While most of America was asleep, President Donald Trump was awake in Scotland where he said he was going to play golf ("my primary form of exercise!") and ranting at the media once again on Twitter.


Earlier in the morning Trump called the indictment of 12 high ranking Russian officials charged with influencing the 2016 presidential campaign "stories" before -- once again -- attacking CNN.

Referring to a press conference in England where he refused to take a question from CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, the president gloated that it was a "takedown" and he was anxious to see if the "Fake News" covered it.

"So funny! I just checked out Fake News CNN, for the first time in a long time (they are dying in the ratings), to see if they covered my takedown yesterday of Jim Acosta (actually a nice guy). They didn’t! But they did say I already lost in my meeting with Putin. Fake News," he tweeted before adding, "Remember, it was Little Jeff Z [Zucker] and his people, who are told exactly what to say, who said I could not win the election in that 'there was no way to 270' (over & over again) in the Electoral College. I got 306! They were sooooo wrong in their election coverage. Still hurting!"
