Jim Acosta Confronts Trump Over Coronavirus Response, Trump Snaps: ‘That’s CNN, Fake News!’

CNN reporter Jim Acosta confronted Donald Trump on Wednesday over his response to the coronavirus, only to have the president snap at him and his network.

Acosta noted that the White House’s own officials have been contradicting what the president says about the coronavirus.

“What do you say to Americans who are concerned that you’re not taking this seriously enough and that some of your statements don’t match what your health experts are saying?” asked Acosta.

“That’s CNN. Fake news,” Trump dismissed the question.

Acosta tweeted about the altercation shortly after.

“Tried to ask Trump to respond to Americans who are concerned he’s not taking situation seriously enough and that his statements don’t match what health experts are saying. He did not answer the question,” tweeted Acosta.
