President Donald Trump has yet against waged a Twitter attack on CNN, baselessly claiming that the network "doesn't do great in the United States" and that they have a "powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way."

In two tweets on Monday afternoon, Trump said that "something has to be done" and suggested the United States start "our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!"

Many on Twitter were quick to point out that there is already a "worldwide network" in the form of the U.S. Agency for Global Media, an independent agency of the United States government that touts its mission as to "inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy."

Earlier this month, the White House was embroiled in much controversy when it revoked CNN reporter Jim Acosta's press pass after a press conference on Nov. 7, during which the reporter and Trump shared a contentious exchange. Amid the heated discussion, a White House intern attempted to grab the microphone from the Acosta. A sped-up version of this moment was later proliferated by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, suggesting Acosta used force against the intern.

CNN then sued the Trump administration for violating the First Amendment rights of both the network and its reporter. Acosta's pass was later reinstated and CNN dropped the suit.

Last month, Trump slammed the "fake news media" as the "true enemy of the people" just five days after a pipe bomb was sent to CNN. The president claimed in a tweet that "inaccurate" reporting helped cause the "great anger in our country."

"The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly," he tweeted. "Fake News Must End!"
