In disturbing exchange, Trump refuses to answer question from CNN reporter

Donald Trump lashes out at media calls CNN ‘fake news

"Don't be rude. No, I'm not going to give you a question".

Trump's anger was over allegations that Russian agents had gathered compromising information about him - claims that have not been verified. CNN, which Trump also laid into during his presser, also published a story on Tuesday about a two-page synopsis of that same dossier, which CNN reported had been presented to Trump last week.

"CNN's decision to publish carefully sourced reporting about the operations of our government is vastly different than Buzzfeed's decision to publish unsubstantiated memos".

The press conference, Trump's first in six months, resulted in seperate clashes with the publications over their decision to report the memo (albeit in different capacities).

Acosta, who worked as a reporter and substitute anchor at local NBC affiliate WBIR from 1995 to 1998 and is now the senior White House correspondent for CNN, balked at Trump's assertion that CNN went "out of their way" to build up a recent BuzzFeed story that contained allegations about ties between Trump and Russian Federation. "I think they're going to suffer the consequences. they already are". Trump refused to talk to a CNN reporter, so what exactly is his beef with him? Trump will additionally not be informed of new deals the company makes.

CNN is calling the bully out, and if their report contains any inaccuracies, it is up to Trump to stop whining and point them out. They are using BuzzFeed's decision to deflect from CNN's reporting, which has been matched by the other major news organizations. "Though we at Fox News can not confirm CNN's report, it is our observation that its correspondents followed journalistic standards, and that neither they nor any other journalist should be subjected to belittling and delegitimizing by the president-elect of the United States". We are fully confident in our reporting.

Acosta then started to say that since Trump had demeaned his organization he should be allowed to speak and ask a question.

Taper then called the decision by Buzzfeed to publish the entire 35-page dossier, which was nearly entirely unverified, 'irresponsible journalism that hurts us all'.
