Trump Used His Press Conference To Insult BuzzFeed, CNN, And Call Putin’s Interest In Him An ‘Asset Not A Liability’
Donald Trump held his first press conference since July and his first press conference as President-elect of the United States. He seemed to have some conflicts with both BuzzFeed and CNN.
BuzzFeed Published a 35-page dossier of allegations that Russian spies are said to have collected about the president-elect on Tuesday.
Trump took the press conference to insult BuzzFeed saying they are “failing pile of garbage.”

Trump also refused to answer questions from a CNN reporter, calling CNN “fake news.”

Overall the press conference was very disorganized. Trump also went on to consider Russia’s interest in having him as president an “asset not a liability.”

We still don’t know if CNN or BuzzFeed will be allowed in the White House for press conferences during the Trump administration, particularly since Trump press secretary Sean Spicer said that the President-elect won’t follow traditional media rules during his administration.
