CNN's Jim Acosta now has a book to sell. The CNN White House Correspondent is now pushing the book that he wrote in which he attacks the president.

According to The Daily Wire:

One of President Trump's chief critics in the press, CNN's Jim Acosta, will be releasing a new book that makes a variety of juicy claims about the president's conduct.

According to The Guardian, which published several excerpts of Acosta's upcoming book, aptly titled "The Enemy of the People," the CNN White House correspondent makes the claim that President Trump's so-called war on the press began as an act that snowballed into a strategy.

After a confrontation in which Trump denounced Acosta as "fake news" and "very fake news," White House aide Hope Hicks allegedly approached Acosta afterward to say the president thought he was "very professional today."

"He said, ‘Jim gets it,’" Jim Acosta quotes Hope Hicks as saying in his book. "When he called us ‘fake news,' it was, in his mind, an act."

It is noted that throughout the book Acosta uses "anonymous" sources who spoke to him in private about their opinions of Trump. It remains unclear who exactly those sources are, and if they work directly for the president.
