His comments come after the network’s chief White House correspondent interrupted a signing ceremony during the historic summit in Singapore.
While President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un were signing an agreement, the CNN reporter shouted out questions while other reporters respected the protocols.
The president answered the first question before ignoring Acosta’s continued questioning.
Acosta responded to the criticisms with the following tweet:
Democracy… drink it in people. https://t.co/lKew4PnbWK

Parscale has criticized Acosta for breaking protocol before, though he claims he’s just doing his job.
