Jim Acosta Interrupts Trump Speech To Ask, ‘Will You Stop Calling The Press The Enemy Of The People?’ Here’s What Happened:

On Friday, when Donald Trump was giving his first in-person remarks following the mass shooting that killed five reporters at The Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland, CNN’s Jim Acosta shouted at the president asking if was going to stop attacking the press.

“This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief,” Trump said had said at an event commemorating the six-month mark of the Republican’s tax law. “Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job.”

Trump said his administration “will not rest until we have done everything in our power to reduce violent crime and to protect innocent life.”

Trump has received constant criticism following the Annapolis shooting after he called the press the “enemy of the American people.”

During Trump’s address on Friday, Acosta shouted from across the room:

“Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people?”

Acosta took to Twitter shortly after to say that Trump did not respond.

“I tried to ask the president if he would stop calling us the enemy of the people,” Acosta said in the tweet. “He did not respond.”
