A record stock market, jobs growth, tougher border security and "the Fake News Russian collusion story" had bound his supporters closer together, he argued.

Trump's early-morning tweets were sent from his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., where the commander in chief is spending most of the next two weeks while the White House undergoes renovations.

"Going to NY next week for more meetings", Trump added. By one account Trump has spent almost 25 per cent of his time in office outside Washington, typically on one of his properties. "Look at rallies in Penn, Iowa, Ohio and West Virginia", he continued in his tweetstorm.

He added: "Hard to believe that with 24/7 #Fake News on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYTIMES & WAPO, the Trump base is getting stronger!"

President Donald Trump, now on a 17-day vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, spent his Monday morning posting a tirade against his usual target, the "24/7 fake news", criticizing the "failing" New York Times.

Afternoon and Evening Storms
It's a mild and muggy start this morning and we are already seeing showers and down pours pushing through parts of the region. Models continue to show a major warm up from low 60s at 11am into the 70s for many as a warm front moves through.

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released last week, just 33 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president. Notably, support among white voters without a college degree - a key Trump demographic - had fallen off as well. That's a 10-point drop over June when 53 percent approved of Trump's job performance.

The president said "fake news" is responsible for the size of his base. "Just 6 months in office, Trump is getting into dangerously low territory in key swing states", Firehouse partner Alex Conant tells Axios.

The president also appeared to have watched an appearance by Democrat Sen.

While claiming political support among Republican voters, Trump also attacked Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal in a series of tweets after the CT senator appeared on CNN and said "there is no minimizing or underestimating that attack by the Russians" on last year's presidential election, leading to the current investigations.

In 2010, Blumenthal apologized for repeatedly claiming he had served in Vietnam after the New York Times reported he obtained at least five military deferments between 1965 and 1970 to avoid going to war.
