President Donald Trump appears not to like the news he’s reading Monday morning.

In one Twitter post, the president rejected reports of polls showing that a majority of Americans oppose his travel order. In another, he appeared to lash out at suggestions that Stephen Bannon, his chief strategist, holds the real power in the West Wing.

A CNN poll released over the weekend said that 55 percent of Americans viewed Trump’s travel order as an attempt to keep Muslims out of the country.

The president also seemed angry about the Bannon-in-charge story line, which was featured in a Time magazine article and in a “Saturday Night Live” skit showing Bannon as the Grim Reaper directing Trump’s activities in the White House.

On Twitter, Trump called the reports “fake news” that sought to marginalize him.
