After the reporter asked Trump a question about tensions between him and other leaders at the G7 summit, the president asked what network he was from."Who are you with out of curiosity?" Trump asked the reporter, who replied that he was fr om CNN."I figured," Trump said. "Fake News CNN. The worst."Trump then began to say that he "could tell by the question," before clarifying that he did not previously know the reporter's affiliation."I have no idea you're with CNN," he said.

Trump calls ' fake ' news media CNN, NBC and New York Times the ' enemy of the American people' - then deletes his tweet to add two MORE networks. NBC' s Peter Alexander questioned Trump at the press conference that his electoral college win was the biggest since Ronald Reagan.

President Trump continued his attacks on the news media on Friday by tweeting his disdain for a number of media outlets and accusing them of being the “ enemy of the American people.” So now he' s resorting to FAKE TWEETS.

President Trump on Wednesday declared that the nation's "biggest enemy is the Fake News," particularly NBC and CNN for their coverage of the North Korea summit.

"So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN," Trump tweeted.

"They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have "begged" for this deal-looked like war would break out. Our Country's biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!"

Tuesday's summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim Jong Un was the first ever meeting of a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader.

During the meeting, Trump and Kim signed an agreement on denuclearization, with details to be worked out in subsequent negotiations. On Tuesday, Kim reportedly accepted Trump's invitation to visit Washington, D.C.

CNN and NBC have long been Trump targets for attacks on the media along with The New York Times and The Washington Post. His tweet on Tuesday echoed a comment made last year, in which he called the news media "the enemy of the American people."

The agreement signed on Tuesday reaffirmed Pyongyang's commitment to denuclearization while committing the U.S. to unspecified security guarantees for North Korea. Exactly what those security guarantees are remains murky, but Trump announced that he would suspend joint military exercises with South Korea.

Pyongyang has long claimed that those military drills are essentially rehearsals for an invasion of the North.

The document signed on Tuesday gives virtually no details beyond a stated commitment to denuclearize, a promise North Korea has made - and broken - many times in the past.
