Trump said he 'doesn't like tweeting' and only does so because the press is 'dishonest'


UPDATE 8:10 a.m.: Trump sounded off on Twitter about the media again Wednesday morning.

He said NBC News was reporting "fake news" about major job announcements.

He said he was falsely denied credit for keeping jobs in the U.S.

He called out the Today Show specifically.

He also said the beginning of his inaugural address will be a "thank you" to the Obamas.

He said his goal on his first day in the White House was to "go to work."


President-elect Donald Trump said in a "Fox & Friends" interview Wednesday morning that he "doesn't like tweeting," but does so because the press is "dishonest" and mangles his messages.

Trump said Twitter allowed him to call out Rep. John Lewis for saying he "forgot" he skipped President George W. Bush's inauguration. 

Trump said he "didn't like tweeting," but the "dishonest press" forced him to tweet.

Trump also said Rep. John Lewis "grandstanded" by skipping his inauguration.

He also insisted Mexico would, in fact, pay for the border wall.

And he's expressed the utility of social media of a tool.

Trump boasts more than 20 million Twitter followers and 17 million Facebook likes.
