Donald Trump tweets again - in defence of his tweeting

Donald Trump has hailed his own social media following, saying he can deliver his message directly to voters instead of going through the "fake news media".

The president tweeted: "The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people! I can go around them."

Mr Trump is an avid user of Twitter, with more than 32 million followers on his personal account and over 18 million on the official presidential account.

He also has millions of followers on his official Facebook pages.

Democrats and Republicans alike have criticised his use of Twitter, particularly amid the investigation into Russia's interference in last year's presidential election.
