Donald Trump and Jim Acosta have had mutual bad blood between them since the beginning of Trump’s presidency. Acosta became a household name after becoming one of the very few reporters to call the president out on tough issues that Acosta knew would be met with presidential backlash.
Now, Acosta is at it again, pressing Trump for answers about his Japan G20 Summit trip in which he was seen laughing with murderous dictators like Vladimir Putin and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.
Check out what Acosta just said:
“What is it with your cosiness with some of these dictators and autocrats at these summits?”
