Trump refuses to answer CNN reporter's question

President Donald Trump refused pleas for a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta during Friday’s joint press conference in the U.K. with Prime Minister Theresa May

This morning, President Trump took the stage in the United Kingdom for a press conference next to British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"Something happened at the press conference that I think needs addressing".

"To say the President called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well... fake news", the Sun concluded. "She is honest as the day is long. To call her dishonest is unfair". In response to a journalist representing CNN, Trump criticized the premise of the reporter's question and then described "fake news CNN" as "the worst".

"I do not take questions from CNN", Trump said. Acosta said, referencing an earlier barb from the president. I used to work at CNN, they have fine journalists there who risk their lives to cover the news around the world.

That is not the first time Trump refused a CNN reporter's questions.

Ceramic remains and coal were also discovered in the temple, which scientists say could have been used for ritual activities. Archaeologists believe the temple was built between 1150 and 1200 and was dedicated to the Aztec rain god Tlaloc.

Acosta can be heard in the background firing back, "Well, we're a real network too, sir" before Roberts continues with his question.

Roberts made the remarks after initially being criticized for not immediately defending his fellow journalists when Trump called on him at the United Kingdom conference after insulting CNN. Roberts then asked his question.

"As did my fellow colleagues in the press corps", Roberts added.

'Given that the president took a question from a CNN reporter in his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation news conference just a day earlier, maybe he was letting off steam today rather than expressing an official stance toward a news organization's ability to report, but saying a news organization isn't real doesn't change the facts and won't stop us from doing our jobs, ' she said. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair".

Trump and Acosta have maintained a tense relationship since Trump took office, with Acosta often taking jabs from the president and his supporters.
