President Trump was unsatisfied with the media response to his statement made today about the heinous Charlottesville attack in Virginia. He registered his anger directly to his supporters via his Twitter account.

"Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied," he tweeted Monday.

He added, "truly bad people!"

The president was assailed on all sides for what some said was a tepid response to the attack. His statement condemned the violence "on both sides," making some criticize him for equating the victims of the attack with the attacker, who had white nationalist sympathies.

Trump even took a swipe at CNN's Jim Acosta after the press briefing Monday for demanding of him to answer more questions.

“Can we ask you some more questions?” Acosta added.

“It doesn’t bother me at all, but I like real news, not fake news,” he responded while pointing his finger at Acosta, “you’re fake news.” The president walked away without taking further questions.
