White House, CNN trade barbs over scrapped Bolton interview

During a joint press conference in London with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump bristled at a question from NBC News reporter Kristen Welker and refused to take one from an insistent Jim Acosta of CNN. I don't take questions from fake news.

During his opening remarks, President Trump stressed that the relationship with the United Kingdom is better than ever and backed Prime Minister May's handling of Brexit.

"To say the President called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well... fake news", the Sun concluded. Gold stars all around for that sterling reporting job.

After the press conference, President Trump traveled to Windsor Castle and met with Queen Elizabeth II.

Roberts then began putting his question to the president through the microphone provided to him as the reporter granted a question by the president. "Let's go to a real network". Let me just add that I know Kristen Welker, she's as honest as the day is long, to call her dishonest is unfair. "For the President to call her dishonest is unfair". Acosta said, referencing an earlier barb from the president.

President Donald Trump said United Kingdom tabloid The Sun delivered "fake news", but then said it didn't deliver "fake news", so when he said it was "fake news", that was "fake news".

Roberts proceeded to ask the president a question without publicly acknowledging the president's dismissal of Acosta, a move that prompted criticism from journalists on social media.

Roberts had issued a statement defending Welker and his decision to ask a question after being called on by Trump in response to backlash for not supporting Acosta.

"I used to work at CNN".
