In an interview in front of the White House with Fox and Friends Friday morning, President Trump called out CNN over their coverage of his summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.


Fox host Steve Doocy asked the president about his meeting with Kim. Trump responded, “I’ve taken heat. What am supposed to do, walk out and say terrible? We got along very well, good chemistry,” and added that the North Koreans “are already starting to produce remains of these great, young soldiers who were left in North Korea. We’re getting the remains. Nobody thought that was possible.”

Trump added, “Funny, watch CNN, what a fraud it is,” to which Doocy responded, “They’re listening. They’re right behind you.”

“That’s fine. You hear me,” Trump said as he turned around in their direction in the middle of the interview. “Trump agreed to meet. I agreed to meet. Of course you have to agree to meet. If you don’t agree to meet, you know what you will have? You will have nuclear war, that’s what you’re going to have. I have a great relationship. He gave us back our hostages. I didn’t pay anything, I paid nothing.”
