President Donald Trump found time to attack CNN, NBC and the British tabloid The Sun, and offer fashion advice to a fourth news organization, while talking to reporters today with British Prime Minister Theresa May. "I don't take questions from CNN", said Trump.
Later in the press conference, Trump identified Sun journalists in the crowd, saying that he wishes they put the positive things he said about May in the headline.
Among other things, Trump said that CNN is "fake news" and that he doesn't take questions from the network after Acosta asked him a question.
Pres. Trump denies interview with The Sun was critical of Prime Minister Theresa May. "Lets go to a real network".
A day earlier, Trump took a question from CNN's Jeremy Diamond following the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting.
Trump told the newspaper that May had failed to take his advice for managing her country's divorce from the European Union and said her approach "will probably kill" the prospects for a U.S. -U.K. trade deal.
Still, Trump's insistence on painting the media as "the enemy of the American people" isn't likely to let up any time soon. "Of course that's coming from NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN", he said, adding that her question was "dishonest reporting".
Roberts, a chief White House correspondent, also stood by Welker, who was attacked by the president when she asked him if he was giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the "upper hand". She is honest as the day is long. "I don't take questions from CNN". "There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world".
"No, no", Trump responded, calling the network "fake news".
Although the Sun has been criticized for its journalism in the past, Cooper said, "Trump's explanation that comments in the interview were "fake news" was greeted with derision by British journalists". The president called out one of my colleagues Kristen Welker of NBC as dishonest and said that NBC New was dishonest.
Trump: "See, that's such dishonest reporting", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together. You can watch Trump's comments below.
