CNN’s Jim Acosta To Trump: I Dare You ‘To Sit Down With Me’ — Watch

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Wednesday dared President Donald Trump to do a one-on-one interview to talk about “the news.”

“I dare him to sit down with me,” Acosta said. “And, you know, listen, it’s not as if we’re going to go in there, you know, kamikaze, you know, ramming speed. We would do what we always do. Which is do the news,” the journalist told Late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on ABC Wednesday night.

“I love watching you torment him,” Kimmel, a frequent critic of the president, responded. “It’s a small consolation, it really is.”

“It’s a living. It pays the bills,” Acosta replied.

Trump regularly calls CNN “fake news” and notably jousted with Acosta in January 2017 while president-elect when the correspondent repeatedly made attempts to ask a question while interrupting the president.

“Your organization is terrible,” Trump said directly to Acosta at the time.

“You’re attacking us. Can you give us a question?” Acosta shot back.

“Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news,” Trump responded before moving on to another reporter.

Acosta also told Kimmel he has “good” relationship with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders while saying she still speaks to him by phone outside of press briefings.

“I try to have a good relationship with them. Sean Spicer was one of my sources before he was the White House press secretary.”

Acosta has gone back and forth with Sanders at numerous press briefings and questioned her courage in a tweet in March after one briefing when she didn’t call on him.
