CNN’s Jim Acosta Booed While Heckling Trump During Texas Border Visit
CNN‘s Jim Acosta just can’t quit Donald Trump, as the network’s post-election ratings continue to spiral into oblivion.
While on a Wednesday visit to the southern US border with Gov. Greg Abbott (R), Acosta shouted “Will you apologize about Jan. 6?” to the former president, after Trump concluded a speech near a section of border wall.
“No!” shot back several people in the crowd, which began booing at the former White House correspondent who’s now a weekend anchor, according to The Hill.
Acosta took to Twitter to complain:
At border event with Trump and Abbott I asked Trump if he’s going to apologize for January 6. He did not respond. Crowd of mostly GOP members and staff booed.

Trump was in Texas to decry the ‘sick’ state of America, saying: “We have a sick country in many ways. It’s sick in elections, and it’s sick in the border. And if you don’t have good elections, and if you don’t have a strong border, you don’t have a country.”
Present at the event were members of the Republican Study Committee, including Chairman Jim Banks, who said in a statement: “President Trump spent four years fixing the border. But the Biden administration broke it again, and we are now experiencing the worst border crisis in our history.”
“I do not do interviews with CNN because I do not trust CNN to be honorable or truthful,” Brooks told Acosta. “You guys will lie through your teeth any chance you get.”
