Trump was referring to when he refused Acosta, who asked if he could ask a question during a joint press conference between Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Acosta responded and informed President Trump that CNN was not fake news.
"No", Trump replied. "CNN is fake news". I don't take questions- I don't take questions from CNN.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to CNN's Jake Tapper, who questioned on Saturday why John Bolton was pulled from a planned interview. However, Acosta shouted a question as Trump walked off the stage: He asked if Trump would tell Putin to stay out of USA elections.
Trump turned around and answered yes. This led him to remind the world that CNN was "sooooo wrong in their election coverage" and they are "still hurting" but that Acosta is "actually a nice guy".More news: Wimbledon 2018 -- Barbora Krejcikova, Katerina Siniakova reach doubles final

Different continent, same old CNN-hating Trump. The White House has not commented on the reason for canceling Bolton's appearance.
Roberts also referenced his own previous role at CNN.
Roberts, who has worked at CNN and CBS News, then asked whether relations with Russian Federation could ever improve as long as Moscow occupied Crimea. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair". "Let's go to a real network", Trump said, shutting down Acosta. She's as honest as the day is long. Trump criticized May's Brexit plan in an interview with the British newspaper The Sun published Thursday, but on Friday he called that report "fake news". "Of course it happens to be NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN", he said. "And she's a total professional because when I saw her this morning I said, "I want to apologize because I said such good things about you", and she said, "don't worry, it's only the press".
"Saying a news organization isn't real doesn't change the facts and won't stop us from doing our jobs", Talev said.
