President Donald Trump launched a fresh attack Sunday on what he calls the “fake news” media, but offered a ray of hope for America, saying the “hatred and dissension” in the nation “will heal” at some point.

In a series of tweets, Trump initially touted his recent success in North Korea, while blasting American media for ignoring the “wonderful facts.”

“There hasn’t been a missile or rocket fired in 9 months in North Korea, there have been no nuclear tests and we got back our hostages,” Trump said. “Who knows how it will all turn out in the end, but why isn’t the Fake News talking about these wonderful facts? Because it is FAKE NEWS!”

He continued with a preview of his forthcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but immediately veered into serious criticism of the media and Democrats:

“Heading to Helsinki, Finland – looking forward to meeting with President Putin tomorrow. Unfortunately, no matter how well I do at the Summit, if I was given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all of the sins and evils committed by Russia over the years, I would return to criticism that it wasn’t good enough – that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition! Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all the Dems know how to do is resist and obstruct!”

The president concluded his flurry of messages, noting: “This is why there is such hatred and dissension in our country – but at some point, it will heal!”
