Trump tells CNN reporter during presser

Senior U.S. intelligence officials presented classified documents to President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump alleging that Russian Federation holds compromising personal and financial on Trump, CNN reported Tuesday.

Acosta repeatedly tried to get Trump's attention during the president-elect's first press conference in six months.

FBI Director James Comey wouldn't say Tuesday whether the agency is investigating potential contact between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.

President-elect Donald Trump listens to a question during a news conference in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York, Wednesday.

The president-elect bristled at a question about conclusions by US intelligence agencies that Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election was meant to favor Trump: "If Putin likes Donald Trump, guess what folks?"

"I'm not going to give you a question".

Mr Trump acknowledged Russian Federation was likely behind the hack of the DNC.

"I think it's a disgrace".

Trump also blasted CNN, which on Tuesday was the first of numerous news outlets to report that top United States intelligence officials presented Trump with a summary of the memo as part of a briefing last week, though CNN did not publish the full memo as BuzzFeed did. I saw the information, I read the information -outside of that meeting - it's all fake news. "Are we living in Nazi Germany?"

Mister President-elect, you are not always going to like or agree with everything that is reported by the news media.

Mr Trump was referring to the Buzzfeed report of an alleged compilation of negative information about him, which many news organisations did not report as the claims were unverified.

According to CNN, U.S. intelligence officials briefed President Obama and Trump on Friday on a two-page summary of the allegations.

Mr Trump and other officials appeared to focus on BuzzFeed's publication of the report, denying that the document possesses any truth.

Unlike BuzzFeed, whom Trump also railed against, CNN did not include any of the allegations within the memo in its report, because it could not verify them.
