Trump attacks CNN and BuzzFeed at press conference

Roberts also claims Trump's White House press secretary threatened to remove Roberts if he asked a question.

In the process of decrying allegations against him, Trump described BuzzFeed as "a failing pile of garbage", an epithet that the media company is now wearing as a badge of honor.

While in office, Trump will also donate profits from his global hotels to the U.S. Treasury. I am not going to give you a question.

Trump had scolded CNN during Wednesday's press conference, because he doesn't like the way the network handled coverage of a controversial Russian Federation dossier that was eventually published by BuzzFeed. "A couple in particular - and they came out so strongly against that fake news and the fact that it was written about by primarily one group and one television station". In an important moment in journalism, Fox News anchor Shepard "Shep" Smith voiced his opinion on President-Elect Donald Trump's recent accusations against CNN.

"As far as Buzzfeed, which is a failing pile of garbage, writing it, I think they're going to suffer the consequences", Trump said, dismissing the report as a "sad and pathetic" effort to get clicks for their website.

"Not you. Your news organisation is awful", Trump told the United States broadcaster's White House correspondent, Jim Acosta.

Havana welcomes end of United States preferential immigration policy concerning Cubans
Obama's rapprochement with Cuba and his historic visit to Havana past year had fueled speculation the policy would be scrapped. "If we go back to Cuba we won't be allowed to work in our profession", said Michael Palacios, one of the doctors.

"Since you're attacking our publication, could you give us a chance to ask a question, Sir?"

CNN took great pains to differentiate its story from BuzzFeed's approach, issuing a statement that said its report was carefully sourced and did not contain any unsubstantiated material.

Trump has denied the allegations in the report, which he dubbed as "fake". The Trump team knows this. The question was later asked by ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega.

The network challenged the Trump team to identify what it believed was inaccurate in the CNN report.

BuzzFeed said in its report that the files were unverified, but made a decision to publish them "so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the USA government".

BuzzFeed is a global news organization that employs hundreds of journalists around the world and published adversarial journalism regarding candidates on the left and right during the campaign.
