Donald Trump, the President-Elect, went all-out on Buzzfeed and CNN for their reports on his alleged (not substantiated) ties to Russia. Here are some of the notable quotes from the press conference yesterday, as reported by CNBC:
Trump called BuzzFeed a “failing pile of garbage,” arguing the online media outlet “will suffer the consequences.” A day earlier, BuzzFeed published a 35-page dossier of unsubstantiated allegations of Russian information-gathering on Trump.
At the news conference, Trump took CNN to task for “going out of their way to build it up,” then refused to take a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta.
“Your organization is terrible,” the president-elect told Acosta at the nationally televised news conference at Trump Tower. “I am not going to give you a question, you’re fake news.”
