US President Donald Trump, today called "crazy lunatics" those critical journalists of his presidency, mired in a partial shutdown of the Administration since last December 22, and stated that social media in his country use "non-existent sources."

"Many (journalists) have become crazy lunatics who have renounced to the TRUTH!" Trump exclaimed in his Twitter account, after reviewing the "successes" of his Government.

"With all the success that our country is having, l  recently published employment numbers, which are incredible, the false and totally dishonest media regarding me and my presidency (they say) that (my presidency) has never been so bad," said the president.

Likewise, Trump assured that the American media will "deceive and degrade" his figure to make the "tremendous success" of his Administration "looks as ineffective as possible."

"They use non-existent sources and write fiction stories. Our country is doing very well, however, this is a sad day in the United States!",  denounced the president.

Trump is used to charge against the media and journalists and to accuse them of lying, although until now, he had not used the term "crazy lunatics" to refer to communication professionals that criticize his presidency.

The Administration is partially shut down since last December 22 because the negotiation between Republicans and Democrats in Congress was blocked after Trump's demands of increasing the budget to include more than 5.600 million dollars to finance the wall with México.

Trump's unwavering attitude towards the wall construction, which was one of his star electoral promises, and the continued refusal from Democrats to agree on this issue, has led the Government to be partially closed for 17 days.

This situation has caused some media to catalog the current condition as the worst in the US government since Trump's arrival at the White House, an opinion that the president has not liked.

Administrative shutdown affects agencies of ten Executive departments, including Transportation and Justice; as well as dozens of national parks, which are usually a major tourist attraction.

In addition, it affects 800,000 of the 2.1 million federal workers, who will not get paid while the government remains closed and wait for the budget approval.
