CNN’s Jim Acosta had another encounter with Trump, this time telling him how he actually feels about the president, The Hill reports.
Trump famously refused to take a question from Acosta before his inauguration, calling him and CNN “fake news.”
Trump was blaming the intelligence community and the media for destroying “wonderful man,” Michael Flynn.
“Just for the record, we don’t hate you. I don’t hate you,” Acosta said.
Trump told Acosta to ask CNN President Jeff Zucker how he got his job. It’s been reported that Trump takes credit for Zucker’s ascension at the network. Acosta asked why Trump had been pro-Wikileaks during the campaign, but was now angry over leaks about his administration.
Trump said the new leaks were, “highly-classified information,” while the Wikileaks emails involved “John Podesta saying bad things about the boss.”
