President Donald Trump tweeted his displeasure with "fake news" on Sunday as he neared the end of what he had called his "working vacation," The Hill reported.

"Heading back to Washington after working hard and watching some of the worst and most dishonest Fake News reporting I have ever seen!" Trump tweeted.

The president's "working vacation" turned out to be amply eventful as he dismissed chief strategist Steve Bannon, responded to the violent protests that took place last weekend in Charlottesville, Va., and contended with North Korea's continued threat involving their nuclear weapons program.

Bannon was let go on Friday following reports of infighting with other White House staff. He returned to his previous position as head of conservative news website Breitbart.

In Charlottesville, one woman was killed when an alt-right activist drove his car into leftist protesters. Trump was soundly criticized for not providing a harsh enough response to the white supremacists' participation in the event. A similar protest took place Saturday in Boston, but there were no significant reports of violence.

And, early in Trump's vacation he issued a warning to North Korea promising "fire and fury" if they followed through on their threat to attack the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam.
