The audience at a Q&A session with President Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos erupted in loud boos after President Trump attacked the media as “nasty,” “vicious” and “fake.”
“It wasn’t til I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious and how fake the press can be, as the cameras start going off in the back,” Trump said.
The crowd booed at his remarks.
“But overall the bottom line, somebody said, ‘But they could have been that bad because here we are, we’re president,’” Trump continued.

Trump also called a report, which was first published by The New York Times and later confirmed by Fox News, that he attempted to fire special counsel Robert Mueller last year but was blocked by the White House counsel “fake news.”
Davos attendees also booed the founder of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, after he claimed in his speech introducing President Trump that Trump’s presidency has fallen victim to “misconceptions and biased interpretations.”
