Trump Refuses to Take Question From Jim Acosta

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.

President Donald Trump said United Kingdom tabloid The Sun delivered "fake news", but then said it didn't deliver "fake news", so when he said it was "fake news", that was "fake news".

The Sun had already published audio recordings of key parts of the interview.

During a news conference with United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter on the grounds that the network was filled with "fake news". 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".

Following his insults, Trump immediately called on John Roberts of Fox, saying, "Let's go to a real network", to which Acosta yelled, "Well we're a real network too, sir". "Let's go to a real network".

In the article, Trump criticized May's handling of Brexit, saying that she would likely "kill" any trade deals between the USA and the United Kingdom because she didn't take his advice.

Welker asked him whether his widely reported criticism of May, and his barbs aimed earlier in the week at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, served to give Russian President Vladimir Putin the "upper hand" ahead of Monday's leader-to-leader summit.

I don't take questions from CNN", and then called on "John Roberts of Fox. The interview, which can be viewed below, thanks to MSNBC's Morning Joe, prove that Trump in fact did criticize May, and that there was absolutely nothing fake about the original article from The Sun.

"To say the President called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well... fake news", the Sun concluded. "Of course, it happens to be NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN". "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is also unfair". John Roberts of Fox. They have fine journalists there who risk their lives to cover the news around the world.

Trump then addressed Acosta directly after he continued to try to ask a question.
