Hostile journalists sparred with Donald Trump on Friday at a press conference, wondering why he was “scared” of “diversity” in the media and if German Chancellor Angela Merkel has “reservations” about the President. Kristina Dunz of the DPA German Press Agency labeled Trump an “isolationist” and disrespectful to the European Union. She then lectured, “Why are you scared of diversity in the news, in the media?

After rejecting the “isolationist” tag, the Republican retorted, “I don’t know what newspaper you are reading. But I guess that would be another example of, as you say, fake news.” Later, Angsar Graw of Die Welt brought up White House claims of “alleged wiretapping on you, on Trump Tower, on Trump organization.”
