Saturday, 14 Jul, 2018

Fox News reporter John Roberts rebuked President Donald Trump in a statement after he refused to take a question from a CNN journalist and called NBC's reporting "dishonest" at a press conference on Friday.

Trump called it dishonest reporting. "I have a lot of respect for the prime minister". "It didn't put in what I said about the prime minister and I said tremendous things". I don't take questions from CNN, ' Trump lectured.

DeLay called the meeting between Trump and May a success, despite a report in The Sun newspaper ran headlined, "Trump's Brexit Blast: Donald Trump told Theresa May how to do Brexit "but she wrecked it" - and says the U.S. trade deal is off".

Britain Prime Minister Theresa May and President Trump at a joint news conference Friday.

During one awkward moment in the news conference, Trump called attention to Reuters reporter Jeff Mason's hat. "CNN is fake news, I don't take questions from CNN. CNN's fake news. I don't take questions from CNN", Trump said abruptly, calling on Acosta's Fox counterpart.

"Mr. President since you attacked CNN can I ask you a question?".

Watch Trump's response about May below, and listen to the "fake news" audio here. "There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world".

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.

Because clearly, that's what Acosta would have done if the president blew off Fox News? LOL. She is honest as the day is long. "Of course, it happens to be NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN". John Roberts of Fox.

He said he only proceeded with his question after "it became clear that the president wasn't going to entertain a question from" Acosta. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is also unfair". "We stand by our reporting and the quotes we used - including those where the President was positive about the Prime Minister, in both the paper and in our audio - and we're delighted that the President essentially retracted his original charge against the paper later in the press conference". The president called out one of my colleagues Kristen Welker of NBC as dishonest and said that NBC New was dishonest.
