Trump frequently refers to CNN as "fake news" on Twitter.
But the network, or at least its public relations department, isn't remaining silent.
CNN hit back at Donald Trump after the president of the United States stated that the news network insufficiently represents the United States.
"The outside world does not see the truth from them!" he wrote. However, examples of the pro-Trump website's work can still be seen on its Twitter account. Until now it was not possible for me to conceive of an American President capable of such an outrageous assault on truth, a free press or the first amendment.

"Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that can not be limited without being lost", Comey tweeted Saturday evening along with a picture of the Capitol.
According to the reports, Trump's remarks come at a significant time for the media outlet, whose parent company Time Warner is merging with AT&T in an $85 billion deal. Well with US President's Twitter habits, there is no tiresome day on the social media. Given the context, Trump's attack on CNN seems particularly timely.
Sure, Fox News might still be the most watched news network in America - but the responses to the president's attack on CNN show that many deeply respect the worldwide reporting delivered by the news channel.
CNN more adheres to the policy of the democratic party and often criticized trump during the race.
