President Donald Trump said he will continue to use his Twitter account to rebuke news media outlets and that his White House aides encourage his Twitter activities, in an interview Wednesday on the Fox News program “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Nobody in history has gotten more dishonest media than I have gotten…Take a look at CNN. It’s a complete hit job…No matter what you do, no matter how good or how great it is, they don’t report it in a positive fashion,” Trump told Tucker Carlson, according to Washington Times. He added that if the media does not help “spreading my words accurately as it was meant,” he would reach out to the American people himself.

Trump has repeatedly referred to several news outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, NBC News and ABC News as “fake news” on Twitter and in other media appearances. Trump’s tweets such as those that slam news outlets and others such as his claims about former President Barack Obama wiretapping the Trump Tower have been criticized for their lack of evidence. Since assuming office, he has also had a few notable Twitter feuds.

Trump has called Hollywood icon Meryl Streep overrated, taken shots at Arnold Schwarzenegger for the television ratings of his show "The New Celebrity Apprentice." And on Wednesday morning, Trump began a feud with rapper Snoop Dogg. Speaking to Carlson during the interview aired Wednesday night, Trump suggested that these trends may continue.

“A lot of the time my staff comes to me and says, ‘Can you do a tweet on this or that because it’s not being shown correctly?’” Trump said, adding that occasionally, he asks his staff to review a tweet before he sends it out. However, he did not say if his staff ever intervened and attempted to stop him from tweeting.

However, an earlier report from Politico suggested contrarily that the White House staff had devised strategies to ensure "that his personal media consumption includes a steady stream of praise." The report also cited an anonymous former campaign official who said that Trump's communications director used alternative media such as Breitbart, Washington Examiner, Infowars and the Daily Caller to show Trump's positive coverage and added that those stories would then be shared by campaign officials with large numbers of Twitter followers.

"If candidate Trump was upset about unfair coverage, it was productive to show him that he was getting fair coverage from outlets that were persuadable. ... The same media that our base digests and prefers is going to be the base for his support. I would assume the president would like to see positive and preferential treatment from those outlets and that would help the operation overall," former Communications Director Sam Nunberg told Politico.

A USA Today/Suffolk University poll that spoke to 100 respondents suggested last week that a majority of Americans feel that Trump should decrease (or stop entirely) his use of personal social media for Twitter wars and petty feuds with celebrities and elected officials while serving as the American president.
