President Trump took to Twitter Monday morning to comment on a wide range of topics, including how well the economy has done since he took office and arguing that the media has gone beyond being “fake" and is now "corrupt."

“Since my election, many trillions of dollars of worth has been created for our Country, and the Stock Market is up over 50%,” he said. “If you followed the advice of the Failing New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman, you’d be doing VERY poorly - you’d be angry and hurt. He never got it!”

Next, he turned his attention to labor unions. 

“Just watched AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on @FoxNews and thought to myself how different he is on TV than he is when he is with me at the White House," the president wrote. "Likes what we are doing until the cameras go on. We got robbed on Trade and everything else while his Dems just sat back.... and watched. NAFTA is the worst Trade Deal ever made - terrible for labor - and Richard let it stand. No wonder unions are losing so much. The workers will vote for me in 2020 (lowest unemployment, most jobs ever), and should stop paying exorbitant $Dues, not worth it!”

He also took a swipe at Democrats for becoming the “Party of the Squad.”

"The Amazon Washington Post did a story that I brought racist attacks against the “Squad.” No, they brought racist attacks against our Nation. All I do is call them out for the horrible things they have said. The Democrats have become the Party of the Squad!"

Trump then turned to one of his usual targets: the media.

“The LameStream Media has gone totally CRAZY!" he said. "They write whatever they want, seldom have sources (even though they say they do), never do “fact checking” anymore, and are only looking for the “kill.” They take good news and make it bad. They are now beyond Fake, they are Corrupt.. The good news is that we are winning. Our real opponent is not the Democrats, or the dwindling number of Republicans that lost their way and got left behind, our primary opponent is the Fake News Media. In the history of our Country, they have never been so bad!"

Aside from tweeting about these issues, the president was also busy this morning providing updates about Hurricane Dorian and the tragic boat fire near Santa Cruz Island, where there are at least 34 people missing.
