CNN’s Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta is leaving the White House beat at the conclusion of the Trump Term. He will gain a new title, Chief Domestic Correspondent, and will anchor an upcoming show on the weekends, CNN announced today.
Acosta was a constant thorn in the Trump administration’s side. At one point, the Trump administration went as far as to pull his press credentials; it was later restored after a suit was filed.
Acosta was honored with the Truth to Power Award in 2019. In his acceptance speech, Acosta said, “Just because we are pro-truth doesn’t meant we’re anti-Donald Trump.”
