CNN's Jim Acosta sat back and smiled on Thursday as Puerto Rican Governor Ricardo Rossello threatened to physically attack President Donald Trump, saying that he would punch him in the mouth.
In the interview, which aired on "CNN Right Now With Brianna Keilar," Rossello said: "If the bully gets close, I'll punch the bully in the mouth."
Acosta's face lit up with a smile immediately after Rossello made the threat.
The shocking remarks from Rossello come after Puerto Rican officials claimed that the White House tried to push back a meeting with them.
