He was asked about comments he had made to The Sun in which he criticized the Prime Minister's handling of Brexit. "It didn't put in what I said about the prime minister and I said tremendous things". "To say that they are not a real network or "fake news" is also unfair", he said.

In his interview with The Sun, Trump slammed May over her "soft" Brexit plan, which has put May's standing as the head of the Conservative Party in jeopardy.

Britain Prime Minister Theresa May and President Trump at a joint news conference Friday. After Kristen Welker asked him whether he was giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the "upper hand", given Trump's criticisms of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, he said, "You see, that is such dishonest reporting".

Roberts said later that he paused when Acosta and Trump went back and forth, and asked his own question when it became clear the president would not entertain one from CNN.

Later, CNN's Jim Acosta tried to ask a question: "Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?".

Though CNN-bashing is no new thing for Trump, many wondered at the fact that he went out of his way during an global press conference to insinuate that CNN is not a real network, and the fact that other media outlets allowed it to happen. "It's called fake news and we solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument".

"Fortunately, we tend to record stories now...we record when we deal with reporters". "There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world", Roberts said.

"For the President to call her dishonest is unfair", Roberts said.

Trump took offense today when Welker asked him, "Are you giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the upper hand heading into your talks given that you are challenging the alliances that he is seeking to break up and defeat?"

Trump: "See, that's such dishonest reporting", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together.

Trump ignored him, calling on a Fox News correspondent instead.

"Asking smart, tough questions, whether in a presidential press conference or interview, is central to the role a free press plays in a healthy republic", she said. The president called out one of my colleagues Kristen Welker of NBC as dishonest and said that NBC New was dishonest.

"I like you better without the hat", Trump said.
