Trump takes questions from CNN reporter


WOULD HAVE DIRECTED HIM IF HE DIDN’T DO IT. JIM?>>JUST FOR THE RECORD, WE DON’T HATE YOU. I DON’T HATE YOU. I’LL PASS THAT ALONG.>>ASK JIM HOW HE GOT HIS JOB.>>IF I MAY FOLLOW UP ON SOME OF THE QUESTIONS SO FAR HERE, SIR, AND I DON’T KNOW WHICH MICROPHONE TO HOLD HERE. I’VE GOT THREE.>>YOUR RATINGS AREN’T AS GOOD AS — >>THEY’RE PRETTY GOOD, ACTUALLY. YOU SAID EARLIER THAT WE WIKILEAKS WAS REVEALING INFORMATION ABOUT THE HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN DURING THE ELECTION CYCLE. YOU WELCOMED THAT AT ONE CAMPAIGN RALLY. YOU SAID YOU LOVED WIKILEAKS. AT ANOTHER CAMPAIGN PRESS CONFERENCE YOU CALLED ON THE RUSSIANS TO FIND THE MISSING 30,000 E-MAILS. I’M WONDERING, SIR IF — >>SHE’S ACTUALLY MISSING 33,000 AND THEN IT GOT EXTENDED — >>MAYBE MY NUMBERS ARE OFF — >>NO, BUT I DID SAY 30 BUT IT WAS HIGHER.>>IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH YOU DO NOT HAVE MUCH CREDIBILITY HERE WHEN IT COMES TO LEAKING IF THAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU ENCOURAGED DURING THE CAMPAIGN.>>NO, BUT LET ME DO ONE AT A TIME. DO YOU MIND?>>YES, SIR.>>SO IN ONE CASE YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT HIGHLY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. IN THE OTHER CASE YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT JOHN PODESTA SAYING BAD THINGS ABOUT THE BOSS. I WILL SAY THIS. IF JOHN PODESTA SAID THIS ABOUT ME AND HE WAS WORKING FOR ME, I WOULD HAVE FIRED HIM SO FAST YOUR HEAD WOULD HAVE SPUN. HE SAID TERRIBLE THINGS ABOUT HER. BUT IT WASN’T CLASSIFIED INFORMATION. IN ONE CASE YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT CLASSIFIED. REGARDLESS, IF YOU LOOK AT THE RNC, WE HAD A VERY STRONG — AT MY SUGGESTION AND I GIVE REINCE GREAT CREDIT FOR THIS. AT MY SUGGESTION, AS I KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THIS WORLD, I SAID I WANT A VERY STRONG DEFENSIVE MECHANISM. I DON’T WANT TO BE HACKED. AND WE DID THAT. AND YOU HAVE SEEN THAT THEY TRIED TO HACK US AND THEY FAILED. THE DNC DID NOT DO THAT. AND IF THEY DID IT, THEY WOULD F NOT HAVE BEEN HACKED. BUT THEY WERE AND TERRIBLE THINGS CAME IN. SOME OF THE THINGS — WHEN I HEARD IN OF THOSE THINGS, I PICKED UP THE PAPERS AND SAID THIS WILL BE FRONT PAGE. WASN’T EVEN IN THE PAPERS. AGAIN, IF I HAD THAT HAPPEN TO ME, IT WOULD BE THE BIGGEST STORY IN THE HISTORY OF PUBLISHING OR THE HEAD OF NEWSPAPERS. I WOULD HAVE BEEN THE HEADLINE IN EVERY NEWSPAPER. THINK OF IT. THEY GAVE HER THE QUESTIONS TO A DEBATE AND SHE SHOULD HAVE REPORTED HERSELF. WHY DIDN’T HILLARY CLINTON ANNOUNCE THAT I’M SORRY, BUT I HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE QUESTIONS TO A DEBATE OR’S TOWN HALL, AND I FEEL THAT IT’S INAPPROPRIATE, AND I WANT TO TURN IN CNN FOR NOT DOING A GOOD JOB.>>IF I MAY FOLLOW OUP THAT, SOMETHING JONATHAN KARL WAS ASKING YOU ABOUT. THE LEAKS ARE REAL BUT THE NEWS IS FAKE. I GUESS I DON’T UNDERSTAND. IT SEEMS THAT THERE’S A DISCONNECT THERE. THE INFORMATION COMING FROM THOSE LEAKS IS REAL, THEN HOW CAN THE STORIES BE FAKE?