The president said he was "extremely pleased" that CNN "has finally been exposed as #FakeNews and garbage journalism".

The co-hosts of a United States morning talk show have struck back at abusive tweets from President Donald Trump.

Two US television hosts attacked by Donald Trump on Twitter have questioned his mental health.

Brzezinski and Scarborough also fired back at the president. We will continue to WIN!

He was widely condemned by both Democrats and Republicans and Scarborough and Brzezinski delayed their vacation to appear as guests on their own show to respond to the president. "FAKE NEWS", he tweeted during "Morning Joe" Friday morning.

"I haven't talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don't think she's going to put up with it much longer".

In what's become something of an embarrassing national tradition, Donald Trump this week took to Twitter and blasted MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Chicago police officers indicted in Laquan McDonald case
He was charged with murder in late 2015 after a Cook County judge a police dash cam recording of the shooting to be released. The three charges each carry penalties of three to five years in prison and possible fines up to $25,000.

They told him that if he called and apologised, Mr Trump would get the story killed, Mr Scarborough said.

The Washington Post reported on Friday that some unnamed White House advisers are frustrated with Trump's focus on NBC News as opposed to CNN, and believe his feud with the latter network has "clearer villains and heroes".

"He attacks women because he fears women", added co-host Joe Scarborough, a former Republican US congressman.

Ms Brzezinski said the National Enquirer had been calling her children and her close friends about a story they were planning to run, and the White House "said, oh, this could go away".

Trump responded to Scarborough in a tweet Friday morning, saying: "He called me to stop a National Enquirer article". The 50-year-old revealed to Vanity Fair that she had had a procedure to tighten the skin under her neck but did not want it becoming public knowledge, especially the way Trump described it.

"It's a shame what they've done to the name CNN, that I can tell you", Trump said.

It also has a ring of plausibility because of Trump's longtime friendship with David Pecker, chief executive officer of the Enquirer's parent company whose unabashed loyalty to Trump was reflected in its coverage of the 2016 campaign. He then said the pair came to Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row around New Year's Eve "and insisted on joining me".
