Tom DeLay: I Approve of Trump Blowing Off CNN

Tom DeLay: I Approve of Trump Blowing Off CNN

Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay took a blistering shot at CNN on Friday, calling President Donald Trump’s refusal to call on a reporter from the cable news network in London "a great moment."

"I loved the fact that the president wouldn’t take a question from CNN. It was a great moment and it just shows what people are talking about -- they’re trying to find this nitpicking little stuff … to put Trump in the worst of light."

"But they can’t do it because he’s trumping them over and over again and showing the fact that he’s in control, he’s leader of the world and we have a great relationship with England."

DeLay’s remarks come after Trump twice refused to take a question from CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a joint press conference Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May held at Chequers in Buckinghamshire, England, on Friday.

"No, no. CNN is fake news. "I don’t take questions from CNN," Trump told Acosta, who’s network he has long had a beef with. "I don’t take questions from CNN."

"Let’s go to a real network," the president added, pointing to John Roberts of Fox News Channel.

"Well, we’re a real network, too, Mr. President," Acosta replied.

DeLay called the meeting between Trump and May a success, despite a report in The Sun newspaper ran headlined, "Trump’s Brexit Blast: Donald Trump told Theresa May how to do Brexit ‘but she wrecked it’ — and says the US trade deal is off."

"Trump even mentioned because of that Sun ‘fake news’ article as he called it, he apologized to Teresa May and said so at the press conference and she took it very lightly and said, ‘oh, it’s the press,’’’ DeLay said.

"I think it was a great exhibition of the relations between the United Kingdom and the United States and everything is hunky dory."
