Trump Campaign Manager Calls For Revoking Reporter’s Press Credentials For Asking Trump A Question





President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, is calling for CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta to be stripped of his press credentials because he asked President Trump a question during the signing ceremony at the summit with Kim Jong Un.

Pascale said CNN’s chief White House correspondent was “an absolute disgrace” for interrupting a signing ceremony during the summit between President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

“Jim @Acosta should immediately have his press credentials suspended. He is an absolute disgrace!” wrote Brad Parscale to his 100,000 Twitter followers on Tuesday afternoon.

“Mr. President, did we agree to denuclearize?” Acosta asked as the president was signing a document.




”Starting that process very quickly, very, very quickly. Absolutely,” Trump replied.

Acosta then asked Trump, “Did you talk about Otto Warmbier, sir?”

Warmbier was a college student who was imprisoned by North Korea and died shortly after he was returned to the U.S. last year.

Acosta responded to a Fox News report critical of him for asking the questions during the ceremony, writing: “Democracy… drink it in people.”
