Trump: ‘I Don’t Take Questions’ From ‘Fake News’ CNN


President Donald Trump called CNN “fake news” and refused to take a question from them at a joint press conference with British PM Theresa May on Friday.

WATCH:

CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to get the president’s attention during the presser, but Trump told him he was going to take questions from a “real” news outlet instead and then called on John Roberts from Fox News.

“John Roberts, go ahead John,” Trump said.

“May I ask you a question?” Acosta interjected.

“No, John Roberts go ahead,” Trump repeated. “CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news.”

“Let’s go to a real outlet,” Trump added.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper complained about the display on Twitter, asserting, “Old enough to remember when other networks came to the defense of Fox News WH correspondents during the Obama years. Such did not happen here. Lesson for the kids out there: no one should ever try to do the right thing with the expectation it will ever be reciprocated.”
