During President Trump’s marathon news conference on Thursday, there was a lengthy duel with CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta over whether CNN hates the President, CNN’s ratings, WikiLeaks, fake news, and who to blame for the American public’s lack of confidence in the news media.

Trump had alluded to CNN throughout the event before arriving at Acosta. When it was his turn, the CNN correspondent stated: “Just for the record, we don't hate you. I don't hate you. I just want to pass that along.”
