CNN’s Acosta: Trump Speech Sounded More Like ‘Grievanceburg Address’ Than Gettysburg

acostaCNN reporter Jim Acosta reacted to Donald Trump‘s big Gettysburg speech today by remarking on how it began with an airing of grievances.

Trump’s campaign billed this speech as a big policy-oriented vision of his first 100 days in office, but before Trump got to that part he complained about the media and said he would sue his accusers after the election.

Acosta said, “This sounded very much like the Grievanceburg Address, not the Gettysburg Address. It was Donald Trump running through basically everything that is getting on his nerves these days.”

As for the policy part of the speech, Acosta said it mostly sounded like “rehashing” and “repackaging” his old policies.
