Donald Trump just returned home to the United States after a nearly two-week-long trip through Asia. After getting back into the states, the president made sure to hit back at the media for how they covered his time overseas.

It all started back on the floor of Trump Tower in the summer of 2015. With his family by his side, Donald Trump caused a media frenzy when he announced that he would be running for president in the Republican primary election. Initially viewed as a joke candidate looking to boost the ratings on his reality show, Trump proved otherwise by picking up steam and vaulting to the head of the pack.

After a grueling primary election, Trump was named the GOP nominee at the Republican National Convention last summer. Just four months later and the billionaire real estate mogul was able to pull off the shocking upset win over Hillary Clinton, completing one of the most controversial campaigns in recent history. During his campaign, and since his election win, the president has engaged in a heated war of words with the majority of the media, while accusing them of bias against him. Trump would routinely hit back against the press during the election cycle, but has increased his attacks since getting into the White House. One of the president's top media targets has been the New York Times, which he has given the nickname of "failing," despite their strong subscription sales.

In addition, Trump has gone on to label any reports he disagrees with as "fake news" in what continues to this day. As seen on his Twitter feed on November 15, Trump is not done lashing out.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday morning, Donald Trump ripped into the New York Times over their coverage of his time in Asia, in particular his relationship with China and President Xi.

"The failing @nytimes hates the fact that I have developed a great relationship with World leaders like Xi Jinping, President of China," Trump tweeted out.

"They should realize that these relationships are a good thing, not a bad thing.

The U.S. is being respected again. Watch Trade!" Donald Trump added in a follow-up tweet. In his third and final post on the matter as of press time, the former host of "The Apprentice" doubled down on his attack on the New York Times. "It is actually hard to believe how naive (or dumb) the Failing @nytimes is when it comes to foreign policy...weak and ineffective!" he wrote.
