President Trump’s post-summit press conference in Hanoi left American journalists shaking with rage, after the president did the unthinkable: answered a question from a RUSSIAN news site.
Speaking to reporters following a largely results-free peace summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the president took questions from a smattering of American and international reporters, before picking a journalist from Sputnik, who asked Trump whether the two leaders discussed possible US nuclear inspections in North Korea.
“We’d be able to do that very easily,” Trump replied. “We have that setup so we would be able to do that very easily.”
To American journalists on Twitter, however, Trump’s answer didn’t matter. The mere fact that Trump even spoke to Sputnik was news in itself.
“Russian propaganda outlet Sputnik just asked Trump a question,” complained Yahoo News correspondent Hunter Walker, before sharing a story bashing the Russian news site.
