Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio blasted the media for its coverage of President Donald Trump throughout his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Twitter Tuesday.

Rubio criticized the media for praising former President Barack Obama’s actions overseas during his presidency, but scrutinizing Trump before and after his meeting with Kim in Singapore, where the two leaders took steps toward decreasing tensions on the Korean peninsula, signing a joint statement Tuesday.

The Florida Republican pointed out the fact that in 2017, the media was criticizing Trump for leading the U.S. into a possible war with North Korea, but are now attacking him for being “too quick for peace” after he met with Kim.

Trump and Kim signed a “comprehensive” agreement promising North Korea better relations as well as giving them security guarantees. In return, North Korea has committed to the “denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” Trump said after his meeting with Kim.
