Recently at the Newseum in Washington D.C., CNN’s  White House assistant Jim Acosta shared his opinion to President Donald Trump‘s “Fake News Awards” and stated that Trump was “the king of fake news.”

Acosta said, “I would say, having been called fake news myself, that the President of the United States is the king of fake news. He is the king of fake news. He said Barack Obama was not born in this country. He said Mexican are rapists and criminals. He has said many things. He has said he lost the election because undocumented people voted by the millions.”

“He said that he had the largest inauguration crowd of all time. The list goes on and on. And I don’t want people to think that I am saying that because I have an ax to grind or I am here to criticized or be political or have an agenda or whatever you were saying earlier, it’s just a fact.”

He proceeded, “It’s unfortunate that the president has sunk to that level where he has to go around issuing these kinds of awards. It’s just not what you would think would happen in this country.”

About Trump’s alleged “sh*thole” comment Acosta stated,

“As you can tell from that statement, there’s no denial as to what the president said. They’re not denying that the president said this, in this statement. And so, we’re just going to have to press the White House further on this.”

He then continued, “I almost have to think back to the day when we were at Trump Tower, when the president was commenting on Charlottesville, and he was saying that there were ‘very fine people on both sides,’ saying that there were ‘very fine people’ among the white supremacists and the Nazis, is that the president of the United States just seems to have a problem here in this area.”

“And we can tiptoe around it, we can dance around it, and not really put our finger on it, but the president seems to harbor racist feelings about people of color, from other parts of the world.”

“And it’s just a terrible thing to have come out of your mouth as a White House correspondent, or as a journalist. But if these comments are accurate, Wolf, I think it just is going to cause more damage, more grave damage to this presidency because it cuts to the very core of who he is.”

“You just shouldn’t be referring to countries like that around the world in this manner. In the United States, as we’ve been talking about many, many times over the last several months, we bring in people from all parts of the world, and obviously, there are good, wonderful people who come from Haiti and from Africa and so on.”
