President Donald Trump early Wednesday complained that CNN and MSNBC were refusing to talk about his "record-setting" numbers of voters in New Hampshire and Iowa and slammed both networks as being "fake news." 

"Fake News @CNN and MSDNC have not surprisingly refused to talk about my record setting number of voters in New Hampshire (and in Iowa). That’s why they are poorly rated Fake News! I will win both states in November," the president tweeted.

Trump took New Hampshire's Republican primary with 85.5% of the vote while facing minimal opposition, reports The New York Times and The Associated Press, reporting after 87% of the vote was tallied. His closest listed competition, former Mass. Gov. Bill Weld, got 9.2%. 

The Hill reports that late President Ronald Reagan had set the modern historical high for an incumbent president in 1984, when he took 86.4% in 1984. 

Fox News' "Fox and Friends" reported Wednesday that Trump had netted 120,476 votes in the New Hampshire race, eclipsing numbers tallied by former Presidents Barack Obama, at 49,080 in 2012; George W. Bush, 53,962 in 2004; and Bill Clinton, 76,976 in 1996.

Trump through Tuesday night and early Wednesday ridiculed Sen. Bernie Sanders and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, as well as the "fake news media" and said the Democrats' result and Sanders' win was "nothing too fabulous."

"Wouldn’t a big story be that I got more New Hampshire Primary Votes than any incumbent president, in either party, in the history of that Great State? Not an insignificant fact!" Trump also tweeted.
