United States President Donald Trump's feud with CNN is not going to come to an end anytime soon if his recent comments about the network are anything to go by. The President made comments at the joint press conference in Warsaw with the Polish President on Thursday. The comments came soon after CNN revealed that they tracked down the Reddit user who had made the original GIF showing the President taking out a person with the CNN logo superimposed over his head. The network might also have forced him to apologize by threatening to leak his personal details.

CNN 'fake news' and 'dishonest'

CNN's act of actually tracking down the Reddit user responsible for making the infamous GIF has attracted a lot of bad press since it amounts to nothing short of online bullying and invasion of privacy. Hence, it was only a matter of time before the President was going to address the network's actions, but no one expected him to do so during a state visit. Then again, it is often quite hard to figure out what the President might do next.

Trump said, "I think what CNN did was unfortunate for them, as you know now they have some pretty serious problems. They have been fake news for a long time. They have been covering me in a very, very dishonest way.” The President went on to say that it seems that CNN has taken the tweet a bit too seriously and their subsequent behavior might actually end up hurting the network pretty badly.

CNN's denials appear insincere

CNN published their story last week in which they described how they tracked down the Reddit user by using the network's considerable resources, and it looked like a case of the worst kind of corporate bullying.

However, the network must not have realized the sort of backlash their actions would attract. Although CNN did not publish the Reddit user's name, it leaves very little to the imagination when one goes through the long-winded apology that the user published on Reddit.

CNN has however stated that the network did not coerce or blackmail the user in any way, and any such assertion is untrue.

The network has been in the bad books of the President for some time, and it reached a peak last month when CNN had to retract a story related to the Trump administration's links to Russia for not following the editorial standards of the organization. During the same press conference, the President went after NBC as well. He said that he might have made the network a lot of money with his show "The Apprentice," but NBC had been as "bad" as CNN.
