In addition to his tweet, Trump also retweeted a graphic mocking the CNN as the "Fake News Network". "Those are the facts".

Reporter Thomas Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and the executive editor of CNN's investigative unit, Lex Haris, presented their resignations, which the TV channel accepted, Efe news reported.

She said the "constant barrage of fake news" at the president has frustrated Trump.

CNN commentator Van Jones called the Russian Federation story a "nothing burger" in the second CNN-related undercover video released by Project Veritas this week.

By late Friday, CNN issued a retraction to the story, which had cited one unnamed source and "did not meet CNN's editorial standards". It caused quite a sensation before the election leading to the resignation of Democratic Election Commissioner who visited the White House hundreds of times during Obama administration.

Trump hits world of scepticism on foreign affairs
The poll of 37 countries found a median of just 22 percent have confidence in Trump to steer the USA on the worldwide stage. Some 55% rated Trump as a strong leader, though 75% said he was arrogant, 65% intolerant, and 62% risky .

The White House on Tuesday urged Americans to watch an online video made by an infamous rightwing activist known for using heavily edited videos to push conservative pet causes, despite not being able to vouch for its accuracy.

Project Veritas, famous for its undercover videos exposing media and political corruption, went to CNN's Atlanta headquarters for the conversations with Bonifield.

"I think you could take it pretty straightforward that this administration disagrees with all of the stories that claim that the President and his campaign colluded with Russian Federation in any capacity", she said. "Ratings way down!" he tweeted Tuesday morning.

Sanders ignored CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny's attempt to ask a question before ending her briefing.

"Even if Russian Federation was trying to swing an election, we try to swing their elections", Bonifield said.

Just days before the video's release, three journalists at CNN resigned after a Russia-related article based on unsubstantiated claims was published. The network, though, has not explicitly said the story was inaccurate. The law firm of one victim recently sued O'Keefe, alleging violation of a federal wiretap law.

He later widened his attack to other news organisations: "So they caught Fake News CNN cold, but what about NBC, CBS & ABC?"

A source close to CNN told BuzzFeed that the story's publication was a "massive, massive f-- up and people will be disciplined".

The release of the embarrassing video comes after another high-profile fake news flop at the network.
