A teenage Twitter user whom Donald Trump retweeted to attack CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny said that the president-elect edited his tweet.

“Pathetic – you have no sufficient evidence that Donald Trump did not suffer from voter fraud, shame! Bad reporter,” Trump tweeted, quoting part of the user’s tweet.

“Dishonest @CNN is blaming me for calling @jeffzeleny a ‘bad reporter’. Donald Trump added that to the end of the tweet, not me. Thank you,” the user, who claims to be 16-years-old, tweeted.

Trump’s tweet came as part of a stream of tweets on Monday attacking CNN. 

The president-elect said the network is “so embarrassed by their total (100%) support of Hillary Clinton… they don’t know what to do,” before reposting a stream of tweets attacking reporter Zeleny.
