Trump called it dishonest reporting. "I didn't criticize the prime minister", he said at a joint news conference with May, a few hours after the Sun splashed the story across its front page. "It didn't put in what I said about the prime minister and I said tremendous things".
"Trump even mentioned because of that Sun "fake news" article as he called it, he apologized to Teresa May and said so at the press conference and she took it very lightly and said, 'oh, it's the press, "' DeLay said.
'We appreciate The Sun for posting the entire audio of their interview so that everyone can hear the president's remarks for themselves, ' she added.
A major topic at the press conference was the fallout from an interview that Trump gave to The Sun, a British tabloid owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., in which he criticized the way that May handled negotiations for the British exit from the European Union.
In the same press conference, NBC's Kristen Welker asked Trump about his contentious relationship with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.
"In today's press conference, I paused while my colleague from CNN went back and forth with President Trump over a question".
Trump then made a decision to call on a reporter from what he described as a "real network" - Fox News White House reporter John Roberts.

Anderson will now play the victor of either Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal . Isner was famously apart of the longest match in tennis history.
"Mr. President since you attacked CNN can I ask you a question? And to say they're not a real network, or fake news, is also unfair".
President Donald Trump said United Kingdom tabloid The Sun delivered "fake news", but then said it didn't deliver "fake news", so when he said it was "fake news", that was "fake news".
The Sun's headline: "Trump's Brexit Blast: Donald Trump told Theresa May how to do Brexit "but she wrecked it" - and says the U.S. trade deal is off". "There are some fine journalists who work there and risk their lives to report on stories around the world", Roberts said.
Because clearly, that's what Acosta would have done if the president blew off Fox News? LOL. I know Kristen Welker of NBC.
Roberts, a chief White House correspondent, also stood by Welker, who was attacked by the president when she asked him if he was giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the "upper hand".
"No. No. John Roberts go ahead".
"No, no", Trump responded, calling the network "fake news". "Of course it happens to be NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN", he said. Lesson for the kids out there: "no one should ever try to do the right thing with the expectation that it will ever be reciprocated".
"I like you better without the hat", Trump said.
