CNN reporter Jim Acosta made headlines when he got into a heated exchange with senior White House adviser Stephen Miller over immigration on Wednesday. Hours later, he was in the news again for a new accusation he hurled at the White House.
“I think at times this White House has an unhealthy fixation on what I call the “3 Ms”: the Mexicans, the Muslims, and the media,” he told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. “Their policies tend to be crafted around bashing one of those three groups, and we just see it time and again.”
As previously reported by Independent Journal Review: Miller gave Acosta quite the talking-to during a Wednesday press conference:
Miller went on to ask Acosta if he’s really never met an immigrant from somewhere other than Great Britain or Australia who speaks English in real life.
“That is one of the most outrageous, insulting, ignorant, and foolish things you’ve ever said,” Miller added. “The notion that you think this is a racist bill is so wrong and so insulting.”
Acosta and the Trump administration have previously clashed.
