After close to six months in the White House, Donald Trump has faced an onslaught of criticism from his critics and the mainstream media. With the pressure mounting, the president has once again decided to lash out on social media.

President on Twitter

It all began back in June 2015 when the future president stood on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City and declared that he was going to run for president. During his speech, the former host of "The Apprentice" gave his thoughts on immigration reform, before labeling those who come into the United States illegally as "rapists" and "murderers." In response, the majority of the media reacted negatively, kicking off what has become a two-year war of worlds between the press and the administration.

During the 2016 presidential election, Trump would openly label the media as "terrible," while calling journalists some of the "worst people" he's ever met. In an attempt to bypass the press, Trump opted to use social media as his number one form of communication, tweeting on an almost daily basis, while touching on a variety of topics. As seen on his Twitter account on June 13, Trump once again found himself on social media.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday morning, Donald Trump decided to turn his attention to the media.

"The Fake News Media has never been so wrong or so dirty," he tweeted, before adding, "Purposely incorrect stories and phoney sources to meet their agenda of hate. Sad!." As the commander in chief continues to fight back against the mainstream media, he quickly shifted his focus onto the news that yet another court had stuck down his travel ban executive order.

"Well, as predicted, the 9th Circuit did it again - Ruled against the TRAVEL BAN at such a dangerous time in the history of our country.

S.C.," the president posted to his Twitter feed. The tweet was in reference to the three-person panel on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that shot down the president's ban, finding, "we conclude that the President, in issuing the Executive Order, exceeded the scope of the authority delegated to him by Congress." Following his two morning tweets, the president went on to re-tweet one of his followers who attacked liberal Americans, writing, "Liberals have an agenda and it's not in America's best interest. Keep fighting the good fight! We stand with you!"
