President Trump is continuing to take shots at the media.

Trump hosted his first fully fledged press conference as President earlier today, answering two questions from conservative news outlets.

US correspondent Steve Merczynski told Larry Williams Trump's conference also let some reporters know how he feels about them.

"A lot of it was dealing about his relationship with the press," he said.

Meanwhile, retired Vice Admirable Bob Harward, Trump's top pick to fill the National Security Advisor role, has turned down the job.

Merczynski said Harward turned it down for family reasons, but some information suggests otherwise.

"Comments from friends of his, saying that he didn't want to get involved in the chaos, and to use a bad four-letter word, he said it's a sh** sandwich over there."
