Trump disses 'fake news' CNN in joint press conference with May

Watch Trump's response about May below, and listen to the "fake news" audio here.

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.

Roberts then began putting his question to the president through the microphone provided to him as the reporter granted a question by the president.

She emphasized that Trump was 'challenging these alliances that [Putin] seeks to break up and destroy'.

Trump also called out NBC.

We have left North Atlantic Treaty Organisation with more money, with more unity, with more spirit than North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has probably ever had, ' he declared. He insisted that his administration has been "very tough" on Russian Federation. Do we wish that Trump was not the victor in that election!'

Acosta shot back, "Well we're a real network too sir".

As Roberts sat up in his chair, Acosta got the last word.

Interestingly, the man who heads "real network" Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, also owns the "fake news" Sun.

The White House Correspondents Association chastised the president in a statement later in the day.

He said he only proceeded with his question after "it became clear that the president wasn't going to entertain a question from" Acosta.

The Sun had already published audio recordings of key parts of the interview.

Michael Holmes, a CNN International anchor based in Australia, tweeted what many reporters were doubtless thinking: What if May were to insist CNN have a turn? Acosta can be heard asking during the question-and-answer portion of the presser.

Asked to rate the U.S. -U.K. relations, Trump gave them the "highest level of special". Acosta said, referencing an earlier barb from the president.
