“This is certainly a big day. This peace accord normalizing relations between Israel and these two Arab nations… What is your take-away as you’re watching this moment?” asked the CNN anchor.
“It’s obviously a very significant day for the Middle East… Also for the Trump administration and President Donald Trump in particular,” responded the correspondent.

ACOSTA UNHINGED: CNN Reporter ‘CLARIFIES’ Trump Supporter Smear
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta found himself in hot-water this week; attempting to clarify his comments that offended Trump supporters and GOP voters across the country.
The network star took to twitter to explain his incendiary remarks revealed by a recent interview with Variety, where he blasted the President’s supporters as not having “all their faculties.”
“The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act. They’re not in on the act and they take what he says very seriously. They take attacks from Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders, and what they do to us on a daily basis, very seriously,” Acosta said. “They don’t have all their faculties and in some cases their elevator might not hit all floors.”
Acosta backtracked from those comments Wednesday, asserting “As you can plainly see, I’m not referring to Trump supporters.”

CNN senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta escalated his war-of-words with President Trump over the weekend; accusing the Commander-in-Chief of “demonizing” immigrants and warning of continued Russian meddling ahead of the 2018 midterms.
Acosta slammed the President on social media after Trump warned those committing voter fraud in the upcoming elections would be “subject to the maximum penalties.”
“Don’t be fooled by the continued demonization of immigrants. Voter fraud in this country is actually very rare. What we should be on the lookout for is Russian meddling,” tweeted Acosta.

Acosta’s comments come as thousands of undocumented immigrants slowly make their way through Mexico towards the United States’ southern border; openly defying President Trump’s demands they return to their home countries.
