"Fortunately, we tend to record stories now...we record when we deal with reporters". "CNN is fake news".
Throughout the press conference Trump praised May effusively, calling her "an incredible woman" doing a "great job".
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. "Let's go to- Let's go to a real network", said Trump. Trump responded by saying, "I don't take questions from CNN", and finished with, "CNN is fake news". "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister", he added.
After Trump finished an answer, reporters in the audience raised their hands to ask another question, including Acosta, who interjected to ask a question since Trump criticized CNN. "I didn't criticize the prime minister", Trump falsely claimed.
Roberts then began putting his question to the president through the microphone provided to him as the reporter granted a question by the president. "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 ... unfair". They have fine journalists there who risk their lives to cover the news around the world. "She is honest as the day is long".
"In today's press conference, I paused while my colleague from CNN went back and forth with President Trump over a question. We appreciate The Sun for posting the entire audio of their interview so that everyone can hear the president's remarks for themselves".
