Trump Insults CNN Reporter, Calling Network 'Fake News'

Donald Trump refused to call on CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press conference Wednesday.

"Don't be rude," Trump said. "No, I'm not going to give you a question. I'm not going to give you a question. You are fake news. Go ahead."

Trump and his team have criticized CNN for reporting on unverified allegations that Russia may have compromising info on Trump.

Buzzfeed also faced criticism for publishing a 35-page document containing unverified and false reports about Russian intel on Trump.

"As far as Buzzfeed, which is a failing pile of garbage, I think they're going to suffer the consequences," Trump said.
