The Hill, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, the BBC, and the New York Daily News also were kept away while Associated Press and Time magazine reporters chose not to participate the briefing in solidarity of denied media outlets.

But in contrast, the conservative website Breitbart News, Republican leaning Fox News, CBS, ABC and NBC, Washington Times and One America News Network were allowed.

At the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, U.S. President Donald Trump said, "And I want you all to know that we are fighting the fake news. It's fake, phony, fake. ...A few days ago I called the fake news the enemy of the people, and they are — they are the enemy of the people. Because they have no sources. They just make them up, whether there are not. ...they are very dishonest people."

He further said, “I’m not against the media. I’m not against the press… I am against the people that make up stories, make up sources. They shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody's name. ...the fake news media doesn't tell the truth. ...It doesn't represent the people, never will represent the people and we're gonna do something about it.”
