Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is using Twitter to criticize the media.

In more than a dozen different tweets, the New Yorker called out the The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN and The Hill.

Trump tells his more than eight million Twitter followers that the media is “on a witch-hunt against me. False reporting, and plenty of it – but we will prevail!”

Trump’s tweets began on Friday, calling out The Hill for a story it did about him and carbon tax.

On Saturday and again on Monday morning, Trump went after CNN.

Trump also used his Twitter account to walk back a report from The Washington Post, which quoted Trump surrogate Dr. Ben Carson revealing five of Trump’s vice presidential picks.

Most of Trump’s tweets throughout the weekend came after the New York Times published a story about Trump and women on Saturday, titled, “Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private.” On Monday, a key source disputed the New York Times article during an interview on Fox and Friends.
