President-elect Donald Trump on Monday criticized CNN on a book that it has published regarding the photo of Trump that was used for the book’s cover.

At 10:31 a.m., CNN tweeted, announcing publication of the book ‘Unprecedented’ about the 2016 election letting its followers know about the 2017 Inaugural Edition at stores and on its website.

At 10:32 a.m., Trump took to Twitter to provide his opinion on the book, in true Trump fashion, judging it literally by its cover. “@CNN just released a book called “Unprecedented” which explores the 2016 race & victory. Hope it does well but used worst cover photo of me!”

Host of CNN’s ‘Reliable Source’ Brian Stelter later suggested that his on air comments may have sparked tweets from Trump, who also wrote that pundits who claim he though he would lose the election are wrong. The President-elect is known to be an avid viewer of cable news and particularly CNN. Among other things, he has frequently tweeted on comments made on CNN within minutes of them being made.

Stelter also said on CNN earlier on Monday that Trump would not allow photographers “behind the scenes” on election night. ‘There’ actually no photos for history except what people took on their iPhones,” he said. “Maybe that’s because Trump wasn’t expecting to win on election night,” he added.

Other news outlets have received more aggressive criticism from the President-elect. In August, after he greeted Washington Post authors with unexpected open access, the real estate mogul attacked the book and called on his followers not to buy the book, calling it “a hit job.”

Twitter users were not all too supportive of the President-elect’s assessment of CNN’s book, some poking fun at him.
