Donald Trump was up early on Labor Day to remind the media that he’s not a fan.
The President of the United States doubled down on his attacks on the fourth estate, going as far as to upgrade his view from “fake” to “corrupt”.

His latest attacks surround fact checking and sources and although he wasn’t specific about which publications had brought this particular ire, it did follow a slam against The Washington Post for a story about “The Squad”.
Before heading out to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, and as a massive hurricane heads towards the east coast of the country, the President was busy on his favorite social media site, also attacking FBI director James Comey and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, while also retweeting plenty of weather updates.
….The good news is that we are winning. Our real opponent is not the Democrats, or the dwindling number of Republicans that lost their way and got left behind, our primary opponent is the Fake News Media. In the history of our Country, they have never been so bad!
