President Trump refused a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta at a joint press conference Friday afternoon with UK Prime Minister Theresa May in Buckinghamshire.
Earlier in the press conference, Trump called out CNN after receiving a question from NBC News reporter Hallie Jackson. Trump said NBC is “possibly worse than CNN.”
“Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?” Acosta asked Trump.
“[FOX News correspondent] John Roberts go ahead,” he said.
“Can I ask you a question?” Acosta persisted.
“No,” Trump told him.
“CNN is fake news,” Trump said. “I don’t take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN.”
Acosta brought the press conference to a halt insisting that the U.S. president take his question. Trump tried to move things along by calling on Roberts again.
“John Roberts from FOX, let’s go to a real network,” Trump said
“Well, we’re a real network too,” Acosta said, having the last word.
