Donald Trump has not been in good standing with the media ever since he kicked off his campaign for president. During his most recent press conference, Trump clashed with an international reporter.

Trump and media

Since his inauguration last week, Donald Trump has signed several executive orders, many of which have come under fire from the mainstream media. The executive order signed to start construction on the border wall received such backlash that Mexico cancelled the planned meeting with the former host of "The Apprentice." Despite this, UK Prime Minister Theresa May came to the White House on Friday afternoon to meet with the new president to discuss a variety of issues.

After the meeting, the two took part in a joint press conference that quickly took an interesting turn, as reported by Mediaite on January 27.

With Donald Trump and Teresa May standing side by side at joint podiums, the billionaire real estate mogul took a question from Tom Newton Dunn, a reporter for The Sun in the United Kingdom. "You said you would help us with a Brexit trade deal, you said you would stand by us with NATO," Dunn said to Trump, before asking, How can the British Prime Minister believe you...because you have been known in the past to change your position on things." Not stopping there, Dunn praised May for being "hard-working," while smearing Trump as a "brash TV extrovert."

Attempting to laugh off the question, Donald Trump replied, "I am not as brash as you might think." The new president went on to say that he got along "very well" with May, explaining to Dunn, "I think Brexit is going to be a wonderful thing for your country." Trump was a vocal supporter of Brexit and the right-wing movement in Europe, with his own election win being compared to the vote in question.

Moving forward

After one week as the commander in chief, Donald Trump has been accused of compromising United States relationships with foreign countries, most notably Mexico. While it's unknown how the Trump administration will impact the relationship between the United States and countries around the world, it appears that foreign media, like the domestic press, aren't big fans of the former reality TV host.
