Trump Tells Latvian President to Call on Baltic Reporter, Not 'Fake News' US Press
During a joint press conference with leaders from three Baltic states, President Donald Trump asked the Latvian leader to call on a member of his regional press rather than a "fake news" reporter from the United States.
"A Baltic reporter, ideally." Trump told Latvian President Raimonds Vējonis. "Mr. President, pick a reporter from the Baltics."
Vējonis smiled and paused for a moment, unsure who to choose.
Today, it was my honor to welcome Estonia President @KerstiKaljulaid, Lithuania President @Grybauskaite_LT, and Latvia President @Vejonis to the @WhiteHouse. Congratulations on your 100th anniversaries of independence! #BalticSummit: https://t.co/XAchZ3zUSe pic.twitter.com/RRftyTGEvb

"Real news, not fake news," Trump said as Vējonis, Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid and Lithuania's Dalia Grybauskaite looked on.
Trump met with Vējonis, Grybauskaite and Kaljulaid to discuss defense and security policy.
Russia was reportedly a top point of discussion, as the three nations were once controlled by the former Soviet Union.
Trump added that he believes no American president has been tougher on Russia than himself.
