On Monday, Trump tweeted: “North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won't happen!”

He also took aim at the city of Chicago's soaring murder rate, targeting the Windy City's mayor and former chief of staff to President Obama, Rahm Emanuel.

He also blasted the media’s bias against him during the election.

On Tuesday, the attacks continued as he slammed General Motors for sending jobs across the border to Mexico.

Trump also lambasted Obamacare.
