President Donald Trump's re-election campaign manager called on CNN to reprimand a reporter who asked a tough question during the White House Easter Egg Roll.

The president spent Monday morning tweeting attacks against Democrats over the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy that he ended in September, and CNN's Jim Acosta asked Trump to comment.

"Didn't you kill DACA?" Acosta asked, after Trump told reporters that Democrats had let down DACA recipients facing deportation.

Trump didn't respond, and 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale urged CNN to punish Acosta for asking the follow-up question.

"Maybe it is time for Jim Acosta to get a suspension for breaking protocol," Parscale said. "He continues to embarrass himself and @CNN. Pull his credentials for each incident."
