Trump Retweets Video of Supporters Chanting 'CNN Sucks' at Reporter Jim Acosta

President Trump retweeted his son's tweet.

He wrote that he was anxious the "hostility" spurred by Trump could eventually result in someone getting hurt. Acosta who has become Trump's punching bag as of late, when it comes his consistent and relentless attacks of America's media, showed no lack of bravery last night.

Rows of metal barriers separate the press from the crowd so they could not reach the reporter.

Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa.

He said that President Trump supporters get their skewed opinions by watching Fox News.

"We should not treat our fellow Americans this way". In recent months Trump has referred to the news media as "the enemy of the American people", "really bad people", and "downright dishonest", and has singled out CNN several times.

"Despite his heavy reliance on the media to build his brand, President Trump has attacked the mainstream media repeatedly since the days before he entered the White House", wrote Eugene Scott at the Washington Post. Does the White House support that, or not? 'The successes continue for this president but the coverage continues to be negative.


But Acosta and Trump seem to have a particularly antagonistic relationship. "CNN is fake news".

HUCKABEE SANDERS: I'm sorry, what was the first part of question? I don't take questions from CNN, ' Trump lectured. "Let's go to a real network", he said to the entire world.

'Well, we're a real network too, Mr. President, ' he complained.

Acosta tweeted out video from Trump's rally Tuesday night in Tampa, which showed people shouting "You suck!" and making obscene gestures toward him.

To Acosta's credit, however, he spent time speaking with many Trump supporters, answering questions that they may have had.

"Wolf, just to give you a sense of what's happening right now, you can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here in Tampa, Florida there, saying things like, 'CNN sucks, ' 'go home, ' and 'fake news, '" Acosta said.
