Trump Tears CNN a New One With Epic Response
President Trump excoriated a reporter for asking what he perceived as a loaded question about supposed tensions between his administration and other world leaders over steel and aluminum tariffs.
Per The Hill:
President Trump slammed CNN as “fake news” after a reporter with the news organization asked him a question during a press briefing at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit.
After the reporter asked Trump a question about tensions between him and other leaders at the G-7 summit, the president asked what network he was from.
“Who are you with, out of curiosity?” Trump asked the reporter, who replied that he was from CNN.
“I figured,” Trump said. “Fake News CNN. The worst."
Trump is leaving the G-7 summit in Quebec early for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore that could be the defining moment in his presidency.
