President Trump tweeted Saturday that he wanted to team up to fight "fake news" with Polish President Andrzej Duda

"We will fight the #FakeNews with you!" Trump tweeted.  

The president had retweeted Duda, who blasted what he said were reports that his wife snubbed Trump during a handshake earlier this week ahead of the Group of 20 summit in Germany.

“Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump @POTUS after a great visit. Let's FIGHT FAKE NEWS,” Duda tweeted.

The tweets come after Trump met with Duda in Warsaw ahead of the G-20 summit.

Trump, who has ramped up his rhetoric against the media in recent days, took the opportunity to slam CNN during a joint press conference with Duda on Thursday.

"They've been covering me in a very dishonest way. ... What CNN, and others, NBC is equally is bad, despite the fact that I made them a fortune with 'The Apprentice,' but they forgot that," the president said.
