CNN reporter Jim Acosta was heckled at President Donald Trump’s rally after he arrived at the Florida State Fairgrounds and attempted to deliver a speech with colleague Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday.

In multiple videos uploaded on the social media of the event, supporters of the president can be heard yelling “boo” and “You’re a liar” and chanting “CNN sucks” at the pair of correspondents on the podium.

“You can hear there is a chorus of boos and other chants from this Trump crowd here — saying things like ‘CNN sucks,’ ‘go home,’ and ‘fake news,’” Acosta said. “Wolf, obviously all of those things are false. We’re staying right here. We’re going to do our job and report on this rally to all of our viewers tonight.”

The heckling happened minutes before the POTUS was to take the stage to promote Republican gubernatorial candidate Rep. Ron DeSantis, who is running in this year's Republican primary against state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

Shortly after there were reports of the CNN reporter being heckled, President’s son, Eric, retweeted one of the videos from the rally showing the incident, with caption “#Truth @Acosta”

This was not the first time Acosta faced less-than-welcome attitude from both Trump administration as well as his supporters as relationship between the White House and CNN continued to deteriorate, with the president himself maintaining the left-leaning news network was “fake news.”

Acosta was shouted at by a White House aide Monday as he directed questions about collusion with the Russians at Trump during a photo op with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte ahead of a meeting.

"Make your way out. Let’s go. Move, Jim, let’s go. Keep going, Jim, let’s go. Jim, we’re leaving. Come on, Jim. Go. We’re done," the aide was heard yelling at him in a video.

The incident came days after CNN correspondent Kaitlan Collins was “dis-invited” from an “open press” event at the White House rose garden after she asked the president questions during a press pool in the oval office that were deemed “inappropriate” by the White House.

Acosta made matters much worse for him and his network when he told Variety in an April interview that many of Trump supporters “don’t have all their faculties.”

“The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act,” he told the publication. “They’re not in on the act, and they take what he says very seriously, and they take attacks from [former White House press secretary] Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders and what they do to us on a daily basis very seriously. They don’t have all their faculties in some cases — their elevator might not hit all floors. My concern is that a journalist is going to be hurt one of these days.”

After facing considerable backlash, Acosta tried to explain his comments.

“My comments have been twisted by some outlets,” the reporter tweeted. “As you can plainly see, I’m not referring to Trump supporters. I am talking about people who threaten journalists.”
