Surprise! Trump Praises CNN’s Jim Acosta After London ‘Takedown'

President Donald Trump attacked

In the interview, Trump said he advised her, but "she didn't listen to me".

During a press conference in England the day before with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump refused to take a question from CNN's Jim Acosta.

Jake Tapper was set to interview National Security Adviser John Bolton on Sunday's State of the Union, but the White House chose to cancel the appearance. "Then the president attacked CNN during his United Kingdom presser, and our WH correspondent tried to ask a question", he tweeted.

Media solidarity has become an issue with White House briefings lately, as some journalists suggest that reporters should band together to prevent press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders from changing the subject to avoid answering questions. "Instead of rewarding bad behavior, we made a decision to reprioritize the TV appearances for administration officials".

She wrote that "a CNN reporter disrespected" Trump and "instead of rewarding bad behavior, we made a decision to reprioritize the TV appearances for administration officials".

At the press conference, he said he has "a lot of respect for the prime minister" and that whatever she does with Brexit is "OK with me". He then called on John Roberts of Fox News, which he called a "real network".

Acosta's CNN colleague Brian Stelter pointed out that Acosta defended the network after Trump called it "fake news". Roberts was criticised for not defending CNN's Acosta during the press conference.

"CNN is fake news". At first, Trump ignored his request and proceeded to ask Roberts for a question. Excerpts were set to air on CBS' Face the Nation today.

"I think the question's silly", Bolton responded.

"Well, we're a real network too, sir", Acosta retorted before Roberts began to ask his question. "CNN is fake news", the president said while Acosta continued to try and ask a question. "Lets go to a real network".

John McCain and many Democrats have called for President Trump to cancel his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in light of the indictments.
