‘We Won’t Be Intimidated’: Jim Acosta Suggests Sarah Sanders Threatened Him Not to Ask Question of Trump

CNN reporter Jim Acosta suggested that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders warned him that if he asked President Donald Trump a question at a bill signing, he might not get into another White House pool spray:


Acosta reportedly asked Trump what he meant when he tweeted that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) “would do anything” for campaign contributions:


It’s unclear what exactly Trump meant, but some, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), speculated he implied something sexual.

Tuesday’s incident came amid growing tension between journalists, especially Acosta, and the White House. On Monday, for example, Sanders and Acosta got into a heated exchange in which they quibbled over whether reporters purposefully misled the American people.
