The president said that he would take questions, but only from “real news.”
President Trump called CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta “fake news” after Acosta asked about Trump’s Saturday comments on the domestic terror attack in Charlottesville at a White House event on Monday.
“Mr. President can you explain why you did not condemn those hate groups by name over the weekend?” Acosta asked.
“They’ve been condemned. They’ve been condemned,” Trump responded.
Acosta then inquired into why the president was not holding a press conference on Monday.
The president stated that he had already held a press conference, likely a reference to the remarks he made earlier in the day from the White House.
“It doesn’t bother me at all, but I like real news, not fake news,” Trump said. “You’re fake news.”
Acosta shot back, asking if the president had “spread fake news” himself.
