Trump Refuses CNN’s Acosta Pleas

14 July 2018

When CNN reporter Jim Acosta started asking Trump if he could ask a question, Trump flatly denied his request and instead went to Fox News' John Roberts. "I don't take questions from CNN". "Since you attacked CNN?". He continued to make pleas for a question as Trump called on John Roberts of Fox News.

Earlier in June, when Trump held a news conference at the G-7 summit in Quebec, he told reporters during one exchange that he "came up with the term fake news" because many journalists who cover him are "very dishonest". "I don't take questions from CNN", Trump said.

Matt Dornic, vice president of communications and digital partnerships at CNN, took aim at Roberts's question and his subsequent statement defending his actions.

Acosta can be heard in the background firing back, "Well, we're a real network too, sir" before Roberts continues with his question. "Let's go to a real network".

During his opening remarks, President Trump stressed that the relationship with the United Kingdom is better than ever and backed Prime Minister May's handling of Brexit. "I also used to work at CNN". For the President to call her dishonest is unfair. The White House correspondent reportedly asked if Trump planned to tell Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay out of US elections in the future, to which Trump answered "yes". "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is also unfair". 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.

And we stressed our well-known concerns about Nord Stream 2, Sefcovic said at a press conference on Thursday after the EU-U.S. Andriy Shevchenko, Ukraine's ambassador to Canada, said he was "very pleased" with Freeland's statement Wednesday.

Roberts also referenced his own previous role at CNN. "There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world".

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".

All of the cable news networks, along with ABC, CBS and NBC, carried the news conference live.

In a statement, the Sun said it stood by its reporting. "You see, that is such dishonest reporting", Trump said.
