On Sunday, President Donald Trump capped off Father’s Day by accusing the FBI of providing too much information to the media.

“Why was the FBI giving so much information to the Fake News Media. They are not supposed to be doing that, and knowing the enemy of the people Fake News, they put their own spin on it – truth doesn’t matter to them!” Trump wrote.

It is unclear what exactly prompted Trump’s outburst although Trump has regularly been hostile to the press both on Twitter and in-person.

However, it is not the first time Trump has blasted the media as the nation’s enemy.

“The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” Trump wrote in February 2017.

That February tweet was actually an edit of a prior tweet — which was swiftly deleted — that also called the media “sick.”
