In the tweet, the president once again decries CNN as fake news, this time arguing that CNN International "represents our Nation to the world very poorly".

According to the leader of the executive branch, "the outside world does not see the truth from them!"

In response, CNN Communications tweeted, "It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world".

But Trump's latest tweet in his ongoing feud with CNN could give attorneys the ammunition they need to prove his Justice Department just wants to stop the merger because the president doesn't like the network, Eisen suggests.

From CNN's Twitter account, the organization clarified their position as an enterprise by stating that their "job is to report the news", and Trump's job is to represent the United States to the rest of the globe, not CNN.

Naturally, this quickly gained attention and criticism, as one user claimed that Fox News was only much more important for Trump's "narrative". During his recent Asia trip, he tweeted that he was "forced to" watch "fake" CNN, claiming that he has not done so in months. "Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake".

CNN more adheres to the policy of the democratic party and often criticized trump during the race. CNN's Christiane Amanpour would know - she tweeted a video of herself running away from the sound of bullets while reporting overseas.

CNN global was prompt in replying back.

Former presidential candidate Evan McMullin noted that Trump is lending a hand to authoritarian figures by attacking a network like CNN International.

"'Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that can not be limited without being lost.' - Thomas Jefferson, Jan. 28, 1786", he tweeted. Well with US President's Twitter habits, there is no boring day on the social media.

Joe Scarborough ignored the president's message and instead thanked CNN for sending the message that America "still has a vibrant, free press". Others went after him for "doing advertisements for Fox News".
