Taking a break from his recent trend of tweeting Fox News clips, Donald Trump has renewed his attack on “Fake News” in his latest Twitter tantrum.

As well as attacking the “corrupt media”, Trump also took aim at Facebook, Google and Twitter which he said are also “on the side of Radical Left Democrats”.

It’s not clear what has triggered these attacks, but it comes after Trump accused the media of trying to blame him for the New Zealand mass shooting in a tweet on Monday.

In his first tweet the following day he wrote:

The Fake News Media has NEVER been more Dishonest or Corrupt than it is right now.

There has never been a time like this in American History.

Very exciting but also, very sad! Fake News is the absolute Enemy of the People and our Country itself!

Then two hours later, Trump added:

Facebook, Google and Twitter, not to mention the Corrupt Media, are sooo on the side of the Radical Left Democrats. But fear not, we will win anyway, just like we did before! #MAGA

Trump has repeatedly complained that big tech platforms treat him unfairly.

And he previously accused Twitter of restricting the visibility of prominent US Republicans, without any providing evidence.

Trump has also been drawn into a Twitter spat with the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway who has questioned the president’s health.

He retweeted a message from his 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, who suggested that George Conway is "jealous" of his wife's success – with Trump adding that Conway was a “total loser”.

But Conway quickly hit back at Trump, mocking him for ensuring that "millions of more people are going to learn about narcissistic personality disorder".

Last week, Conway posted a series of tweets asking whether a “serious inquiry” needs to be made into Trump's mental state.

But on Monday, Kellyanne Conway said she doesn't share her husband's concerns about Trump.

Even for Trump, the president has been particularly active on Twitter over the last few days, attacking a range of targets including John McCain, Robert Mueller and Saturday Night Live.

Never a dull moment. Sigh.
