JIM ACOSTA: Mr. President, can you explain why you did not condemn those hate groups by name over the weekend?
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: They've been condemned. They have been condemned.
ACOSTA: And why are we not having a press conference today? You said on Friday we'd have a press conference.
TRUMP: We had a press conference, we just had a press conference.
ACOSTA: Can we ask you some more questions then, sir?
TRUMP: Doesn't bother me at all, but I like real news, not fake news. You're fake news. Thank you.
