US President-elect Donald Trump replied a barrage of questions raging from his relations with Putin to the latest report that Moscow may be blackmailing him that he called 'fake news' and criticized Buzzfeed and CNN for running it.
At the very beginning of the conference Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer called BuzzFeed and CNN' s report “outrageous” and “irresponsible” and “a sad and pathetic attempt to get clicks.” .
“This political witch-hunt by some in the media is based on flimsy reporting, and is shameful and disgraceful,” he said.
Trump started his speech by thanking the news organizations that "looked at that nonsense that was released by maybe the intelligence agencies – which would be a tremendous blot on them. The thing like that should have never been written – and rejected it.”
“A group of my opponents got together, sick people, and they got that crap together,” Trump said.
