Trump Top Official Calls For Jim Acosta’s Credentials To Be Revoked For Asking Question. Acosta’s Response Is Perfect
On Wednesday, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta shot back at President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager’s call for his press credentials to be revoked for asking questions during president Trump’s meeting with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un, saying the practice happens in “dictatorships…not democracies.”
“Dear Brad.. dictatorships take away press credentials. Not democracies,” Acosta tweeted at Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, Parscale had tweeted that Acosta should “absolutely have his press credentials suspended” for asking questions during a signing ceremony between Trump and the North Korea leader.
“Mr. President, did we agree to denuclearize?” Acosta asked during the signing.
”Starting that process very quickly, very, very quickly. Absolutely,” Trump responded.
Acosta also asked if Trump talked about late American Otto Warmbier, who died after being held in North Korean captivity.
