President Donald Trump lashed out again at the news media, characterizing "fake news" as the country's "greatest enemy."

Trump appeared to be upset over the way that his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was reported on NBC and CNN.

While some outlets provided round-the-clock coverage and characterized the meeting as historic, there also was extensive scrutiny of the joint statement the two signed after their agreement and whether it represented a departure at past efforts at trying to get North Korea to end its nuclear program.

Trump's characterization of "fake news" as the country's "biggest enemy" is similar to his description of the media as the "enemy of the American people."

The latter came in a tweet that he sent on Feb. 17, when he wrote that "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"

Some Republicans on Capitol Hill criticized the tweet, and news organizations and First Amendment groups pushed back in response.
