    CNN reporter Jim Acosta needled President Trump on Friday as he delivered his first in-person remarks on Thursday's deadly shooting at The Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland.

    Trump, speaking at an event commemorating the six-month mark of the Republican tax law, said the newsroom shooting "shocked the conscience of our nation."

    "This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief," Trump said. "Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job."

    Trump said his administration "will not rest until we have done everything in our power to reduce violent crime and to protect innocent life."

    Trump was met with criticism following his remarks for his frequent targeting of the press and comments he has made calling reporters the "enemy of the people."

    The president and his supporters have targeted Acosta repeatedly, most recently chanting "Go home, Jim!" at the CNN reporter during a Trump rally in South Carolina on Monday. Multiple reporters said a woman verbally attacked Acosta, who was standing in the press area.

    Acosta was promoted to chief White House correspondent by CNN in January.

    The history is here with that statement... all bad.  All because of one phrase.  As long as this President believes in his own bull and the press calls him out on it, he will always believe that the media is the enemy of the American People.

    He says one thing regarding the safety of journalists being able to do their job without the fear of being violently attacked, but the moment he's criticized, he's quick to call you "fake news".  Is it just me, or is he trying to take a cue from... I don't know... ADOLF HITLER?

    Just saying.
