President Donald Trump fired off a critical tweet after what he saw as "fake news" from cable news channel Fox News on Monday.

The president appeared to be displeased at the recent Fox News poll that showed the top Democratic presidential contenders beating him in a hypothetical head-to-head competition.

"@FoxNews Polls are always bad for me. They were against Crooked Hillary also. Something weird going on at Fox," he tweeted.

"For the record, I didn't spend 30 hours with @abcnews, but rather a tiny fraction of that. More Fake News @BretBaier," he added.

The poll had the president losing to former Vice President Joe Biden by a 10-point differential. Biden is currently the front-runner in the campaign to obtain the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

In the same poll, 50 percent of respondents said they would be "displeased" or "scared" if the president won re-election in 2020.

Earlier on Monday, the president decried polling in general.

"Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew," he tweeted, referring to the large cohort of Democratic presidential candidates.

"We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that," he added.

Trump also criticized Fox News in April when they aired a town hall event with socialist presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). The president complained that his supporters were kept out of the event.

"What's with Fox News?" he tweeted.
