Trump snubs CNN, slams NBC during Theresa May presser

Trump Attacks CNN, NBC in Joint Press Conference With British Prime Minister

President Trump held a press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May Friday morning from Chequers Court and didn't leave the lectern before a confrontation with CNN's Jim Acosta.

Trump called it dishonest reporting.

He added that he used to work for CNN, saying that Trump issuing "a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is also unfair".

Bottas had a lead to defend, Hamilton was running third, Vettel the red meat in the Mercedes sandwich. In F1 folklore as written by former McLaren leader Ron Dennis, second was always first of the losers.


The Wall Street Journal, owned by Murdoch's News Corp., said the day was "overshadowed" by Trump's interview with the Sun and said it could undermine May at a time when she is struggling to gain Parliament's support for her plans for Brexit. "Given that the president took a question from a CNN reporter in his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation news conference just a day earlier, maybe he was letting off steam today rather than expressing an official stance toward a news organization's ability to report, but saying a news organization isn't real doesn't change the facts and won't stop us from doing our jobs. CNN's fake news. I don't take questions from CNN", Trump said abruptly, calling on Acosta's Fox counterpart.

Trump has repeatedly attacked CNN throughout his time as president, and he has had a notably contentious relationship with Acosta. "Lets go to a real network". He criticized the newspaper for not printing the positive things he said about May, although he later softened his stance when it was pointed out that the Sun released audio portions of the interview. They have fine journalists there who risk their lives to cover the news around the world. Let me just add that I know Kristen Welker, she's as honest as the day is long, to call her dishonest is unfair.

Roberts said in a statement that the reason he asked a question was that "it became clear that the president wasn't going to entertain a question from [Acosta]".

CNN anchor Jake Tapper tweeted that he was "old enough to remember when other networks came to the defense of Fox News WH correspondents during the Obama years".

Trump: "See, that's such dishonest reporting", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together.

China: Tit-for-tat tariffs will ‘destroy’ US-China trade
The Chinese government has also promised to pursue necessary countermeasures, but has not yet provided details. Each side is mulling tariffs on a further $16 billion in goods that would bring the totals to $50 billion.


Welker was referring to that interview when she said Trump had criticized May "on her own soil", but the Sun had noted the interview was recorded before the USA president arrived in the UK.
