Trump added, "This is just the beginning" while talking about the memo, which likely is the first of many steps the administration will take to pressure China on North Korea.

Trump reminded Acosta he just did hold a press conference, but the reporter noted he and his fellow journalists would appreciate the opportunity to ask a few more questions.

"They've been condemned. They have been condemned", Trump responded.

CNN's Jim Acosta on Tuesday went off on Donald Trump's "strange, surreal stunning and baffling" press conference, explaining the world witnessed "a presidency go off the rails". The president responded this was a press conference. You said on Friday we'd have a press conference.

"It doesn't bother me at all", Trump declared.

"It doesn't bother me at all, but I like real news, not fake news", Trump told Acosta.

Trump then turned, thanked everyone and left the room as Acosta yelled, "Haven't you spread a lot of fake news yourself, sir?"

But his fit of pique reached a high point less than two weeks ago when he sparred with domestic policy adviser Stephen Miller during a televised briefing about immigration. He didn't mention that it took 48 hours of blistering criticism for Trump to finally do it. "What we saw at the White House yesterday where he came out with that very scripted statement, that was not really the president of the United States deep down inside".
