President Donald Trump distanced himself from the blistering interview he gave The Sun, blaming "fake news" for misrepresenting his words in a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May Friday. "Of course that's coming from NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN", he said, adding that her question was "dishonest reporting". "Fortunately we tend to record stories now so we have it for your enjoyment if you would like it. It's called fake news and we solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument".

He was asked about comments he had made to The Sun in which he criticized the Prime Minister's handling of Brexit.

"Something happened at the press conference that I think needs addressing". Acosta several times asked if he could pose a question, but Trump instead called on Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts.

Interestingly, the man who heads "real network" Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, also owns the "fake news" Sun.

"I don't take questions from CNN", Trump said, even though he did take a question from CNN's Jeremy Diamond on Thursday.

Pres. Trump denies interview with The Sun was critical of Prime Minister Theresa May.

At one moment in the press conference on Friday, CNN's Jim Acosta attempted to ask Trump a question.

Trump became unhappy with NBC reporter Kristen Welker after being asked if his criticisms of USA allies help Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"To say the President called us "fake news" with any serious intent is, well... fake news", the Sun concluded.

Trump: "See, that's such dishonest reporting", he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together.

Roberts issued a statement through Fox News defending Welker saying, "She is honest as the day is long".

Later in the press conference, Trump slammed reporter Kristen Welker after a question about Russian Federation.

"No, no", Trump responded, calling the network "fake news". "There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world".
