During Donald Trump’s press conference on Wednesday, CNN’s Jim Acosta repeatedly attempted to ask the President-elect a question, but was denied because of recent reporting by BuzzFeed and CNN that Trump has called “fake news.”
Following the press conference, Jim Acosta told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “At the beginning of that news conference, Donald Trump indicated that he was not going to call on me or call on CNN.”
“I felt it was only fair that if our news organization is going to be attacked that we get a chance to ask a follow-up question about what Donald Trump was talking about,” Acosta said.
Acosta went on to tell Blitzer, “After I asked and, I guess nicely demanded, that we have a question, Sean Spicer, the incoming press secretary did say to me that if I were to do that again, I was going to be thrown out of this press conference.”
