(CNSNews.com) – President Donald Trump called CNN “fake news” during a meeting Wednesday with African-American leaders on African American History month at the White House.

“And Paris [Dennard] has done an amazing job in a very hostile CNN community. He’s done—he’s all by himself with seven people and Paris. I’ll take Paris over the seven. But I don’t watch CNN, so I don’t get to see you as much. I don’t like watching fake news,” Trump said, “but Fox has treated me very nice wherever Fox is, thank you.”

 

 

Trump was praising GOP strategist and CNN contributor Paris Dennard.

“I’m proud to honor this heritage and will be honoring it more and more. Folks at the table in almost all cases have been great friends and supporters and Darrell. I met Darrell when he was defending me on television, and the people that were on the other side of the argument didn’t have a chance, right?” Trump said, referring to Pastor Darrell Scott of the New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
