President Trump slammed CNN’s Jim Acosta Friday by telling the reporter he’s fake news and refusing to answer his question during a press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.
“Since you attacked CNN can I ask you a question?” Acosta asked the president during the Q&A period.
Trump responded, “CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN. Let’s go to a real network,” and gave the question to Fox News’ John Roberts.
“Well we’re a real network too sir,” Acosta chimed in trying to get the last word.
This is not the first time President Trump has called Acosta and CNN fake news.
