Donald Trump Downgrades His Assessment of CNN From Fake News to VERY Fake News

At a freewheeling press conference today, Donald Trump continued an in-person assault on his media adversaries. During his first solo press conference as President, Donald Trump noted:

“Our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth. And will not treat the wonderful people of our country with the respect that they deserve. Many of our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth and will not treat you with the respect you deserve. Much of the media in Washington, D.C., along with New York, Los Angeles in particular, speaks for the special interests and for those profiting off the obviously very, very broken system.”

“The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. Tremendous disservice. We have to talk about it. We have to find out what’s going on because the press honestly is out of control.”

Trump also touted his achievements, his approval ratings and referred to a BBC reporter “another beauty”. The highlight of the press conference occurred when Donald Trump took a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta. When he was President-Elect, Mr. Trump refused to take a question from Mr. Acosta and told him CNN was terrible and “you are fake news“.
