Trump On Media: ‘Beyond Fake, They Are Corrupt’

President Trump on Monday lashed out at the news media and the Democratic party, two of his favorite targets, in a set of Labor Day morning tweets, reports The Hill.

"The Amazon Washington Post did a story that I brought racist attacks against the “Squad.” No, they brought racist attacks against our Nation," he first tweeted.

"All I do is call them out for the horrible things they have said. The Democrats have become the Party of the Squad!"

Trump seemed to be referring to an article published Sunday in the Washington Post that detailed the president's summer.

Among other incidents from the summer, the report covered Trump's attacks on Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), a group of lawmakers known as "The Squad."

"Trump leveled racist attacks against four congresswomen of color dubbed “the Squad,” " the Post's report reads.

Trump frequently targets both the Post and its owner, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, claiming that the newspaper is a lobbying arm for the technology and retail giant.

The president continued his attacks on the media in two follow-up tweets.
