CNN’s senior White House correspondent took his anti-Trump road show onto the international stage Thursday, following the Commander-in-Chief to Europe to harass the President over his “America First” foreign policy.
The President was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, touting his “America First” agenda while speaking with foreign leaders and business executives from the world’s largest corporations.
After Trump says of Davos “It’s been really successful…” I asked him how he can be America First if he’s rubbing elbows with big wigs. He did not respond. Video from @ElizLanders pic.twitter.com/jPWWRfTLir

“We want great prosperity, and we want great peace, and that really is the message. A lot of people are coming back to the United States for jobs, we’re seeing tremendous investment and today’s been a very exciting day,” said Trump while exiting the high-level meetings.
Acosta pounced within seconds, nonsensically asking Trump how he plans to advance his agenda while speaking with foreign leaders.
“Mr. President, can you be ‘America First’ but also be rubbing elbows with all these big wigs?” shouted Acosta as the President walked away.
