CNN's Acosta on Trump wrestling video: "We have to stand up to this"

“There are two approaches to this. One is, we can sit back and be silent and just take it,” Acosta said on CNN on Sunday. “I think we’re well past that now.”

“I think we’re at the stage where we have to try the other approach, which is: we have to stand up to this. We have to confront this and say that it’s wrong.”

Acosta said he’s concerned that Trump’s tweets and continual attacks on the press will lead to violence against a member of the news media.

“My concern is that this kind of rhetoric, this kind of behavior is going to lead to a journalist being hurt,” he said.
