President Donald Trump slightly changed his frequent complaint about "fake news" by complimenting "about 30 percent" of the journalists covering his speech on Friday.

"As I look out on the audience today, I see many young, bright faces," Trump said while speaking at the FBI National Academy in Virginia, according to The Hill. "To them and to many other young Americans watching at home, of which there are many. You see the fake news back there," he added, pointing to the line of news cameras.

"No, actually, some of them are fine people," he said. "About, let's see who's back there? Yeah, about 30 percent."

News organizations such as The Associated Press, Reuters, NPR and Bloomberg sent reporters to the event.

On Monday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused some journalists of "purposely" spreading false information.

"It's not an honest mistake when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false or when you're taking information that hasn't been validated, that hasn't been offered any credibility and that has been continually denied by a number of people, including people with direct knowledge of an incident," Sanders said, according to the Hill.
