The president's words come amid continuing criticism from US politicians and some media over his handling of the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin، according to Sputnik.
President Trump has taken to Twitter to voice his concerns over how the so-called 'Fake News Media' was handling his approach to Russia، warning that they "badly" wanted "to see a major confrontation with Russia،" even if this "could lead to war."
The media، according to the president، are acting "recklessly،" and hate that he will "probably have a good relationship with Putin."
President Trump's summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday was broadly condemned by former US officials، politicians and media. Ex-CIA chief John Brennan called Trump's performance "treasonous."
Clinton-era secretary of state Madeleine Albright accused him of being the "gift that keeps giving to Putin."
A host of lawmakers، Democrat and Republican، attacked Trump over the fact that he appeared to disagree US intelligence claims that Russia meddled in the 2016 election.
Trump clarified those remarks the next day، saying that he did believe that Russia had meddled. Trump responded to his critics by saying that the "haters" were just angry that he didn't turn the summit with Putin into a "boxing match."
Also on Thursday، President Putin told diplomats that although Moscow and Washington had begun work to restore relations، they presently remain at levels which are in many ways worse than they were during the Cold War.
