President Trump said on Sunday distrust in the media was "finally sinking through," after a week in which his White House was at odds with the press over Trump's dealings with Gold Star families.

"It is finally sinking through. 46% OF PEOPLE BELIEVE MAJOR NATIONAL NEWS ORGS FABRICATE STORIES ABOUT ME. FAKE NEWS, even worse! Lost cred," Trump tweeted Sunday, citing a Politico-Morning Consult poll published Wednesday.

The survey also showed that 37 percent of U.S. voters think media outlets do not make up news about Trump, while the remaining 17 percent are undecided.

Trump's tweet follows a week in which the administration clashed with the press over its coverage of a phone call the president made to express his condolences to the family of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was one of four soldiers killed in action in Niger earlier in October during a deadly ambush.

Johnson's congresswoman, Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., who was with his family when Trump placed the call, described snippets of the conversation to the media, saying Trump told Johnson's grieving widow her husband "knew what he signed up for."

Key White House officials, including chief of staff John Kelly, who lost his own son in 2010 while he was serving in Afghanistan, slammed Wilson for politicizing the death of a U.S. military serviceman.

"Wacky Congresswoman Wilson is the gift that keeps on giving for the Republican Party, a disaster for Dems. You watch her in action & vote R!" Trump also tweeted Sunday.
