WASHINGTON (AP) — Just back from Asia, President Donald Trump has resumed his morning tweeting routine — this time citing what he's calling a "successful" trip and slamming a regular media target.

The president arrived back at the White House on Tuesday evening after a 12-day tour of Asia, and the tweeting picked up hours later.

He says the United States is "respected again" in the Asia-Pacific region, and he asserts that people "will see the fruits of our long but successful trip for many years to come!"

Trump also is back sparring at CNN, one of his favorite media targets.

The president tweeted Wednesday that he was "forced" to watch CNN during the trip and "again realized how bad, and FAKE, it is."

Trump also tweeted criticism at The New York Times. He says the paper "hates" that he has good relationships with world leaders and "they should realize that these relationships are a good thing, not a bad thing." He called the paper "naive (or dumb)" on foreign policy.
