President Trump blasted out a multitude of Twitter posts throughout the day on Monday, batting down several negative media reports.

In one set of tweets, the president said MNSBC is even worse than CNN.  He wrote:

As bad as @CNN is, Comcast MSNBC is worse. Their ratings are also way down because they have lost all credibility. I believe their stories about me are not 93% negative, but actually 100% negative. They are incapable of saying anything positive, despite all of the great things…

..that this Administration has done. They don’t talk about the great economy, the big tax and regulation cuts, the rebuilding of the Military, “Choice” at our VA, our Vets, Judges and Supreme Court Justices, the Border Wall going up, lowest crime numbers, 2nd A, and so much more!

The president blasted the media for failing to highlight the successes achieved by his administration.  He tweeted:

The Trump Administration has achieved more in the first 2 1/2 years of its existence than perhaps any administration in the history of our Country. We get ZERO media credit for what we have done, and are doing, but the people know, and that’s all that is important!

President Trump also hit back on a report about the meeting for peace talks which he had scheduled – and then cancelled – with Taliban leaders and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, which was to be held at Camp David.

Trump cancelled the meeting after the Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack in Kabul which killed a U.S. soldier.  CNN reported that Vice President Pence and National Security Adviser John Bolton objected to the meeting. President Trump tweeted on Monday:

A lot of Fake News is being reported that I overruled the VP and various advisers on a potential Camp David meeting with the Taliban. This Story is False! I always think it is good to meet and talk, but in this case I decided not to. The Dishonest Media likes to create…

…the look of turmoil in the White House, of which there is none. I view much of the media as simply an arm of the Democrat Party. They are corrupt, and they are extremely upset at how well our Country is doing under MY Leadership, including…

…the Economy, where there is NO Recession, much to the regret of the LameStream Media! They are working overtime to help the Democrats win in 2020, but that will NEVER HAPPEN, Americans are too smart!

In another tweet, Trump added:

We have been serving as policemen in Afghanistan, and that was not meant to be the job of our Great Soldiers, the finest on earth. Over the last four days, we have been hitting our Enemy harder than at any time in the last ten years!
