US President Donald Trump has tweeted that the "fake news media" is the "opposition party," while calling it "very bad" for the US. In true Trump style, he followed that up by saying "we are winning" the fight.
Trump has long rallied against so-called "fake news," branding some of America's largest media outlets, including CNN and The New York Times, as such.
His tweet comes amid reports that almost 343 news outlets will be publishing coordinated editorials on Thursday which denounce the US president's "dirty war" on the press. The movement was initially pushed by the Boston Globe.
