Media Is "Dishonest" Says Trump

Media Is

Trump holds his first solo press conference as president.

Mr Trump insisted that his team was running "like a fine-tuned machine" and lampooned the mainstream media that he said was peddling "fake news". "I see [news] stories of chaos, chaos, yet it is the exact opposite".

On the travel ban: "We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban, but we had a bad court".

"Just so you understand, we had a totally divided country for eight years and long before that", he said in response to a question from MSNBC's Kristen Welker.

He also said that his approval rating is at 55 percent and climbing and shot down a number of polls which show him with a historically low approval rating for a new president.

"The tone is such hatred", Trump said.

"In so doing, the President will clear the way for immediately protecting the country rather than pursuing further, potentially time-consuming litigation", the Justice Department said in its filing.

Trump also used his almost half-hour introductory statement to take a stinging shot at the press corps.

The "press is out of control". "I'm here again to take my message straight to the people".

"To be honest, I inherited a mess - at home and overseas - a mess", said the president, who has served for less than a month, adding that "ISIS has spread like cancer". "It's a mess at home and overseas". "Another mess I inherited".

"And we haven't even started the big work that starts early next week".

Speaking at a news conference today, he said: "The media is trying to attack our administration because they know we are following through on pledges we made and they're not happy about it".

Trump rejected a New York Times report that members of the president's inner circle had frequent communication with Russian officials, claiming that he had no knowledge to suggest the conversations took place.

He repeatedly denied having links with Russian Federation, a claim he deemed "fake news".

To an African-American reporter: "Are they friends of yours?" when she asked about the Congressional Black Caucus.
