At a press conference on Friday, Trump dismissed The Sun newspaper as an example of "fake news", hours after giving an exclusive interview to the same paper for its Friday cover story.
Citing his decision to expel 60 Russian diplomats as a favor to Britain over its claims of an alleged nerve agent attack in Salisbury in March, Trump said that his tough stance on Russia has gone largely unappreciated because "the fake news doesn't want to talk about it". "I don't take questions from CNN". "Let's go to a real network", Trump said, shutting down Acosta. "Lets go to a real network".
During his opening remarks, President Trump stressed that the relationship with the United Kingdom is better than ever and backed Prime Minister May's handling of Brexit.
Throughout the press conference Trump praised May effusively, calling her "an incredible woman" doing a "great job".
'Will you ask Putin to stay out of US elections?' he yelled. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair".
In his interview with The Sun, Trump slammed May over her "soft" Brexit plan, which has put May's standing as the head of the Conservative Party in jeopardy.

Roberts also referenced his own previous role at CNN.
"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.
Trump: "See, that's such dishonest reporting", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together.
The network's news site, FoxNews.com, avoided mentioning Trump's labeling of the Sun interview in its account of the news conference.
"I said very nice things about her", he said.
"To say the President called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well. fake news", The Sun added.
Although the Sun has been criticized for its journalism in the past, Cooper said, "Trump's explanation that comments in the interview were "fake news" was greeted with derision by British journalists". You can watch Trump's comments below.
