WH On Trump Fans Heckling Acosta: 'The Media Holds A Responsibility'

WH On Trump Fans Heckling Acosta: 'The Media Holds A Responsibility'

"I can be more presidential than any president in history except for maybe Abe Lincoln with the big hat", Trump said.

Trump himself retweeted the mob-jeering video, passing along the clip from son Eric, who hashtagged it #truth.

He later posted a video of the crowd, adding: "Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa".

During the Tuesday night rally, Acosta also had some difficulty reporting.

He wrote that he was anxious the "hostility" spurred by Trump could eventually result in someone getting hurt. "The press is not the enemy".

Trump's rhetoric towards the press has become increasingly belligerent since he took office.

Earlier this week the publisher of The New York Times, AG Sulzberger, was forced to issue a statement after Trump tweeted about an off-the-record meeting between the two.

Despite the deadly attack on the Capital Gazette newsroom in June, in which a gunman shot and killed five staff members, Trump has continued to describe many news outlets (excluding Fox News, which often features Trump-friendly coverage) as "the enemy of the people".

"They were trying to do stand-ups at a public rally, and you have people trying to yell over them preventing them from doing their jobs and yelling that their network sucks on live TV", he said. A month later, he shared a cartoon of train running over another figure with a CNN logo over the their head. Kaitlin Collins was barred from a press event in the Rose Garden July 25.

"While we certainly support freedom of the press", Sanders said at today's White House press briefing when pressed about the incident, "we also support freedom of speech". "Does the White House support that or not?"
