U.S. President Donald Trump on 28 may lambasted the 'fake' media for 'demeaning' his use of social media alleging that they don't want the people to know the 'real story'.

"The Fake News Media works hard at disparaging & demeaning my use of social media because they don't want America to hear the real story!," tweeted Trump.

The President has been an avid Twitter user who has repeatedly used the platform for criticising the media and putting his views forward.
The latest tirade comes as soon as the President returned from his nine-day long foreign trip.

In another tweet he boasted about his tax reforms submitted in the budget, saying it would benefit all.

"The massive TAX CUTS/REFORM that I have submitted is moving along in the process very well, actually ahead of schedule. Big benefits to all!"

"I suggest that we add more dollars to Healthcare and make it the best anywhere. ObamaCare is dead - the Republicans will do much better!," he added.
Earlier in the day, he blasted the media for many of the leaks coming out of the White House that he believes are made up.

In a series of tweets, Trump focused on news reports that include the words "sources say."

"It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media," the president tweeted on 28 may.

"Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media, and they don't mention names...it is very possible that those sources don't exsist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!"
