  • President Donald Trump refused pleas for a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta during Friday’s joint press conference in the U.K. with Prime Minister Theresa May

President Trump denied criticizing British Prime Minister Theresa May when taking questions from the press Friday, despite there being easily accessible audio of his scathing interview with British tabloid The Sun. I also used to work at CNN. "Fortunately we tend to record stories now so we have it for your enjoyment if you would like it".

The Sun had already published audio recordings of key parts of the interview. He added that he had apologized to her since he had given her many compliments, and said that she responded "don't worry, it's only the press".

After the press conference, President Trump traveled to Windsor Castle and met with Queen Elizabeth II.

Trump went on to call NBC fake news that does "dishonest reporting", refused to call on CNN's Jim Acosta saying "CNN's fake news, I don't take a question from CNN" in preference of a reporter from "real network" Fox News and joked around with May asking if she has fake news in her country too.

Interestingly, the man who heads "real network" Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, also owns the "fake news" Sun. Did Trump criticize Prime Minister Theresa May, or was it "fake news"?

Roberts said, "I know Kristen Welker of NBC".


He called on NBC's Kristen Welker, who asked, "Are you giving Russian president Vladimir Putin the upper hand heading into your talks, given that you are challenging these alliances that he seeks to break up and destroy?"

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

"Can I ask you a question?" "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair".

'John Roberts of Fox [News Channel]! She's as honest as the day is long.
