Donald Trump was ready to hand out the very first "Fake News Awards" this Monday, but there is now a change of plans. In his most recent post on social media, the president decided to switch the date.

Trump on Fake News

It all started during Donald Trump's announcement for president back in June 2015 on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City. It was at this time where Trump made his now infamous remarks about illegal immigrants from Mexico being "rapists" and "murderers." The reaction from the media was predictably negative, a theme that continued during the rest of the election and through Trump's first year in office.

During this time, Trump has increased his attacks on the press, calling out newspapers like the New York Times, referring to them as "failing," while ripping into cable outlets like CNN. The former host of "The Apprentice" has even singled out individual reporters and journalists, most recently CNN host Jake Tapper and "Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff. Last month the White House announced that they would be handing out awards to the news outlets and stories they say are the most inaccurate, which Trump gave an update on during a January 7 tweet.

In a Sunday afternoon tweet, Donald Trump spoke out about the "Fake News Awards." "The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday," Trump wrote.

"The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!" he concluded.

In a follow-up tweet just minutes later, Donald Trump went on to gloat about the success of the stock market in a possible attempt to deflect from recent scandals and controversy.

"The Stock Market has been creating tremendous benefits for our country in the form of not only Record Setting Stock Prices, but present and future Jobs, Jobs, Jobs," he wrote. "Seven TRILLION dollars of value created since our big election win!" Trump added.

Quick shots

After Donald Trump's latest round of tweets, social media users fired back.

"The entire world is laughing at us because of you. But you wouldn’t know because you live in a bubble and surround yourself with yes men because your fragile can’t take criticism," one tweet read.

"I guess it will be broadcast on FOX News, the official media outlet of the Great Supreme Leader of the Republic of the United States," one Twitter user sarcastically wrote.

"You should win the award for the most lies one person can spit out in a lifetime!!!" an additional tweet noted.

"Must you tweet about everything? Most busy presidents take time to rest on a slow world event Sunday not watch TV. Damn!!" yet another tweet wrote. "Are you broadcasting this on the Gorilla Channel?" a follow-up tweet read.
