Tapper Hits Back at Trump Campaign Manager for Attack on Acosta: ‘Attitude That Fits Better in Pyongyang’

CNN host Jake Tapper said President Trump‘s 2020 campaign manager’s anti-free press rhetoric “fits better in Pyongyang than in Washington, D.C.”

Tapper’s knock came after Brad Parscale called for suspension of CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press credentials.

“Jim @Acosta should immediately have his press credentials suspended. He is an absolute disgrace! @realDonaldTrump,” tweeted Parscale in response to a video of Acosta asking the president questions during his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Tapper then responded to the tweet with two of his own.

As for Acosta’s questions during the summit, he also asked the president if “any progress” had been made between the two countries and asked Kim if he will give up his nuclear weapons.
