President Trump is again criticizing CNN - and the network is tweeting back

Former FBI Director James Comey took a shot at his former boss on Saturday after President Donald Trump fired at his own arch nemesis, CNN. "The outside world does not see the truth from them!" the president tweeted.

In a tweet responding to Trump's latest criticisms of CNN International, the network's communications department wrote, "It's not CNN's job to represent the U.S to the world".

Trump's retweet included a link to a list of his accomplishments on the MAGAPill website, which went offline shortly after the president tweeted about it.

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.

This job can be risky. Their reporting prompted the United Nations to open an investigation into the matter. Until now it was not possible for me to conceive of an American President capable of such an outrageous assault on truth, a free press or the first amendment.

Trump also sent off the tweet on the same day that Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law requiring foreign media outlets in his country to be registered as foreign agents. As Thomas Jefferson said, it "cannot be limited without being lost".

Later on, media critic David Zurawik said that Avlon was "absolutely right" and that the president would just prefer to go to his "Twitter pals" at Fox News like "Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham".
