U.S. Donald Trump CNN Reporter Jim Acosta has commented that he answered more questions from heckling Trump supporters at a MAGA rally in Florida than President Donald Trump has taken from the press recently. Acosta’s comments came as he was interrupted by Trump supporters chanting “CNN sucks” during his live segment from the Tampa rally on Tuesday. Speaking to Anderson Cooper live from the rally, the pair discussed the slowdown in White House press briefings in recent weeks and the apparent reluctance of Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to take questions from the press. Cooper observed that the president has refused to answer reporters’ questions 16 times in just six days, asking Acosta whether there was any reason for doing so other than Trump wanting to avoid answering certain awkward questions.
