Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway accused CNN of not covering the president’s economic achievements during a Wednesday interview.


CNN anchor John Berman alleged that news networks are “not talking about the economy” because President Trump keeps tweeting and talking about NFL players and the national anthem.

“No, no, you’re not talking about the economy,” Conway retorted. “We certainly are.”

“The president isn’t when he’s talking about the anthem and you’re not right now, so I want to ask you about the economy,” Berman started.

“I’m not talking about the economy because I’m on CNN and you don’t talk about the economy,” Conway alleged.

Berman noted that CNN did talk about the May jobs report when it came out and interviewed Stephen Moore, who advised Trump on the economy during his campaign.

“I’m glad you had him on, but respectfully, you should have screaming graphics: lowest unemployment ever for African-Americans, for Hispanics, for teens,” Conway replied.
