"HillaryClinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Trump Jr. is facing backlash for a meeting he had with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton. A former Russian military intelligence services officer was also present at the meeting, as were top Trump campaign officials Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort.

Lawmakers are competing to get Trump Jr. to testify before their committees about the meeting. Trump Jr. said before releasing a full string of emails about the meeting last week that he would be "happy" to speak with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Clinton for deleting emails from her computer on a private server while Secretary of State, and for her team receiving debate questions for a CNN town hall ahead of the event from Democratic operative Donna Brazile.

He has often criticized negative media coverage of his campaign and administration as "fake news."
