President Donald Trump cited a report from The Washington Post on Wednesday tweet lashing out at the investigations by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The quote came from White House attorney John Dowd, in a Washington Post story about Mueller considering a subpoena if President Trump refuses to be interviewed by FBI investigators.

One of the journalists who wrote the story thanked the commander-in-chief.

President Trump has repeatedly lashed out at The Washington Post.

During the month of April, Trump slammed The Washington Post as "Fake & Disgusting News," said the newspaper "is far more fiction than fact" and slammed "The Fake News Washington Post."
