President Trump on Wednesday hit at the media and defended his record by saying he is just trying to make America great again.

“After reading the false reporting and even ferocious anger in some dying magazines, it makes me wonder, WHY?” Trump tweeted. “All I want to do is #MAGA!”

Trump frequently goes after media outlets, referring to some critical networks and stories as “fake news.”

During a rally earlier this month in Arizona, Trump accused the media of “trying to take away our history and our heritage” through coverage of efforts to remove monuments to the Confederacy. 


“For the most part honestly, these are really, really dishonest people, they’re bad people,” Trump said of the media at the rally in Phoenix. “I really think they don’t like our country, I really believe that.”

Trump’s comments Wednesday come a day after he visited Texas to observe the recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey.

During his visit, Trump surveyed damage from the devastating floods that displaced thousands of people in the region.

He also praised the size of the crowd gathered to see him during his visit to Corpus Christi.

“What a crowd, what a turnout,” Trump said to a crowd in the area.
