  • Donald Trump Theresa May

Let's break it down: According to what The Sun wrote on Friday, the paper conducted an exclusive interview with the president on Wednesday, and then the president made comments about said interview in an "extraordinary press conference" at British PM Theresa May's country retreat, Chequers. "I don't take questions from CNN", Trump said.

Before he had the chance to release his so-called "audio" recordings, however, The Sun released the recordings of the interview themselves.

Earlier in June, when Trump held a news conference at the G-7 summit in Quebec, he told reporters during one exchange that he "came up with the term fake news" because many journalists who cover him are "very dishonest".

Throughout the press conference Trump praised May effusively, calling her "an incredible woman" doing a "great job". "He also called out CNN as not a real network: "'fake news, '" Roberts said.

"That's such dishonest reporting", Trump said in response.

In the article, Trump criticized May's handling of Brexit, saying that she would likely "kill" any trade deals between the US and the United Kingdom because she didn't take his advice.

Later, CNN's Jim Acosta tried to ask a question: "Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?" "I didn't criticize the prime minister", Trump falsely claimed.

"To say the President called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well... fake news", the Sun concluded.

Welker asked him whether his widely reported criticism of May, and his barbs aimed earlier in the week at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, served to give Russian President Vladimir Putin the "upper hand" ahead of Monday's leader-to-leader summit.

Trump then addressed Acosta directly after he continued to try to ask a question. Let me just add that I know Kristen Welker, she's as honest as the day is long, to call her dishonest is unfair.

"There are some fine journalists who work there [at CNN] and risk their lives to report on stories around the world", Roberts added, noting that he used to work for the network. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is also unfair".
