CNN Reporter Stated, Then Corrected Claim about Trump’s China Visit

Jeremy Diamond, CNN’s White House reporter, falsely reported [1] that President Donald Trump broke ranks with his predecessor in not answering questions while visiting China.

Trump did not answer questions due to the Chinese government’s insistence. Diamond took the opportunity to claim Obama took questions in his first trip to China.

However, Diamond had to retract his claim.

Obama did not take questions in his first trip to China either, but he did take questions in his second trip.
