President Trump on Tuesday attacked the media, saying reporters “hate” his use of social media and criticizing election analysts who predicted he would lose.

"The FAKE MSM is working so hard trying to get me not to use Social Media. They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out,” Trump tweeted.

"Sorry folks, but if I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH," he added shortly after.

Trump often tweets his criticism of the media, decrying coverage of the investigations into Russian election interference as "fake news."


Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that no one in the White House vets Trump’s tweets. Trump sent out a series of tweets Sunday and Monday criticizing the mayor of London after a terror attack in the city, and touting his travel ban on individuals from six majority-Muslim countries. 

"I think social media for the president is extremely important. It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications," Sanders said.
