Watch Trump clash with a CNN reporter in his first press conference in months

President-elect Donald Trump clashed with CNN's Jim Acosta on Wednesday during his first press conference in 167 days. The conflict started after Trump tore into BuzzFeed News and CNN for publishing unsubstantiated reports that Russia had information on Trump they could use for blackmail. Acosta demanded to ask a question, given that Trump was "attacking" CNN from the stage.
