Viral 'Will You Give Up Your Nuclear Weapons?': CNN's Acosta Shouts Questions at Kim, Trump
While President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un were walking between meeting rooms at a resort hotel in Singapore, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta shouted questions at the two leaders.
Prior to their approximately 40-minute private meeting, Acosta shouted to Trump, "what do you hope to accomplish sir."
After that meeting, as Trump and Kim were walking across an elevated colonnade to a larger room where aides were awaiting them, Acosta addressed the dictator from the press pool.

"Mr. Kim, will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?" Acosta asked.
"Any progress, Mr. President?" he inquired of Trump.
Kim ignored Acosta's question, but Trump said his meeting was "very good" and that the two men are building an "excellent relationship."
