A lot were surprised with Donald Trump’s new accusation to the media saying that the press is covering up reports of terrorist attacks. The Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway came to the POTUS’ defense, but CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t buy it. The CNN journalist interviewed the political activist and things got pretty intense between the two. An exchange of words happened, and everything just fiery.

Jake Tapper reacts to Donald Trump’s claims about the media

“You’ve seen what happened in Paris, and Nice. All over Europe, it’s happening. It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported,” Donald Trump said while speaking at the U.S.

Central Command on Monday. “And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.” The businessman-turned-president accused the press of not reporting everything about the terror attacks while playing CNN footage of said events.

Conway then defended the business magnate, saying that the state leader doesn’t really mean that every unpleasant incident is under-reported.

“That’s a lovely spin, but that’s not what he was saying, Kellyanne,” Jake Tapper said. “He was saying the media does not cover these stories... it’s offensive given that CNN and other media organizations have reporters in danger right now in war zones covering ISIS.”

The Chief Washington Correspondent for CNN then addressed the president’s claim that the media is delivering fake news.

“Are we fake news, Kellyanne? Is CNN fake news?” he asked.

“No, I don’t think CNN is fake news,” she said. “I think there are some reports elsewhere, in print, on TV, on radio, in conversation that are not well-researched and are sometimes based on falseness.”

“How about the president’s statements that are false?” Jake Tapper said.

He then revealed Donald Trump’s statements one by one, tagging them all as fake.

“Like the murder rate is the highest its been in almost half a century? False. How about the fact that the media doesn’t report on terrorist attacks? False. I’m talking about the president of the United States saying things that are not true, demonstrably not true.

That is important.”
