Trump Attacks CNN, NBC in Joint Press Conference With British Prime Minister

WATCH: Trump Flat Out Refuses Question from CNN's Acosta at Presser: 'Let's Go to a Real Network'

On Friday, the US president upheld his vendetta against CNN when he denied a question from Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, and instead devoted a good 20 seconds during his United Kingdom press conference with Prime Minister Theresa May to calling the media company "fake news". "I don't take questions from CNN".

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. I know Kristen Welker of NBC. Gold stars all around for that sterling reporting job. "John Roberts from Fox, lets go to a real network". "Let's go to- Let's go to a real network", said Trump.

Roberts, a chief White House correspondent, also stood by Welker, who was attacked by the president when she asked him if he was giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the "upper hand". "She is honest as the day is long".

The President's trip to the United Kingdom comes after the annual North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels, where he demanded allies pay their fair share of the defense burden.

Trump looked back over his shoulder and gave Acosta the shortest sound bite in presidential history.
