On Friday night, Donald Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters during a rally in Pensacola, Florida. As the crowd was filing in, a reporter for the Washington Post posted an image of a light crowd that was at the venue at the time, much to the chagrin of the president.

Trump's rally rage

Ever since Donald Trump picked up the upset win over Hillary Clinton last November, he's done something that presidents typically don't do after they are elected. In the 11 months that has followed, the former host of "The Apprentice" has held rallies for himself in areas where he preformed well during the election.

Trump's latest self-congratulatory rally took place on Friday night and was held in Pensacola, Florida. The location of the event was a curious one, as it took place just miles from Alabama, where a special election will take place in less than week to fill the vacant Senate seat, with Republican Roy Moore taking on Democrat Doug Jones. During his lengthy speech, Trump made sure to hit some of his favorite talking points, like bashing the media, attacking Democrats and Hillary Clinton, as well as patting himself on the back for the recent success of the economy and for allegedly winning the so-called "War on Christmas." After an image of the rally went viral on social media, showing a less than packed house, Trump decided to call out the reporter responsible for the picture by attacking him during a December 9 tweet.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday night, Donald Trump accused Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel of posting "fake news" about his rally.

"Dave Weigel of the Washington Post put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived at the venue, w/ thousands of people outside, on their way in," Trump tweeted.

"Real photos now shown as I spoke. Packed house, many people unable to get in," Donald Trump went on to tweet, while providing additional photos that show a larger and more enthusiastic crowd that the image in question.

Not stopping there, the president than demanded an apology and a retraction from paper. "Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo!" Trump concluded.

Closing out

As Donald Trump closes out his first year in office, it appears he's not looking to end his war of worlds with mainstream media anytime soon. Though Trump and his supporters claim to be riding high, recent polls show the president with an approval rating that lands between 32 and 35 percent.
