Trump rips CNN again, but this time, CNN blasted him right back

Since Trump assumed the office, USA media, including CNN, have accused the U.S. president's team of having alleged ties to the Kremlin.

Earlier in the day, Trump blasted CNN and its worldwide arm in a tweet, accusing the network of spreading "fake" news and representing the U.S.

Shortly before Donald Trump retweeted the link to MAGAPill's list of his accomplishments, CNN responded to his tweet about its worldwide division being "a major source of (Fake) news". And some on Twitter didn't think Trump's tweet was an accident.

"'Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that can not be limited without being lost.' - Thomas Jefferson, Jan. 28, 1786", he tweeted.

Many, including some CNN reporters and analysts such as Christiane Amanpour and Jake Tapper, also did not sit silent, and criticized Trump for undermining the work of foreign correspondents in war zones around the world. Norm Eisen, a former chief White House ethics lawyer, suggested that the president's words might hurt his Justice Department's legal case against the AT&T merger with CNN's parent company, Time Warner Inc.

As of Saturday evening, CNN's response had more tweets than Trump's attack.

Comey, who began tweeting under a pseudonym, has been somewhat active on the social media platform within the past month.

Trump tweeted that CNN "represent [s] our Nation to the WORLD very poorly".
