President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday took aim at news coverage of his comments about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Trump took to Twitter to blast the "dishonest media" for reporting he agrees with Assange, insisting he just repeats what the exiled figure says and expects Americans to make up their own minds.

Thursday's Twitter blast comes in the wake of reaction to his Wednesday tweets, citing Assange's statements about how easy it was for hackers to infiltrate the Democratic National Committee last year. He also highlighted Assange's statement labeling the U.S. media dishonest.

It also comes hours after The New York Times published story with the headline: "Trump and Julian Assange, an Unlikely Pair, Unite to Sow Hacking Doubts."

"Just a year ago, they might have seemed the oddest of couples," the story starts. "But now President-elect Donald J. Trump and Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, have formed a united front against the conclusion of American intelligence agencies that Russian intelligence used hacked emails to interfere in the presidential election."
