"They have been condemned", Trump responded, "they have been condemned".

Acosta then asked for a press conference on the issue.

And why are we not having a press conference today?

"We had a press conference, we just had a press conference", President Trump said. Members of his cabinet were still on hand. The views expressed in this article are those of just the author. After hearing another question from Acosta, President Trump told Acosta that he was "fake news".

"Can we ask you some more questions then, sir?"

Nearly seven months into his presidency, Trump's public denunciations of "fake news" - a phrase he utilized to push back against damaging reports during his presidential campaign - have continued in earnest.

"He felt very comfortable espousing some views that are nearly white nationalist-lite in that he was complaining, bemoaning the removal of Confederate statues across the country and asking whether or not George Washington or Thomas Jefferson are next", Acosta told CNN host Wolf Blitzer. But when he was asked why he wasn't taking questions, he took the opportunity to take another swipe at CNN's Jim Acosta.

"They've been condemned. They have been condemned", Trump said, referring to his remarks earlier in the day. He was asked by reporters why he waited so long to condemn hate groups. That was the voice, obviously, the voice of Jim Acosta, our senior White House correspondent, shouting the questions to the President why didn't you condemn the racist clashes in Charlottesville earlier.

"Haven't you spread a lot of fake news yourself sir?"

Finally, someone said it to his face!
