The spat between CNN and President Trump reached a new high with the network’s decision to boycott the annual White House Christmas party for the media.
“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”
Trump has made CNN the poster child for fake news since taking office through his constant tweets about the network.
.@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!

The White House wasn’t exactly broken up about CNN’s decision.
