Ever since Donald Trump was sworn into office, he's faced an onslaught of criticism from his political opponents and the majority of the mainstream media. As the president continues his war of words against the press, he's using questionable information to backup his agenda.

Trump on Twitter

It didn't take long for Donald Trump and the media to get off on the wrong foot. During his speech to announce his campaign for president back in the summer of 2015, Trump labeled illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," which instantly triggered backlash among the press.

Ever since then, the former host of "The Apprentice" has made a habit out of bashing the media, labeling any reports he doesn't agree with as "Fake News." In recent weeks, Trump's expanded that criticism, which has included shots at hosts on MSNBC, and the entire network for CNN. After CNN was forced to retract a false story linking the president to a Russian bank, Trump amped up his attack. In addition, Trump set his sights on the hosts of "Morning Joe," going as far as calling Mika Brzezinski "dumb as a rock" while accusing her of having a facelift. In his latest pair of tweets on July 3, the president decided to question the media once again, while also bragging about the current economic numbers.

Taking to Twitter on July 3 was Donald Trump as the president was quick to cite recent economic news to attack the press. "Really great numbers on jobs & the economy! Things are starting to kick in now, and we have just begun!" Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Don't like steel & aluminum dumping!"

Not stopping there, Donald Trump posted a follow-up tweet where he questioned whether or not the media would report the economic news in question.

"Dow hit a new intraday all-time high!" Trump wrote on his Twitter feed, before rhetorically asking, "I wonder whether or not the Fake News Media will so report?"

Twitter reacts

Within minutes of sending out his latest round of tweets, critics of the president revolted on social media. "You realize that the term "Fake News" was created to describe bullshit news stories out there which you asked the Russians to share.

Right??" Greg Shugar replied, before adding, "The irony is lost on you."

"Again? Haven't you got more important things to be doing...like your job?" Sarah-Elizabeth Daly wrote on Twitter. "Will you take credit when it hits the all-time low?" actor Tommy Campbell went on to ask. "Real men are confident in themselves enough that they don't search for constant validation. You are a very sad thing," Jose Sanchez said.

"Cool. Now go enjoy your holiday instead of bragging about Wall Street and neglecting your wife," an additional tweet read. The negative responses continued to pour in as it was made more than clear that the rift between many Americans and the White House was not going to end anytime soon.