>>THE REPORTING IS FAKE.>>I JUST WANT TO ASK — >>HERE’S THE THING. THE PUBLIC IS — THEY READ NEWSPAPERS. THEY SEE TELEVISION. THEY WATCH. THEY DON’T KNOW IF IT’S TRUE OR FALSE. BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT INVOLVED. I’M INVOLVED. I’VE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE STUFF ALL MY LIFE. BUT I’M INVOLVED. SO I KNOW WHEN YOU ARE TELLING THE TRUTH OR WHEN YOU’RE NOT. I JUST SEE MANY, MANY UNTRUTHFUL THINGS. I’LL TELL YOU WHAT ELSE I SEE. TONE. THE WORD TONE. THE TONE IS SUCH HATRED. I’M REALLY NOT A BAD PERSON, BY THE WAY. BUT THE TONE IS SUCH — I DO GET GOOD RATINGS. YOU HAVE TO ADMIT THAT. THE TONE IS SUCH HATRED. I WATCHED THIS MORNING A COUPLE OF THE NETWORKS. AND “FOX & FRIENDS” IN THE MORNING, THEY ARE VERY HONORABLE PEOPLE. NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD. BECAUSE THEY HIT ME ALSO WHEN I DO SOMETHING WRONG. BUT THEY HAVE THE MOST HONEST MORNING SHOW. THAT’S ALL I CAN SAY. IT’S THE MOST HONEST. BUT THE TONE, JIM. IF YOU LOOK AT THE HATRED. SOMETIMES SOMEBODY GETS — WELL, YOU LOOK AT YOUR SHOW THAT GOES ON AT 10:00 IN THE EVENING. YOU JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THAT SHOW. THAT IS A CONSTANT HIT. THE PANEL IS ALMOST ALWAYS EXCLUSIVE ANTI-TRUMP. THE GOOD NEWS IS HE DOESN’T HAVE GOOD RATINGS, BUT THE PANEL IS ALMOST EXCLUSIVE ANTI-TRUMP. AND THE HATRED AND VENOM COMING FROM HIS MOUTH. THE HATRED COMING FROM OTHER PEOPLE ON YOUR NETWORK. NOW I WILL SAY THIS, I WATCH IT. I SEE IT. I AM AMAZED BY IT. AND I JUST THINK YOU’D BE A LOT BETTER OFF, I HONESTLY DO. THE PUBLIC GETS IT. WHEN I GO TO RALLIES THEY TURN AROUND AND START SCREAMING AT CNN. THEY WANT TO THROW THEIR PLACARDS AT CNN. I THINK YOU’D DO MUCH BETTER BY BEING DIFFERENT. BUT YOU JUST TAKE A LOOK. TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF YOUR SHOWS IN THE MORNING AND THE EVENING. IF A GUEST COMES OUT AND SAYS SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT ME, IT’S BRUTAL. NOW THEY’LL TAKE THIS NEWS CONFERENCE, I’M ACTUALLY HAVING A VERY GOOD TIME. BUT THEY’LL TAKE THIS NEWS CONFERENCE. THAT’S THE WAY I WON. I USED TO GIVE YOU A NEWS CONFERENCE EVERY TIME I MADE A SPEECH WHICH WAS LIKE EVERY DAY. I WON WITH NEWS CONFERENCE AND PROBABLY SPEECHES. I CERTAINLY DIDN’T WIN BY PEOPLE LISTENING TO YOU PEOPLE. THAT’S FOR SURE. BU BUT I’M HAVING A GOOD TIME. TOMORROW THEY’LL SAY TRUMP RANTS AND RAVES AT THE PRESS. I’M JUST TELLING YOU. YOU’RE DISHONEST PEOPLE. BUT I’M NOT RANTING AND RAVING. I LOVE THIS. I’M HAVING A GOOD TIME DOING IT. TOMORROW THE HEADLINES ARE GOING TO BE, DONALD TRUMP RANTS AND RAVES. I’M NOT RANTING AND RAVING.>>IF I MAY JUST ONE MORE FOLLOW-UP.>>SHOULD I LET HIM HAVE A LITTLE MORE TIME BECAUSE OF THIS? PETER, SHOULD I LET HIM HAVE — SIT DOWN. SIT DOWN.>>WE’LL GET IT.>>JUST BECAUSE THE ATTACK OF FAKE NEWS AND ATTACKING OUR NETWORK, I WANT TO ASK YOU, SIR — >>I’M CHANGING IT FROM FAKE NEWS. VERY FAKE NEWS.>>BUT AREN’T YOU — >>GO AHEAD.>>REAL NEWS, MR. PRESIDENT.>>AND YOU’RE NOT RELATED TO OUR NEW — >>I AM NOT RELATED, SIR. I DO LIKE THE SOUND OF SECRETARY ACOSTA.