United States President Donald Trump has again launched a fierce attack on the media at a “campaign rally for America” event in the state of Florida.

The president told the crowd in Melbourne the media had their own plan as he said they did not want “to report the truth.”

Trump also believes his presidency has recorded achievements so far, insisting that a spirit of optimism was sweeping the US.

He had attacked the media at a press conference on Thursday, as his presidency continued to face scrutiny.

Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned earlier on Monday. And the US president is to interview candidates for the role on Sunday, according to reports.

After stepping down from Air Force One to a deafening cheer, he was drawn into the collective bosom of several thousand of his dearest followers — mostly white, mostly male middle-class Americans who feel they have been left behind by the country’s shifting economy.

Standing on stage, Trump said reporters “are part of the corrupt system”. When he attacked the media, people in the audience screamed their support.

“I’m here because I want to be among my friends and among the people,” he said.
