Let's bring into Sunni Vega now. To talk about all the fallout from president led trucks press conference yesterday were got pretty heated and you when a middle overall. The I had a front row seat at Michael good morning to you when you go a 160 days at a press conference it is bound to be a free for all and this one was ever bombshells. And there were fireworks. Donald Trump's first news conference since Election Day turning. He looked at this present like I had you say categorically question the president elect can you give us the crowd here and asking us can you give us a question don't be ridiculous to question. I knew not gonna give you can Muster and you stake how to you are fake news. The president elect refusing to call honest CNN reporter angry about that story on those bombshell dossier allegations. It's all fake news. It's phony stuff. He didn't happen strongly denying unsubstantiated. Claims that he was caught on camera in a Russian hotel room engaged in salacious behavior. Saying he never fall for such a ruse and surrounded by bodyguards. I'm surrounded by people. And I always tell them anywhere but I always tell them. If I'm leaving this country. Be very careful but this morning his attack on intelligence agencies under attack too that. The intelligence agencies. Allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake. Out. I think it's a disgrace. And I say that and I say that and that's something that Nazi Germany would have done and did do. Jewish groups calling that an offensive trivialization of the Holocaust. Ethics experts also expressing concern about his big reveal. In those folders his plan to turn over operations of the trump family business to his two sons Don junior and Derrick. I hope at the end of eight years I'll come back and I'll say oh you did a good job otherwise if they do a bad job all say. Your fires. Trump saying he'll still maintain ownership and that he will not divest himself. There will be no four deals of any kind. And money paid to his hotels by foreign governments were. Will be donated to the US government and this first the president elect saying he accepts those intelligence findings that Russia hacked the Democrats in the lead up to the election as far as hacking I think it was Russian but then he wavered you know what could have been others Olson. But not without delivering a harsh message. If you indeed do believe that Russia was behind the hacking what is your message to Vladimir Putin right now. He shouldn't be doing it he won't be doing it Russia will have much greater respect. For our country when I'm leading it. Yeah a very rare admonition of Vladimir Putin right there I also asked the president elect point blank whether he or anyone on his team had any contact with Russia. During the campaign he came back over Michael and he told me no not at also point blank stare and off. Are you in a room when he had a heated stranger to CNN reporter so what would the mood like after that happened in. Do you respective to be the new normal hours you know I think the mood in that room was just generally stay on your used to seeing sparring at a presidential level press conference. This was more than that this was more than he did this was very confrontational. And the question isn't whether this will be the new norm I think this but it has the potential I have a chill effect. You know what the question is whether Donald Trump was trying to. It will initiate initiate some retribution here for us story that he didn't like and it certainly setting the stage for. A pretty hostile relationship for the next four years in this press corps market what we keep our eye on the future and it is more of these these companies come from press conference well.
