CNN’s Poppy Harlow Claps Back at Trump Slamming ‘Fake News’ Summit Critics: ‘Here’s a Fact…’
CNN’s Poppy Harlow smacked Donald Trump on Tuesday for crying “fake news” over the criticism he has received over his summit with Vladimir Putin.
The president continues to face bipartisan disapproval for yesterday’s capitulation to Russia, but the way Trump sees it, his last few days of diplomacy in Europe couldn’t have gone any better. Of course, since its a day of the week that ends with “y,” Trump is bashing the “fake news” while saying that he had better meetings with Putin than he did with America’s NATO allies.
While I had a great meeting with NATO, raising vast amounts of money, I had an even better meeting with Vladimir Putin of Russia. Sadly, it is not being reported that way – the Fake News is going Crazy!

Harlow saw this, and she dryly noted in response that the media has been presenting Trump’s remarks, exactly as he made them, over the last 24 hours.
“Here’s a fact. The news played exactly for you what the president said on the world stage. You saw it here yesterday just about 24 hours ago. That’s what the president said.”
