In his first press conference of the new year, President-elect Donald J. Trump didn’t hold back when letting Jim Acosta, CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent, know how he felt about his reporting.
Trump was attempting to answer questions from another journalist, when Acosta began interrupting Trump, demanding to be given a question. Trump initially attempted to ignore Acosta, but eventually turned to him and stated “Don’t be rude. You are fake news,” and further referred to Acosta’s organization, CNN, as “terrible.”
Trump also referred to internet media company Buzzfeed as a “failing pile of garbage”, and that they would suffer the consequences for also spreading “fake news”.
Trump did eventually take a question from another CNN reporter, Jeremy Diamond.
