Donald Trump Ignores Shouted CNN Question About Campaign’s Contact with Russia

Following his Wednesday joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Donald Trump ignored a shouted question from a CNN reporter about the New York Times report on his campaign aides’ alleged contact with Russia intelligence.

“Mr. President, are you answering questions about your associates’ contact with the Russians during the campaign?” asked CNN’s Jim Acosta. Evidently he was not; Trump shook hands with Netanyahu, smiled and waved, and left the stage.

Only two American outlets received questions at the press conference: the Christian Broadcasting Network and conservative outlet Townhall. The limited questioning came after Trump only took questions from Sinclar Broadcasting and The Daily Caller in a Monday briefing with Canadian Prime Minsiter Justin Trudeau.
