from his first foreign trip as president, Trump made up for lost time during a series of Twitter posts.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president, he spoke about his plans for immigration, and referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." After his speech, the majority of the media reacted negatively, planting a bitter seed that would eventually grow into an all out war between both sides.

With the mainstream media holding his feet to the fire on a daily basis, the former host of "The Apprentice" did his best to bypass traditional press coverage by using social media to get his agenda across and reach potential voters in the process. With many conservative Americans already pushing back with distrust for the media, often accusing reporters and journalists of having a liberal bias, Trump's anti-media message connected with those on the right, enabling the president to ride that wave of momentum to the Republican nomination and eventually the presidency. In the months since his inauguration, Trump has increased his war of words with the press, which appeared to reach a fever pitch when he had several well-respected news outlets banned from a press briefing at the White House earlier this year.

Since then, Trump has continued to hit back against the press, referring to them as "Fake News," which was evident during several tweets on May 28.

As seen on his Twitter account on Saturday, Donald Trump ripped into the media, and put the focus on their criticism of his social media use.

"The Fake News Media works hard at disparaging & demeaning my use of social media because they don't want America to hear the real story!" Trump tweeted out.

Earlier in the day, Donald Trump took to Twitter on multiple occasions to bash the press.

The president went as far as to accuse journalists and the "fake news" media of making up stories and having them leaked from the White House. "It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media," he tweeted out.

Moving forward

With Donald Trump back in the White House after a week-long international trip, the president is now faced with major issues at home. With the Russian scandal growing by the day, Trump is rumored to be pondering a shake-up in his administration, and only time will tell what that next step will be.
