Donald Trump Uses Black History Month Event to Attack CNN: ‘I Don’t Watch Fake News’

President Donald Trump paused during a White House event honoring Black History Month Wednesday to take a shot at CNN, calling it “fake news” and “hostile” to his supporters.

Trump went around the table thanking many of his African-American supporters, including GOP strategist and CNN contributor Paris Dennard. “Paris has done an amazing job in a very hostile CNN community. He’s all by himself, seven people and Paris. I’ll take Paris over the seven,” he joked.

“But I don’t watch CNN so I don’t get to see you as much,” he added. “I don’t like watching fake news.”

“Fox has treated me very nice,” Trump said in an aside, looking for their camera in the room. “Wherever Fox is, thank you.”
