President Donald Trump continued his attacks on the media Monday in the wake of the massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue and the arrest of a man suspected of sending pipe bombs to several key Democrats, blaming the "fake news media" for the nation's anger and calling the media the "true enemy of the people."

"There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news," Trump said on Twitter early Monday. "The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame...of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!"

His Monday tweets echoed one he posted late Sunday, when he commented that the "Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country. Actually, it is their Fake & Dishonest reporting which is causing problems far greater than they understand!"

NBC News' Chuck Todd Monday criticized Trump for his attacks on the media, calling on him to instead set an example for Americans.

"If you actually believe media is the problem then the last thing one should do is respond with your own hate and anger," he tweeted. "Try leading; try setting an example; Try living by the mantra 'two wrongs don’t make a right.' But then that would mean cutting back on stoking the division."
