Trump attacks CNN in IndiaPresident Donald Trump took his battle with CNN overseas on Tuesday, as he and correspondent Jim Acosta clashed over truth-telling and reports over Russian interference in U.S. elections.

After Trump attacked CNN during a wide-ranging news conference in India, Acosta told the president: "I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying."

Acosta was responding to Trump's criticism of CNN's coverage of reports that Russia is seeking to interfere in the U.S. election, just as it did in 2016, in order to help the president win.

"Your record is so bad you ought to be ashamed of yourself,” Trump told Acosta later. "You have the worst record in the history of broadcasting.”

Responded Acosta: “I’m not ashamed of anything and our organization is not ashamed."
