>> A testy exchange between Donald Trump and CNN, marking his first press conference since his November victory. Trump addressing his business conflicts, Obamacare, the Mexican border wall.>> It's not a fence, it's a wall.>> But the focus kept coming back to Russia. Trump rejecting the unverified and salacious report alleging Russia has compromising information on him, angry that CNN reported it, and furious that BuzzFeed published the dossier.
00:00:32
>> It's all fake new, it's phony stuff. It should never been had and it should certainly never had been released.>> After months of publicly doubting that Russia was behind the election hacks into the DNC, Trumps said flatly they were.>> And I think was Russia.>> He went on to spend far more time criticizing the DNC then he did Russia.

>> The Democratic National Committee was totally open to be hacked. What Podesta said about Hillary, I was the boss, i would have fired him immediately. If Putin likes Donald Trump i consider that an asset not a liability.>> Reuters political correspondent Jim Oliphant says the appearance did little to quell the concerns of the millions who voted against Trump.

>> The most striking thing about Trump's press conference is how much it didn't seem like he was ready to take the most powerful position in the world. Trump still sounds like he's in campaign mode, and this press conference very much seemed like just another campaign event.>> Cuz nobody's ever had crowds like Trump has had.

00:01:50
>> Who knows? But maybe the intelligence agencies, which would be a tremendous blot.>> But when the incoming President was asked directly, if anyone on his team had contact with Russia during the campaign, that he did not address.
