CNN reporter demands camera time at Trump press conference payback

CNN reporter demands camera time at Trump press conference payback

Friday at a press event with British Prime Minister Theresa May in England, President Donald Trump refused to answer a question from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, saying "CNN is 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". "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister". [The Sun] didn't put in what I said about the prime minister.

Trump: "CNN is fake news".

DeLay called the meeting between Trump and May a success, despite a report in The Sun newspaper ran headlined, "Trump's Brexit Blast: Donald Trump told Theresa May how to do Brexit "but she wrecked it" - and says the United States trade deal is off".

Let's break it down: According to what The Sun wrote on Friday, the paper conducted an exclusive interview with the president on Wednesday, and then the president made comments about said interview in an "extraordinary press conference" at British PM Theresa May's country retreat, Chequers. It called Trump's hour-long joint news conference with May "surreal" and said he "referred repeatedly yet obliquely to "a suggestion" he had given Mrs".

"I used to work at CNN".

'Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?' he boomed, loud enough for microphones 10 yards away to pick up. "Let's go to- Let's go to a real network", said Trump.


The Sun had already published audio recordings of key parts of the interview.

The Sun's headline: "Trump's Brexit Blast: Donald Trump told Theresa May how to do Brexit "but she wrecked it" - and says the USA trade deal is off". "There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world". I know Kristen Welker of NBC.

Welker asked him whether his widely reported criticism of May, and his barbs aimed earlier in the week at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, served to give Russian President Vladimir Putin the "upper hand" ahead of Monday's leader-to-leader summit.

Trump: "See, that's such dishonest reporting", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together. Instead of sticking up for his fellow journalists, Roberts continued to ask his question as though nothing had happened. Lesson for the kids out there: "no one should ever try to do the right thing with the expectation that it will ever be reciprocated". Margaret Talev, president of the White House Correspondents Association, said that "asking smart, tough questions, whether in a presidential press conference or interview, is central to the role a free press plays in a healthy republic".

"No, no", Trump responded, calling the network "fake news".

In a statement, the Sun said it stood by its reporting.
