Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump waves as he is introduced during the CNN presidential debate at The Venetian Las Vegas, in Las Vegas, on December 15, 2015.
However, the CNN report quickly fell apart when one of the people named in it, Anthony Scaramucci, denied allegations made and claimed that he had done nothing wrong, CNN took the story down and, after an internal investigation, retracted it.
President Trump renewed his attack on CNN as "fake news" on Tuesday morning after conservative provocateur James O'Keefe released a video of a man believed to be CNN producer John Bonifield criticizing the cabler's coverage of Trump's ties to Russian Federation.
Trump, who has repeatedly lambasted CNN as "fake news", gloated at news of the resignations on Twitter.
Three CNN journalists have resigned after the USA news network was forced to retract a story. The story, which was published on CNN.com late last week, was about Anthony Scaramucci, a former hedge fund manager who was a part of the executive transition team following the 2016 election.
Shortly after, Mr. Trump tweeted again about "fake news CNN", claiming they are now looking at "big management changes" following the retraction, and that network's ratings are "way down".

Starling said there was "no evidence whatsoever to suggest that this fellow died as a result of the brawl at Seagulls last week". The 31-year-old was immediately treated by doctors, but died soon after.
O'Keefe said in the video that this exposes CNN's "editorial bias and anti-Trump agenda".
CNN said in a statement that it is standing by Bonifield.
On Monday, White House correspondent Jim Acosta repeatedly interrupted Sean Spicer during a briefing, and over the weekend the station retracted a fake news story about Russian Federation prompting a policy change. Conservative provocateur James O'Keefe piled on by releasing a video with a CNN producer caught on camera talking about the network's Russian Federation coverage being ratings-driven.
Earlier in the day, he focused his outrage directly at CNN, a network whose reporters and bosses Trump has frequently battled. The president placed NBC, CBS, ABC, thr New York Times, and the Washington Post in the same category as CNN.
But CNN's public relations team tweeted back at him Tuesday morning that the network just recorded its most-watched second quarter in history.
