Trump told the media to 'be nice' after Kellyanne Conway's heated CNN interview


President Trump tweeted Monday morning that the news media should "be nice" to his representatives after a heated CNN interview with his aide Kellyanne Conway.

Trump has repeatedly criticized the media, calling coverage that is unfavorable of him "fake." He insists the media collaborated with the Democratic Party to fabricate ties between him and Russia.

Here's the original tweet.

Here's the followup, an apparently unrelated message about repealing Obamacare.

The interview with Conway was wide-ranging and often heated. Here's a clip of it.

Trump also stopped following MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Twitter, The Hill reports. That means Trump is only following 41 accounts total. 

The hosts had been increasingly critical of Trump in recent months. Scarborough called him a "fake president," and Brzezinski said she had "lost hope completely" in Trump's presidency shortly after it started. 

Trump did not call out any outlets by name in his Monday tweet. He's done so before.

He has called CNN "fake" and "a joke" multiple times.

He has also praised Fox News, saying the station "totally gets it."

And he's complimented Breitbart News for "policing media."

Trump will reportedly host Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Florida mansion
