"They do feel silenced by just the general swirl of what they perceive to be the broader percentage of leanings within the company, and I don’t think that’s fair or right," he added, though he did not specify to what extent or how many of...

Trump has called Acosta "fake news," and he has become a target of fervent Trump supporters, who were seen jeering and cursing him...
