Acosta to Trump: CNN's 'record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes'


Acosta to Trump: CNN's 'record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes'
By Joe Concha - 02/25/20 08:26 AM EST


CNN's chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, told President Trump on Tuesday that his network's "record on delivering the truth is a lot better" than his "sometimes" after the president broached a recent report on Russian election interference that CNN later walked back.

The exchange came in New Delhi, India after Acosta asked if Trump would pledge to reject any foreign interference in the upcoming presidential campaign.

“First of all, I want no help from any country, and I haven’t been given help from any country,” Trump replied. "And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network, said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for the fact that they said certain things that weren’t true? Tell me, what was their apology yesterday? What did they say?”

“Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes," Acosta responded without answering the president's question.

“Let me tell you about your record, your record is so bad you ought to be ashamed of yourself,” Trump shot back. “You have the worst record in the history of broadcasting.”

“I’m not ashamed of anything and our organization is not ashamed,” retorted Acosta.