>>I LOOKED AT THAT NAME. WAIT A MINUTE. IS THERE ANY RELATION?>>I’M SURE YOU CHECKED THAT OUT.>>THEY SAID, NO, SIR. I SAID GO BACK AND CHECK THE FAMILY TREE.>>AREN’T YOU CONCERNED, SIR, THAT YOU ARE UNDERMINING THE PEOPLE’S FAITH IN THE FIRST AMENDMENT, FREEDOM OF THE FPRES, WHEN YOU CALL STORIES YOU DON’T LIKE FAKE NEWS. WHY DON’T YOU JUST SAY IT’S A STORY I DON’T LIKE.>>I DO THAT.>>YOU’RE UNDERMINING CONFIDENCE IN OUR NEWS MEDIA.>>YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THAT EXCEPT THIS. SEE, I KNOW WHEN I SHOULD GET GOOD AND WHEN I SHOULD GET BAD. SOMETIMES THEY’LL SAY, WOW, THAT’S GOING TO BE A GREAT STORY. AND I’LL GET KILLED. I KNOW WHAT’S GOOD AND BAD. I’D BE A PRETTY GOOD REPORTER. NOT AS GOOD AS YOU. I KNOW WHAT’S GOOD. I KNOW WHAT’S BAD. WHEN THEY CHANGE IT AND MAKE IT REALLY BAD, SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE POSITIVE. SOMETIMES SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE POSITIVE, THEY’LL MAKE OKAY. THEY’LL EVEN MAKE IT NEGATIVE. SO I UNDERSTAND IT. BECAUSE I’M THERE. I KNOW WHAT WAS SAID, WHO WAS SAYING IT. I’M THERE. SO IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. LOOK. I WANT TO SEE AN HONEST PRESS. I STARTED OFF TODAY BY SAYING THAT IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO THE PUBLIC TO GET AN HONEST PRESS. THE PRESS — THE PUBLIC DOESN’T BELIEVE YOU PEOPLE ANYMORE. MAYBE I HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THAT. I DON’T KNOW. BUT THEY DON’T BELIEVE YOU. IF YOU WERE STRAIGHT AND REALLY TOLD IT LIKE IT IS, AS HOWARD COSELL USED TO SAY. OF COURSE, HE HAD SOME QUESTIONS ALSO. BUT IF YOU WERE STRAIGHT, I WOULD BE YOUR BIGGEST FAN IN THE WORLD, INCLUDING BAD STORIES ABOUT ME. BUT AS YOU GO, AS AN EXAMPLE, YOU’RE CNN, IT’S STORY AFTER STORY AFTER STORY IS BAD. I WON. I WON. AND THE OTHER THING, CHAOS. THERE’S ZERO CHAOS. WE ARE RUNNING — THIS IS A F FINE-TUNED MACHINE. REINCE IS DOING A GOOD JOB. HALF HIS JOB IS PUTTING OUT LIES BY THE PRESS. I SAID TO HIM YESTERDAY, THIS WHOLE RUSSIA SCAM THAT YOU ARE BUILDING SO THAT YOU DON’T TALK ABOUT THE REAL SUBJECT WHICH IS ILLEGAL LEAKS. BUT I WATCHED HIM YESTERDAY WORKING SO HARD TO TRY AND GET THAT STORY PROPER. AND I’M SAYING HERE’S MY CHIEF OF STAFF. A REALLY GOOD GUY. DID A PHENOMENAL JOB AT RNC. WON THE ELECTION. WON THE PRESIDENCY. WE GOT SOME SENATORS, ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, YOU TAKE A LOOK. HE’S DONE A GREAT JOB. AND I SAID, YOU TAKE A LOOK AT REINCE. HE’S WORKING SO HARD JUST PUTTING OUT FIRES THAT ARE FAKE FIRES. THEY ARE FAKE. THEY ARE NOT TRUE. AND ISN’T THAT A SHAME BECAUSE HE’D RATHER BE WORKING ON HEALTH CARE. HE’D RATHER BE WORKING ON TAX REFORM, JIM. I MEAN THAT. I WOULD BE YOUR BIGGEST FAN IN THE WORLD IF YOU TREATED ME RIGHT. I UNDERSTAND THERE’S A CERTAIN BIAS BY JEFF OR SOMEBODY, FOR WHATEVER REASON. BUT — AND I UNDERSTAND THAT. BUT YOU’VE GOT TO BE AT LEAST A LITTLE BIT FAIR. AND THAT’S WHY THE PUBLIC SEES IT. THEY SEE IT. THEY SEE IT’S NOT FAIR. YOU TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF YOUR SHOWS AND YOU SEE THE

