Donald Trump has sent out over 36,800 tweets since creating his account in March 2009, many of which were posted since he kicked off his presidential campaign back in 2015. As his Twitter use has increased, one host on MSNBC decided to compare the president to a child.

MSNBC on Trump

It started early on during the 2016 presidential election when Donald Trump would clash with the majority of the mainstream media. With each controversial policy proposal and questionable remark, the former host of "The Apprentice" decided that he could no longer count on the press to look the other way at his agenda.

In response, Trump took to social media, most notably Twitter, to push his policies and lash out at anyone who didn't agree with him. Whether it was the media, which he refers to as "fake news," critics in Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and even some Republicans, Trump has made it a habit to attack with his tweets. The president has even caused global concern with tweets directed at North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who he has since given the nickname of "Rocket Man." These issues and more were highlighted during the January 15 edition of "Deadline: White House" on MSNBC.

On the Monday edition of "Deadline: White House," host Nicolle Wallace was joined by Bret Stephens, a conservative columnist for the New York Times who has expressed his disdain for Donald Trump on more than one occasion.

Stephens blamed Trump for the lack of progress being made in Washington, citing his attacks on the media, as well as his "obscenities offered with respect to immigrants" and the president's "bizarre language about the size of his nuclear button." Stephens then pointed out Trump's "bigotry" and "obsessions," which Wallace was quick to agree with.

Doubling down was Nicolle Wallace, who ripped into Donald Trump over his childish use of social media. "We seemed to have glossed over the fight he is having the Wall Street Journal," Wallace said, in reference to the paper quoting the president for claiming he has a "good relationship" with Kim Jong-un. Trump denies he ever said that, but the Wall Street Journal was able to provide an audio recording.

"He thinks that the Twitter taunts constitute a relationship," Wallace continued. "He's like a 12-year-old Commander In Chief," she said, before stating, "I don’t know what other kind of relationship they have unless he’s suggesting there are talks we don’t know about."

Moving forward

While many in the press continue to hold the president's feet to the fire. Donald Trump is not letting up on his attacks against the so-called "fake news" media. As 2018 kicks into high gear, only time will tell how Trump's relationship with the media and his use of Twitter evolves.
