Trump battles with media at fiery UK press conference, refuses questions from CNN and praises Fox News

Baby Trump launched

President Donald Trump attacked NBC News and CNN reporters during a rare press conference with American and British reporters in the UK on Friday.

After NBC's Kristen Welker asked Trump whether he is "giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the upper hand" by publicly criticizing UK Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump responded by calling Welker "dishonest" and accused NBC of being "possibly worse than CNN." Trump had criticized May's Brexit plan in a published interview on Thursday, but on Friday he called that report — from The Sun, a British newspaper — "fake news."

A few minutes later, CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked the president for a question "since you attacked CNN." Trump responded to that by asserting that "CNN is fake news" and refused to call on Acosta.

"John Roberts of Fox. Let's go to a real network."




"I don't take questions from CNN," he said, as he scanned the assembled reporters to select one for the next question.
