Trump Refuses to Take Question From Jim Acosta

Donald Trump Theresa May

Trump publicly derided Acosta's network in declining to take his question. Acosta can be heard asking during the question-and-answer portion of the presser. "It's called "fake news". I don't take questions from fake news.

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.

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.

On Friday, he deployed the term against a surprise target - a British newspaper owned by his ally Rupert Murdoch - along with two US-based networks, CNN and NBC.

A day earlier, Trump took a question from CNN's Jeremy Diamond following the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting.

Still, Trump's insistence on painting the media as "the enemy of the American people" isn't likely to let up any time soon.

That is not the first time Trump refused a CNN reporter's questions. "She is as honest as the day is long", he said.

The President's trip to the United Kingdom comes after the annual North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels, where he demanded allies pay their fair share of the defense burden.

Roberts also referenced his own previous role at CNN. They have fine journalists there who risk their lives to cover the news around the world. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair".

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".

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

"To say the President called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well... fake news", the Sun concluded.

She said the pro-Brexit Sun, and Trump, succeeded in planting more doubt about May's "soft exit" plans for leaving the European Union.

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

"I like you better without the hat", Trump said.
