The crowd at a Q&A session with President Trump at the World Economic Forum booed after he attacked the media.

“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 at the session Friday.

“But overall the bottom line, somebody said, ‘But they could have been that bad because here we are, we’re president,’” Trump continued.

Trump has repeatedly attacked the press throughout his presidential campaign and into his administration.

He has blasted reports about him and his administration as “fake news,” and named CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post among the winners of his “Fake News Awards” earlier this month.

Trump also called a report that he attempted to fire special counsel Robert Mueller last year but was blocked by the White House counsel “fake news” earlier Friday.

The founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, was also booed on Friday after he said Trump‘s leadership was victim to “biased interpretations.”
