President Donald Trump claims he doesn’t actually like using social media but only uses Twitter to expose what he calls “fake news” in a Saturday tweet.
“I use Social Media not because I like to, but because it is the only way to fight a VERY dishonest and unfair ‘press,’ now often referred to as Fake News Media. Phony and non-existent ‘sources’ are being used more often than ever. Many stories & reports a pure fiction!” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s Twitter account has been touted as “a force, a newsmaker, an agitator, an American political phenomenon,” by Politico and has “shocked and traumatized those individuals on the receiving end,” of his tweets.
Trump has called out the “fake news media” many times over the past year, including outlets like CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, and The New York Times.
