President Trump chose not to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, due to the ongoing government shutdown. Tuesday the president slammed the media for criticizing him for not attending the event, tweeting:

Last time I went to Davos, the Fake News said I should not go there. This year, because of the Shutdown, I decided not to go, and the Fake News said I should be there. The fact is that the people understand the media better than the media understands them!

After several explosive exchanges with reporters, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders now rarely holds a press conference in the White House briefing room. The lack of press briefings has now been receiving criticism. President Trump tweeted Tuesday that he told Sanders to not bother, due to the rude reporters. He tweeted:

The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the “podium” much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular certain members of the press. I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!

Monday night, Fox News published a story based on transcripts from a congressional hearing in October, revealing that James Baker, a former top FBI lawyer, “acknowledged he was personally involved in the warrant application to surveil then-Trump campaign aide Carter Page and confirmed other “unusual” steps taken in the FBI’s Russia probe in 2016.”

President Trump tweeted in response:

Former FBI top lawyer James Baker just admitted involvement in FISA Warrant and further admitted there were IRREGULARITIES in the way the Russia probe was handled. They relied heavily on the unverified Trump “Dossier” paid for by the DNC & Clinton Campaign, & funded through a…

…big Crooked Hillary law firm, represented by her lawyer Michael Sussmann (do you believe this?) who worked Baker hard & gave him Oppo Research for “a Russia probe.” This meeting, now exposed, is the subject of Senate inquiries and much more. An Unconstitutional Hoax. @FoxNews

In another Twitter post on Tuesday, the president tweeted about the US economy:

The United States has a great economic story to tell. Number one in the World, by far!
