'Wildest show on earth': How the newspapers reported Donald Trump's extraordinary press conference

Donald Trump newspaper front pages

Donald Trump launched an extraordinary attack on the news media on Thursday afternoon in a wide-ranging, wild 75-minute press conference.

Shortly before it emerged that Mr Trump's choice for national security adviser had turned him down, he insisted his team was running "like a fine-tuned machine" and lampooned the mainstream media that he said was peddling "fake news".

“I open the paper and I see stories of chaos, chaos,” he said. “It’s the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite not being able to get my cabinet approved.” 

So how did the newspapers report on the press conference?
