"It is not 'freedom of the press' when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false!" the Republican presidential nominee tweeted Sunday afternoon.

 

 

"I am not only fighting Crooked Hillary, I am fighting the dishonest and corrupt media and her government protection process. People get it!" he added.

Trump has launched an all-out assault on the media after a New York Times article published Saturday painted Trump as "sullen and erratic."

“He veers from barking at members of his staff to grumbling about how he was better off following his own instincts during the primaries and suggesting he should not have heeded their calls for change,” the story reported, adding that the billionaire “broods about his souring relationship with the news media.”

Earlier Sunday, Trump blasted the Times, calling its story a work of fiction.
