In the first Donald Trump press conference as President of the United States, he said to Jim Acosta, reporter of CNN, not to be rude and that their news organization is fake.
Jim Acosta was supposed to ask a question but rather diverted the attention to request Trump to ask a question to their news organization about his statement against CNN.
Here’s what took place:
CNN Reporter: Mr. President elect since you’re attacking our news organization can you gives us a chance? Can you give us a chance to ask question? Can you give us a question for attacking us?
TRUMP: No not you. Don’t be rude. Go ahead (referring to one reporter who is not from CNN). I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.
And then a round of cheers and applause was heard from the crowd.
