It came after Mr Trump tweeted to say a legislative "mess" could have been avoided if Republican congressional leaders had followed his advice to tie debt ceiling legislation to a veterans affairs bill.
"I requested that Mitch M & Paul R tie the Debt Ceiling legislation into the popular VA Bill (which just passed) for easy approval," Mr Trump wrote, referring to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan.
"Could have been so easy-now a mess!"
The President went on to say "the fake news" was "complaining" about his recent speeches, before proceeding to characterise his recent statements as "sombre," "enthusiastic, dynamic and fun," and "respectful and strong".
