“It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media,” the president said in a series of tweets Sunday morning.

“Whenever you see the words ‘sources say’ in the fake news media, and they don’t mention names … it is very possible that those sources don’t exist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy.”

The president's renewed attack on the media comes amid reports that his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner talked with the Russian ambassador in December about establishing a back channel for communications about Syria and other policy matters.
