You don't need us to tell you how much Donald Trump hates CNN and all their 'Fake News.'

The President regularly shares his thoughts about the news network who he feels pedals incorrect anti-Trump lines to discredit him.

Here are a few examples of tweets that Trump has posted from just this year about CNN.

Knowing this, it won't surprise you to learn that Trump doesn't follow CNN on Twitter.

In fact, he only follows 45 accounts and the only news network he follows is unsurprisingly Fox.

Yet something strange happened earlier today, which many would have previously dismissed as unthinkable.

Yes, that's right, Donald Trump followed CNN on Twitter as confirmed by the Twitter bot, Trump Alert.

Shock horror!

Sadly it didn't last long and, after just one hour, Trump's account decided to unfollow CNN.

Given Trump's known hatred of CNN, this little bit of news grabbed people's attention on Twitter who couldn't resist making a few jokes.

Perhaps he didn't like that the number of accounts he had been following exceeded the nice round figure of 45 (is it a reference to his status as the 45th President of the United States?) - or perhaps the President just wanted to toll CNN as his next tweet was about his favourite subject; 'fake news.'
