Donald Trump and the mainstream media have not been on the same page since the day he kicked off his campaign for president back in 2015. After Trump once against accused the paper of "fake news," the president faced an instant fact-check over his remarks.

Trump on NYT

The feud between Donald Trump and the mainstream media started back during the start of the 2016 presidential election and has only picked up steam over the last three years.

One of the president's top targets has been the New York Times, who created another headache for the administration in a report earlier this week. On Monday, the Nyt reported that a Ukrainian businessman Victor Pinchuk donated $150,000 to the Trump Foundation back in 2015 in exchange for the former host of "The Apprentice" to make a video appearance at a conference in the Ukraine.

In response, Donald Trump ripped into the New York Times during a tweet on April 11. "The Failing New York Times wrote another phony story," Trump tweeted, claiming that "It was political pundit Doug Schoen, not a Ukrainian businessman, who asked me to do a short speech by phone (Skype), hosted by Doug, in Ukraine." "I was very positive about Ukraine-another negative to the Fake Russia C story!" Trump noted.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump expanded his criticism of the "fake news," highlighting several issues dealing with trade with China, as well as issues with Syria and North Korea.

Trump corrected

Not long after Donald Trump fired off his angry tweet at the New York Times, the paper took to Twitter to fact-check the president, while releasing the full report to the public so they can read for themselves.

"Our story is accurate and we stand by it," the offical New York Times Communications Twitter account posted, before providing a link the story in question written by Maggie Haberman and Michael S. Schmidt.

Maggie Haberman also responded to Trump on her own Twitter account adding, "Political pundit Doug Schoen, who works for that Ukrainian businessman, arranged the speech our story says." Schmidt then tweeted a similar sediment by quoting from the report in question.

As of press time, neither Trump nor the White House have issued a response to the New York Times following their rebuttal.
