In 2017, NBC's Chuck tweeted during President Trump‘s Thursday press conference. To all the plans and new rules implemented by Trump, Todd slammed saying he is Un-American.
The main reason is believed that Todd found Trump’s constant delegitimization and labeling the press “fake news” the most dangerous aspect.
“I’m making this presentation directly to the American people with the media present — which is an honor to have you this morning — because many of our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth.”
"And will not treat the wonderful people of our country with the respect that they deserve.”
Chuck was so mad at Trump's conference that he tweeted,
This not a laughing matter. I'm sorry, delegitimizing the press is unAmerican— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) February 16, 2017
American lawyer and diplomat, John R. Bolton slammed back on Fox's Outnumbered to Todd saying,
I thought that tweet was one of the most foolish things I’ve seen from the media in a long time. That’s pretty low bar there.

Regarding the issue, Trump tweeted:
When will Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd and @NBCNews start talking about the Obama SURVEILLANCE SCANDAL and stop with the Fake Trump/Russia story?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 1, 2017
However, it is not the first time, as Trump already clashed with Chuck Todd earlier.

As reported Donald Trump referred him as the 'son of a bi**h' at a Pennsylvania campaign rally for congressional candidate Rick Saccone, in March 2018, to which Chuck responded as a bad impact on kids as:
I bring my kids up to respect the office of the presidency and the president. I don’t allow them to say anything negative, ever, about the president. It creates a challenge to all parents when he uses vulgarities like that.
Let's hope the round-up of their conflict comes to an end.
