As he has in the past, Donald Trump kicked off his morning with a rant on social media. After targeting the Washington Post on Twitter, the president didn't get the best response from his critics.

Trump on WaPo

Donald Trump is not happy with a recent headline from the Washington Post, fitting in line with his nearly 3-year long feud with the mainstream media.

Since day one of his campaign for president, Trump has clashed with the press over their handling of his political career, from the moment he announced his plan to run for office all the way to present day. Trump's current grudge comes in regards to how the Washington Post has reported the issues on trade, specifically with China where the president has called to put tariffs on the country.

In a tweet sent out on April 5, Donald Trump ripped into the Washington Post. "The Fake News Washington Post, Amazon's 'chief lobbyist,' has another (of many) phony headlines," Trump tweeted. "'Trump Defiant As China Adds Trade Penalties.' WRONG!" the president added, while noting. "Should read, 'Trump Defiant as U.S.

Adds Trade Penalties, Will End Barriers And Massive I.P. Theft.' Concluding his tweet, Trump wrote, "Typically bad reporting!" As expected, those who oppose the the commander in chief made sure to remind the president about the reality of the situation at hand.

"Is this the flush-the-meth-down-the-toilet phase of your so called presidency? You're so scared that you're freaking out," another tweet added.

"Trump starts trade war for no reason, blames media for reporting the truth.Yeah, that's a more accurate headline," a social media user wrote. "Hypocrite. You use USPS to deliver your Chinese manufactured products and Ivanka uses AmazonPay to collect her money on your online sales companies," a follow-up tweet went on to read.
