President Trump: There should be a contest about which network is 'most dishonest'

On his first morning back in Washington, President Trump suggested Monday that a contest may be in order to determine which news network is the “most dishonest” in its coverage of him.

“Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!” he said in the tweet.

Left out of his challenge: Fox News, the network most likely to have favorable news coverage of his administration.

The tweet, akin to the media attacks he's made since before taking office, seemed to build off a statement he made this weekend about the importance of the conservative news network in America. In that Saturday tweet, he also insisted that CNN was representing the United States “poorly” to the world.

“The outside world does not see the truth about them,” he said.

CNN replied in kind.

On Monday, Trump also criticized MSNBC's Morning Joe.
