In what has become part of his morning routine, Donald Trump has once again decided to lash out on social media. As part of his latest rant, the president set his sights on the mainstream media and one of the highest ranking Republicans in the country.

Trump on Twitter

Not long after Donald Trump announced that he was running for president as a Republican, it became obvious that not everyone in the party was thrilled with his plan. As the GOP primary continued, various members of the Republican Party spoke out against the former host of "The Apprentice," expressing their concern over the potential damage he could do due to his controversial rhetoric and campaign style.

By the time Trump became the GOP nominee, the pressure was on high-ranking party officials to tame the billionaire real estate mogul during the general election, which he ended up coming out the winner against Hillary Clinton. Fast forward to present day and Trump has had many issues with Republicans in Congress, most notably his inability to get on the same page and convince them to repeal and replace Obamacare. As seen on his Twitter feed on August 24, Trump hit back against a top Republican, while also ripping into the media.

Taking to his Twitter feed on Thursday was Donald Trump, who decided to once again highlight the struggle over the future of the Affordable Care Act by attacking Mitch McConnell.

"The only problem I have with Mitch McConnell is that, after hearing Repeal & Replace for 7 years, he failed!" Trump tweeted, before adding, "That should NEVER have happened!"

In a two-part tweet that was sent moments earlier, Donald Trump addressed the controversy surrounding his recent re-election campaign speech in Phoenix which didn't go over well with the press.

"The Fake News is now complaining about my different types of back to back speeches," Trump wrote. "Well, there was Afghanistan (somber), the big Rally (enthusiastic, dynamic and fun) and the American Legion - V.A. (respectful and strong)," he tweeted again, while adding, "Too bad the Dems have no one who can change tones!" Trump's attacks on the press have become commonplace as he pushes forward during his first term in office.

Moving forward

After just over seven months in office, Donald Trump has not been able to fulfill many of his campaign promises. With the pressure continuing to mount, Trump is now sitting on an approval rating of 35 percent and it's showing no signs of improving anytime soon.
