Donald Trump was extremely furious that Buzzfeed published a 35-page document suggesting that President Vladimir Putin had spied on him for five years.
He heavily criticised BuzzFeed for publishing the document calling the news outlet a “failing pile of garbage” and the president-elect even said there will be ‘consequences’ for Buzzfeed for publishing highly-damaging and unsubstantiated accusations.
When CNN’s White House correspondent attempted to ask a question, Mr Trump just repetitively shut him down, he kept telling him: “Your organisation is terrible. Quiet. He’s asking a question, don’t be rude. Don’t be rude. Your organisation is terrible. I’m not going to give you a question. I’m not going to give you a question.” When the reporter continued to pursue his question, Mr Trump eventually said: “You are fake news.”
Mr Trump later tweeted: “We had a great News Conference at Trump Tower today. A couple of FAKE NEWS organizations were there but the people truly get what’s going on.”
