Donald Trump is not a fan of the majority of the mainstream media and has made his thoughts known on an almost daily basis. During his latest rant on social media, the president called for contest to be held to see which network promotes the most "Fake News."

Trump on Twitter

For the better part of two and a half years, Donald Trump has made a habit of clashing with the media. Since the day he announced his campaign for president back in the summer of 2015, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been at odds with the press after he labeled illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." Throughout the rest of the 2016 election cycle, Trump would rip into the news media, often calling out reporters and journalists during his campaign rallies, causing a hostile environment for those in attendance.

Following his election win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, the president was accused of benefiting from "fake news" on the internet. In an attempt to counter the allegation, Trump used the term "fake news" on a routine basis to describe every news outlet that he disagreed with, which has now become synonyms with the commander in chief. As seen on his Twitter feed on November 27, Trump is now promoting a contest to be held to see which news network should be given the "fake news" trophy.

Taking to Twitter on Monday morning, Donald Trump went back on the attack against most news outlets, with the exception of Fox News, and promoted a contest to see which network would win the "fake news trophy." "We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me)," Trump said while offering praise onto himself.

"They are all bad," he continued, before noting, "Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!"

In a follow-up post, Donald Trump re-tweeted an article that found that MSNBC's "Morning Joe" pre-taped last Friday morning's program earlier in the week in an attempt to avoid running a live episode after Thanksgiving, with the president mocking the show in the process.

"The good news is that their ratings are terrible, nobody cares!" he tweeted.

As Donald Trump continues on with his attack on the mainstream media, he has many other issues to worry about as commander in chief. After almost a year in office, the president has gotten little to no legislation passed as predictable clashes with Democrats have taken place, as well as constant in-fighting with his own Republican Party.
