CNN host Jake Tapper said Saturday that the White House cancelled national security adviser John Bolton’s appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” after President Trump’s tense exchange with a network correspondent at a Friday press conference.
Tapper tweeted that Bolton was scheduled to appear on the Sunday show and “remains fully prepared to do the interview but the White House has canceled it.”
Tapper cited Trump’s refusal to take a question from CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press conference in London on Friday. He called the network “fake news” at the time.
The article goes on to state the following:
“CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN,” Trump said at a press conference Friday after Acosta tried to ask a question.
“Let’s go to a real network,” the president said, before turning to Fox News’ John Roberts.
At the end of the briefing as Trump was leaving, Acosta yelled a question about whether Trump would tell Russian President Vladimir Putin to stay out of U.S. elections, to which Trump replied “yes.”
Update: @AmbJohnBolton had been locked in for tomorrow’s @CNNSOTU. Then the president attacked CNN during his UK presser, and our WH correspondent tried to ask a question. We are told Amb. Bolton remains fully prepared to do the interview but the White House has canceled it.
