After his 12-day trip to Asia, US President Donald Trump returned to the White House on Wednesday with war (of the social media kind) on his mind.

Trump took to Twitter to slam CNN and The New York Times.

He described the CNN as “bad” and “losers” saying:

CNN has been criticizing Trump since the first day he decided to run for President.

While criticizing CNN, Trump praised “Fox and Friends” and promoted Fox News’s morning show by announcing that its hosts will be talking about his “successful” trip abroad on their show.

On the other hand, he posted another tweet describing The New York Times newspaper’s views of foreign police as “Naive.”

“The failing @nytimes hates the fact that I have developed a great relationship with World leaders like Xi Jinping, President of China,” He said. “They should realize that these relationships are a good thing, not a bad thing. The U.S. is being respected again. Watch Trade!”

During his 12-day trip to Asia, Trump visited Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines, where he discussed trade issues and encouraged the countries to come together against the threat posed by North Korea.
