Donald Trump has blasted Vanity Fair, claiming the magazine is in "big trouble."

The President-elect took to Twitter yesterday morning to hit out at the publication, tweeting that the media outlet is "dead" and that its longtime editor, Graydon Carter, has "no talent".

"Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine," he wrote.

"Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!"

Vanity Fair

is one of many media outlets that have been regular critics of President-elect Trump throughout his candidacy and following his election victory.

Recently, the magazine published an article claiming that Trump Grill - a steakhouse in the lobby of Manhattan's Trump Tower - could be "the worst restaurant in America."

"The allure of Trump's restaurant, like the candidate, is that it seems like a cheap version of rich," the article read, adding the restaurant "reveals everything you need to know about our next president."

Years ago - long before Trump expressed an interest in politics - Graydon Carter referred to the billionaire businessman as a "short-fingered vulgarian" in the now-defunct Spy magazine, which he co-founded in 1986.

Carter recently spoke out about his ongoing joke about the size of Trump's hands, admitting it sparked a decades-long feud.

The tweet condemning Vanity Fair is one of several the President-elect fired off . He expressed gratitude for being named "Person of the Year" by TIME magazine and the Financial Times, saying it was a "great honour."

He also called out the media for complicating his move to the White House, and questioned Russian hacking's impact on the US election.
