During a press conference at the G-7 summit in Charlevoix, President Donald Trump got peeved when a reporter asking him a difficult question was from CNN.
The reporter brought up the tensions between the United States and allies, noting the perception he’s “leaving here early to go meet for more friendlier talks with Kim Jong Un in Singapore.”
He asked, “Do you view it the same way and do you view the U.S. alliance system shifting under your presidency?”
Trump’s first response was to ask, “Who are you with, out of curiosity?”
The reporter responded, “CNN.”
“I figured,” Trump said. “Fake news CNN, the worst.”
He went on to brag about how his “level of relationship is a 10” with the other G-7 leaders, emphasizing he doesn’t blame them but rather past American leaders over bad trade deals.
And as he continued, Trump made a point of jabbing CNN again, saying, “The relationship that I’ve had is great, so you can tell that to your fake friends at CNN.”
