NBC News’ Pete Williams explained, “I think the problem here is the news conference that he had two days ago, the one you attended just didn’t put this to rest and wasn’t as persuasive as perhaps he had hoped.”
Acosta couldn't stop the bad cable news coverage, which is all Trump cares about, which is why he is gone. It has nothing to do with doing the right thing. pic.twitter.com/OsozBi1O3C

Trump based his decision on Acosta on cable news coverage
It was reported that Trump was watching TV and following cable news coverage in order to decide whether or not to fire Alex Acosta. If Acosta would have been able to stop the bad cable news coverage for Trump with his news conference, he would still be Labor Secretary today. Trump didn’t fire Acosta because of his handling of the Jeffrey Epstein case. He didn’t get rid of Acosta because it was the right thing to do.
Trump pushed Acosta out to end the bad cable news coverage because this president does everything based on his cable news coverage.
Alex Acosta is gone, but what shouldn’t be forgotten is that he never should have been in a presidential administration in the first place.
