CNN’s Jim Acosta Heckled At Tampa Trump Rally

As the video above shows, he obliged. Collins was the designated pool reporter at the photo op, meaning she was representing all the major US television networks, when she asked the president questions about the recently released recording of Trump and his former attorney Michael Cohen. On Wednesday a Politico reporter apologized for calling the Trump supporters cursing out Acosta "garbage people".

'Really enjoyed talking to some of the folks at the rally and hearing their concerns.

"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media", Trump wrote. Since assuming office, he has used various platforms at his disposal - his speeches at election rallies as well as his personal Twitter account to decry criticisms of his action by various American news publications as 'fake news'. "I think we deserve that", he had asked Sanders. "I don't know how to put it any more plainly than that".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders and CNN's Jim Acosta got into a tense back and forth for a second day today, when Acosta asked Sanders if she believed the media is "the enemy of the people".

Anthony Scaramucci defended CNN correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday, after Acosta encountered an openly hostile audience at a rally for President Donald Trump in Florida.

"You have to have respect on both sides", she said.

"But for the sake of this room, the people who are in this room, this democracy, this country, all the people around the world are watching what you're saying, Sarah".

"Fellow Americans are not the enemy of fellow Americans", he added.

Sanders added that as far as she knows, she is "the first press secretary" in US history that has "required Secret Service protection".

Sanders took umbrage with Wolff making fun of her appearance. "Are we to take it from what you just said, we all get put through the wringer, we all get put through the meat grinder in this town and you're not an exception and I'm sorry that happened to you".

"I think the president has made his position known", said Huckabee Sanders before pivoting to her own attack on the media.

On Thursday night, during a rally in Pennsylvania, he pointed to the journalists gathered in the press pool and told the crowd: 'They can make anything bad. The commander-in-chief said, "CNN is fake news".

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE".

"They purposely cause great division & distrust". She responded that the White House condemns violence, but also criticized news outlets over a decades-old accusation that a newspaper revealed key intelligence about Osama bin Laden's use of a satellite phone in the 1990s that damaged efforts to capture or kill him. "They are very risky & sick!", he added, without providing proof of his assertion.