  1. CNN (Jim Acosta)don’t waste the president’s time with stupid and irrelevant questions. Actually do your job good for once.

  2. CNN you’re a disgrace. And so is Jim Acosta who speaks on your behalf. I didn’t even vote for Trump but he has done a pretty damn good job so far. Quit reporting any little negative thing you can find and report the good things. Report the truth. I hope CNN goes off air for good. It’s a disgrace to be this way to the people. We want good truthful news not your fake news with all your fake people with all this hate.

  3. If you’re reading this report this channel this fake news and get them off YouTube monetizing this fake disgraceful sh*t

  4. Disgusting is scabs in the direction CNN chose to go the president is right it's just an all-out hostile Blitz against him there is no fear reporting over as CNN

  5. Sorry but even as a Democrat, CNN does prove Trump is correct when he calls CNN fake news with clips like these. Acosta was a very rude and unproffesional "reporter", Acosta is a heckler and more and more people are siding with Trump, specially when CNN defends such shameful people like Acosta.

  6. Good thing about Trump is He is very Direct. No double meaning answers as normally politicians do. Either you like him or not. But I like his approach.

  7. Dear CNN/Acosta/and 360 and all the guys giving thier life at the front line in DC WH.
    Ive a fast solution for reporters. Why dont you change your last name? get a white last name.

  8. This man is a joke. He thinks that just because he says something … it is truth. I see through his bullshit. Those that follow blindly & repeat his nonsense are so blind!

  9. This is very true every guest that goes on CNN and supports Trump is fried on there. They are afraid to defend Trump they end up joining them to condemn Trump. So Trump is right!

