Taking to Twitter, where he often does his little rants, Trump said that he will announce on this coming Monday his new - in all capital letters - "MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR".

The late-night comedians responded by copying each other in an attempt to get the "Fake News Media" award, expressing the view that receiving an award would be a badge of honor. "Stay tuned!" the president tweeted.

His tweet prompted worldwide bemusement and amusement, but now the President has said he is delaying the honours citing the "interest in and importance of" the awards. Trump's media dishonesty awards will probably be a blip, but he'll undoubtedly enjoy every minute of coverage they generate.

"TIME "MISTAKENLY" reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr from the Oval Office".

Mr Trump dismissed the book as "phony", adding the author "is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book".

The ad includes a photo of Trevor as well as some quotes calling the show "monotonous ... liberal dogma" and "a fake news show". Speaking on the Late Show on Wednesday, he said: "You know folks, its awards season".

Stephen Colbert also got in on the act, purchasing a billboard in Times Square to make sure he would not get snubbed.

During his tenure as President, Mr Trump has repeatedly claimed the media has been unfair to him.
