WATCH: Putin points at journalists, asks Trump 'these the ones hurting you?'

Published: Updated:

At a press conference before their private G20 summit meeting, Russian President Vladimir Putin leaned in to US President Donald Trump, gestured to the journalists in the room, and asked: "These are the ones hurting you?”

"These are the ones. You're right about that,” Trump responded, according to The Independent.

Putin appeared to be sympathizing, either jokingly or with a serious tinge, with Trump's complaints against the "fake news" media throughout his presidential campaign and presidency.
