President Donald Trump didn’t have time for CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday, telling the left-leaning reporter to “get out” during a press briefing with the President of Kazakhstan.
The President was fielding questions from journalists when Acosta pounced on his recent remarks regarding immigration; asking the Commander-in-Chief if he only prefers “Caucasian” and “white” immigrants from Norway other European nations.
“Mr. President, did you say that you wanted more people to come in from Norway? Is that true?” pressed the CNN reporter.
“I want them to come in from everywhere,” fired back the President.
“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir?” asked Acosta.
“Out,” replied the President, shutting down Acosta and pointing at the door.
The CNN reporter commented on the altercation on social media, saying he had “never encountered” that sort of behavior at the White House.
“As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before,” tweeted the correspondent.
