"Will you apologize about Jan. 6?" Acosta shouted to Trump after the former president concluded his speech near a section of border wall.
"No!" several people in the crowd, made up of mostly Republican members of Congress and staffers, shouted back at Acosta. Some in the crowd began to boo the White House reporter-turned-weekend anchor.
After the crowd shouted Acosta down, Trump looked in the anchor's direction, smirked and gave a thumbs-up.
