It's no secret that Donald Trump prefers to communicate through social media instead of speaking to the press directly. While many have complained that Trump has obsessed over his use of Twitter, the president doesn't seem ready to tone down his actions anytime soon.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president back in June 2015, he quickly got on the wrong side of the mainstream media when he referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." At this point, Trump decided to tap into his large social media following and popularity and pushed his message out on Twitter and Facebook as a way to bypass the media.

In the two years that have followed, Trump and Twitter have gone together hand and hand, with the former host of "The Apprentice" increasing his use of the social media platform ever since he pulled off the shocking upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November. After seven months in office, Trump's relationship with the press has only gotten worse, leading to the president firing back once again at the media during a tweet on August 1.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday was Donald Trump as he once again sent out several tweets, with one in defense of his use of social media.

"Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people)," Trump tweeted out, before adding, "Only way for me to get the truth out!"

In addition, Donald Trump also expressed his anger at the media for not giving him enough credit for the current state of the stock market. "Stock Market could hit all-time high (again) 22,000 today.

Was 18,000 only 6 months ago on Election Day," Trump posted, while stating, "Mainstream media seldom mentions!"

While Donald Trump continues to use Twitter to bash his critics and gloat about his alleged success as president, the commander in chief is facing many other issues.

With the Russian scandal growing by the day and his inability to rally enough Republicans in Congress to repeal Obamacare, Trump is also dealing with internal issues in his administration, ranging from the recent firing of Reince Preibus as Chief of Staff to the resignation of Anthony Scaramucci as White House Communications Director after just 10 days on the job. With an approval rating of just 35 percent, the billionaire real estate mogul appears to be doing whatever it takes to spin the news in the White House as a positive.
