In a follow-up tweet, Holland revealed that the gift also included a note from the 60-year-old actor, who is an outspoken critic of President Trump.

“To the White House Press Corps,” it read. “Keep up the good fit for Truth, Justice and the American Way.”

“Especially the Truth part,” it finished. “Tom Hanks.”

The note also included a cartoon drawing of American soldiers.

The cartoon was captioned, “Fresh, spirited American troops, flushed with victory, are bringing in thousands of hungry, ragged, battle-weary prisoners."

Hanks’ present comes amid growing animosity between the White House and the media.

Last week, press secretary Sean Spicer prevented reporters from CNN, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Politico and Buzzfeed from attending a non-televised press briefing.
