Fox News chief White House correspondent John Roberts criticized President Donald Trump on Friday for calling competing networks dishonest and "fake news" during a United Kingdom press conference. [The Sun] didn't put in what I said about the prime minister.

Citing his decision to expel 60 Russian diplomats as a favor to Britain over its claims of an alleged nerve agent attack in Salisbury in March, Trump said that his tough stance on Russia has gone largely unappreciated because "the fake news doesn't want to talk about it".

DeLay called the meeting between Trump and May a success, despite a report in The Sun newspaper ran headlined, "Trump's Brexit Blast: Donald Trump told Theresa May how to do Brexit "but she wrecked it" - and says the USA trade deal is off".

In the 28-minute-long interview, Trump made comments critical of British prime minister Theresa May's Brexit plan.

Trump also derided two other news outlets, NBC and CNN, during the joint press conference.

Former Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay took a blistering shot at CNN on Friday, calling President Donald Trump's refusal to call on a reporter from the cable news network in London "a great moment".

"Mr. President since you attacked CNN can I ask you a question? Let's go to a real network". "It's called fake news and we solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument".

"Fortunately, we tend to record stories now...we record when we deal with reporters. There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world". "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair".

When it became clear that the president wasn't going to entertain a question from him, I proceeded with my question, as did my fellow colleagues in the press corps. He instead answered John Roberts from Fox News. "Of course, it happens to be NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN". Lesson for the kids out there: "no one should ever try to do the right thing with the expectation it will ever be reciprocated". She's as honest as the day is long.

In a statement, the Sun said it stood by its reporting. You can watch Trump's comments below.
