President Donald Trump ripped into CNN's Jim Acosta on Saturday during a press conference in Japan. As The Daily Wire reports:

President Donald Trump mocked CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Saturday during a G-20 press conference in Osaka, Japan, which elicited laughter from the audience.

 

After briefly talking about Acosta's book, Trump said while pointing at the other journalists in the room: "I get along with everybody — except you people, actually."

"Mr. President, on the case of Jamal Khashoggi, you have a lot of journalists in this room who object to what appears to be the Saudi government’s complicity and perhaps orchestration of the assassination and dismembering of a journalist," Acosta pressed. "And do you agree that it is despicable for a government to kill a journalist in that fashion?"

"Yes, I do," Trump responded. "I think it’s horrible. Or anybody else, by the way. But I think it’s horrible. And, if you look, and look into Saudi Arabia and you see what’s happening, 13 people or so have been prosecuted. Others are being prosecuted. They’ve taken it very, very seriously, and they will continue to. And I’ve let everybody know I’m not — I’m very unhappy about that whole event."

Acosta has repeatedly stumbled and humiliated himself when trying to attack the President. It appears that this time was no different.
