At a joint press conference with President Andrzej Duda Poland, Trump took questions from reporters on The Daily Mail and MSNBC. But that apparently was not good enough for Acosta, who is no stranger to training with Trump and White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
“Trump finally held a press conference abroad, but took a question from a fellow journalist and then attacked CNN as” false news “said Acosta, who added. Is this not a “false press conference” to pose a question to a journalist who is essentially an ally of the White House? ”
Acosta apparently referred to David Martosko, the American political editor The Daily Mail, who was considered last month for a concert at the Trump communication service, but was removed from his account.
But social media observers quickly criticized snorky posts Acosta, noting that the Obama administration has not stopped helping journalists and columnists suggest that former President Barack Obama and his team systematically call reporters friends.
“So, according to this logic, I had the whole press conference for the last 8 years #fakenews Jim?” Wrote Donald Trump Jr ..
White House press secretary, former Bush Ari Fleischer said, “Jim – take care of guessing how many questions I had with the reporters who joined Obama in WH?”
Radio operator Steve Deace picked up the line: “Jim, more than two dozen journalists” went to work for Obama WH, including the former WH spokesman. ”
A section of the Atlantic of 2013 pointed out that Rick Stengel, general manager of the time, was “at least the 24 journalist who works for the Obama administration.” Former White House press secretary Jay Carney Obama had also worked for Time as head of the Washington office, which Deace reports.

“The other thing that was a” false news “President Trump is when he said:” Well, I still hear that there are 17 intelligence agencies that say Russia is despised in the elections, I think it’s only three or four, “Acosta said.
“Where does this number come from? Where does this number” three or four “come from? … My suspicion is that if we go to the administration and this question, I am not so sure that you will get an answer.
However, there is an answer.
The New York Times – and other outlets – had reported that for months “17 US intelligence agencies” agreed that Russia orchestrated cyber attacks before the election.
