Donald Trump has claimed his administration is running "like a fine-tuned machine".

In an extraordinary press conference yesterday, the President claimed the White House wasn't in disorder and blasted the media again over 'fake news' reports. 

He said: ""The leaks are real. The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.

"I have never seen more dishonest media, frankly than the political media.

"My organisation is running like a fine-tuned machine."

But his presidency has been plagued by controversy, only 28 days after taking office, a number of the disputes involving the press. 

Notably, shortly after his inauguration, Mr. Trump accused of them of lying about about the size of the crowd at the event.

He has maintained a strained relationship with the media, accusing it of "bias and hatred" towards him whenever negative reports were published and dismissing their attempts to "fact-check" his statements.

In the conference, the president dismissed as "fake news" reports that he and members of his administration have links to Russia.

He insisted he has "nothing to do with Russia", saying: "I own nothing in Russia, I don't have any deals in Russia.

"To the best of my knowledge no person that I deal with does."