  10. Acosta is bullied because he only can get 30% of the interviews with 80 other reporters , poor asshole. The world hates this doosh bag

  11. Trump talks like a dude on drugs!! His skills at public speaking are hilarious!!!!!!! Wtf is he talking about?!!!! I'm having a good time!!! Lmao!!!!

  12. good stuff I wish CNN would leave Trump alone so he can do his job that he's not getting paid for they are a bunch of dumbasses and need to wake up!!! that's right he donates his checks and still has to put up with their s*** that's just not right could you imagine going to work everyday and people bitching about you even though you're not getting paid. what a bunch of losers

  13. Jim Acosta and the rest of the press, except for propaganda machine Faux News, doesn't let Trump get away with his incessant lies, falsehoods, conspiracy theories, and misinformation. The man is an absolute moron who rambles incoherently and rarely makes sense. His thoughts are jumbled, his vocabulary is extremely limited, his knowledge of even the most basic things is negligent.

  14. Prime example of Trump's stupidity and incoherency. "The leaks are real, the news is fake."
    How can the news be fake when it's covering the leaks that are real? Makes no sense. He's a supreme idiot.

  15. Look at this. Trump says “CNNs” tone is such hatred. Caption “Media’s” tone is such hatred. 🤣

  16. Before you become a reporter
    First become an adult, don't be rude
    I watch Jim acosta asking question to Trump
    And the way is so disgusting.

  17. Cnn afraid to read the comments no one fucking likes you snowflakes shut down your channel. You fucking pathetic fucks iv watched you guys littelry make fun of other people like alex jones some shit he says may not be true but he speaks alot of truth and yet you call him a lier fuck you cnn you can take your fake news and shove it up your fucking ass

  18. TRUMP TO MEDIA? Are you kidding me? It should say TRUMP TO CNN, but thats just another attempt to manipulate the news in your favour.

  19. Poor cnn 🙁 your comments are filled with hate. It's really fun y what people are saying, and y'all definitely did this yourselves. Maybe fox yourselves?

  20. I can't stand Trump. He's such a little whiney, narcissistic little orange piece of shit. He's a fucking lunatic. How tf can leaks be real but the story be fake?

  21. CNN was ok before Trump was president but after he became president its terribel to watch CNN Trump negavity all day

  22. so trump- is it not important for your country to get an honest president- opposed to your wasting their tax money on your many golf trips, multiple investigations into your crime family, your the fake billionaire but not only the worst president ever- you might be in contention to win the most despicable person on earth- cant wait till you die

  24. CNN is fake news that’s why people make parody of little Brian and the turkey Jim or abillio Acosta like his Cuban pay check says. We should deport Jim

  25. Our great president has a point. CNN, I haven't watched you in over a year because you are telling lies about our president. If you don't want President Trump undermining the credibility of your news station then for God sakes stop lying. Mr. President, God bless you for not tolerating CNN'S shenanigans. A strong economy, great stock market, low unemployment. Trump 2020!

  26. I laugh when I saw: "Trump to media: public donesn't believe you anymore". I should be "Trump to CNN: public…". CNN twisting what trump said again.

  27. So what do you want CNN to report when you lie, when you say grab pussy, when you paid mistress and porn star to quiet their story, when you side with putin demoralize your intelligence, when you call country that you don't like shithole, when you go and get dirt from the Russian against your opponent, when it's raining and you let your wife and kid standing in the rain, when you call minorities Congress women to go back to where they came from, when you call athletics that are not white son of a bitch but by the way white athletics also knew down too if you blind n didn'tsee it, etc. You the want that are fake. We have a dictator want to be in the WH. But gotta handed to him cause he's a crown all his life. Should of stay where he is and enjoy all the miss pageants.

  28. Dump you are a horrible, horrible so call president evern your speech was cold and inhuman no sympathy in your voice just cold and your words was empty. You dont know how to be president or a leader.america has no leader.
