“Dear Brad.. dictatorships take away press credentials. Not democracies,” Acosta tweeted at Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale on Tuesday.

 

 

Parscale had tweeted earlier Tuesday that Acosta should “immediately have his press credentials suspended” for asking questions during a signing ceremony between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The campaign manager was responding to a report in the conservative Daily Wire, which stated that Acosta shouted questions during the signing ceremony.

"Mr. President, did we agree to denuclearize?" Acosta asked during the signing.

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

Acosta also asked if Trump talked about late American Otto Warmbier, who died after being held in North Korean captivity.

Parscale has called for the CNN correspondent’s credentials to be revoked in the past – he wrote a similar tweet in April after Acosta shouted questions at the president during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
