President Donald Trump faced criticism by some who viewed it as inappropriate for him to criticize the media while on his trip overseas. 

Speaking in Poland Thursday, Trump was asked about the controversial WWE video he shared on Twitter. 

"They have been fake news for a long time. They’ve been covering me in a very, very dishonest way," he remarked about CNN, adding the broadcaster took the parody video "too seriously."

He also cast doubt on the conclusions of U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia meddled in last year's election, which also drew a rebuke.

The president answered that Moscow probably played a role but that "nobody really knows for sure" and other countries could have been involved too.

Charles Krauthammer praised Trump for the address he gave later in the day, but said the president should have simply avoided the earlier questions and moved on. 

"It was totally unnecessary. He stepped all over the message [from] perhaps the best speech he's given," said Krauthammer, who also faulted the "obsessed" press for choosing to focus on the comments rather than the speech. 

On "America's Newsroom," Rachel Campos-Duffy argued that Trump is in a "lose-lose" position and no matter what he does, the media will criticize him. 

She said if he didn't answer the question, the media would call him out for being evasive. 

"No matter what he does, they're gonna talk about Russia because the left is obsessed with Russia," said Campos-Duffy.

Leslie Marshall said Trump should act "more presidential" in his answers and is 'his own worst enemy" when it comes to off-the-cuff statements and tweets.
