President Donald Trump Wednesday resumed his attacks on the media, saying it has "never been more dishonest than it is today."

In a series of tweets, he cheered on Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann for filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against The Washington Post and declared The New York Times "a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!".

"Stories are written that have absolutely no basis in fact," Trump said in his first tweet. "The writers don’t even call asking for verification. They are totally out of control. Sadly, I kept many of them in business. In six years, they all go BUST!"

The attack follows a report from The New York Times that he'd asked former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to put Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York,  in charge of investigating his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Trump Tuesday told reporters that "there’s a lot of fake news out there.”

Also on Wednesday, the president tweeted his support for Sandmann, quoting language in the lawsuit that the Post had "'ignored basic journalistic standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump.' Covington student suing WAPO. Go get them Nick. Fake News!"

The teen has sued the Post for $250 million in damages, saying the paper had falsely accused him of racist acts and of instigating a confrontation with a Native American activist Nathan Phillips in an incident at the Lincoln Memorial.
