Just over a week after Hurricane Harvey devastated much of Texas, Donald Trump made yet another stop in the state. When addressing members of the United States Coast Guard, the president took time to use the aftermath of the storm to bash the media.

Trump on media

It's been eight days since Hurricane Harvey made landfall in the Long Star State in what experts are saying was the worst storm to hit Texas in close to 500 years. With winds up to 130 mph, the Category 4 storm hit the city of Houston the worst, with thousands of people being forced to flee their homes, and dozens reported dead as of press time.

After the first weekend that the storm hit, Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump made their way to the state, staying mostly on the outskirts in nearby Corpus Christi. However, Trump's visit was marred by media criticism that accused the president of using the trip as more of re-election rally. In addition, Melania was ripped on social media over her choice of clothing that she wore to a flood zone, which included stilettos. In attempt to right the ship, the first couple made their way back to Texas on Saturday, with the president making sure to take a shot at the media in the process, as reported by ABC News on September 2.

While in Houston to meet with victims of Hurricane Harvey, Donald Trump took time to praise the United States Coast Guard for the work that they have done over the last week in regards to the storm in the area.

As expected, the former host of "The Apprentice" couldn't resist taking a swipe at the media, as he continued his feud with the press.

"I hear the Coast Guard saved almost 11,000 people," Donald Trump said. "Think of it, 11,000 people by going into winds the media would not go into," Trump continued while pointing at the press.

"They (media) will not go into those winds unless it’s a really good story, in which case they will," he added. Trump's rift with the press has only increased since he was elected last November, as the president take made attacking reporters and various news outlets part of his daily routine.

Moving forward

While Donald Trump takes time to use a deadly storm to attack the mainstream media, the majority of the American people don't seem pleased with the job he's done in the White House over the last eight months.

According to the most recent round of polling data, the billionaire real estate mogul has just a 35 percent approval rating, which doesn't seem to be showing any signs of improvement in the near future.
