As you can see in the tweet above, the president is citing interest that "is far greater than anyone could have anticipated" as a possible reason for the date change.

Late-night comedians are desperately competing for President Donald Trump's "Fake News Media" awards by using the same tactic of posting "for your consideration" ads.

"I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o'clock", Trump wrote.

"Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration".

He announced initially announced the awards last Tuesday in a Tweet.

Trump has regularly slammed the coverage of his campaign and time in the White House.

Other parts of the book described how White House staff and the President's own family are forced to treat Mr Trump like a "child", that he often repeats himself and that the people around him frequently question his suitability for the role.

Trevor Noah's "Daily Show" also has a for-your-consideration graphic on its Twitter feed.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah placed a full-page advert in the New York Times on Friday featuring quotes from negative reviews created to appeal to Trump. They call the show "monotonous ... liberal dogma", "a fake news show" and "political propaganda disguised as entertainment" respectively.

Stephen Colbert also got in on the act, purchasing a billboard in Times Square to make sure he would not get snubbed.

It is unclear how Mr Trump's awards will be judged.
