President Donald Trump is renewing his attacks on two of his favorite targets: the special counsel Russia probe and the news media.

Trump, who is on a working vacation at his New Jersey golf club, began Sunday with a series of searing tweets.

He defended calling the media “The Enemy of the People,” and said journalists “purposely cause great division & distrust” and can “cause War!”

Trump then particularly went after recent reporting about Robert Mueller’s probe into possible links between his campaign and Russian officials, particularly stories on how he may be concerned about his eldest son’s legal exposure.

And Trump once again defended the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting in which his son met with a Kremlin-connected lawyer saying it was “totally legal” and that he didn’t know about it.
