"I cannot believe the level of dishonesty in the media. It is totally out of control, but we are winning!" Trump wrote.

Trump did say in another tweet that he was happy with "Fox & Friends," a morning show on Fox News that he is known to watch.

The White House and Trump supporters have spent days attacking Cohen's reputation, pointing to revelations that Cohen did seek a pardon through lawyers after telling Congress he had never done so.

Cohen is currently set to begin a three-year prison sentence for financial crimes and campaign finance violations.

Cohen testified publicly before the House Oversight and Reform Committee last week, calling his former boss a "racist" and a "con man" in prepared remarks to lawmakers while answering questions from Democrats that appeared to open the door to further congressional investigations of the president's finances.

Top Democrats have also suggested that evidence already exists that Trump's campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election, an assertion Trump battled in a similar message Sunday night.

"Presidential Harassment by 'crazed' Democrats at the highest level in the history of our Country," Trump wrote Sunday. "Likewise, the most vicious and corrupt Mainstream Media that any president has ever had to endure - Yet the most successful first two years for any President. We are WINNING big, the envy of the WORLD, but just think what it could be?"

Trump frequently feuds with the media, which he views as unfairly covering his White House and administration.
