Trump Crushes 'Rude' Acosta, Aide Grabs His Mic Away

Trump Press Conference Acosta Rude

After delivering a reasonably subdued post-mortem address following Tuesday night's midterm elections, President Trump's afternoon press conference careened off the rails while taking questions from reporters.

If you can't bring yourself to watch it, Acosta asked Trump about his repeated claims that immigrants and refugees constitute an "invasion", when Trump responded, "Honestly, I think that you should let me run the country". Trump said, "That's enough" at least five times, pointing directly at Acosta but Acosta kept talking over him, demanding to ask a question about the Russian Federation investigation.

CNN reporter Jim Acosta had yet another shockingly uncomfortable exchange with President Trump during a press conference Wednesday.

It's worth billions.'4. To Vice President Pence: 'Mike, will you be my running mate?'5.

"Well I'm not a fan of yours either", Trump replied.

"I love our country", Trump told Alcindor.

She had questioned Mr. Trump about whether his calling himself a nationalist was a dog whistle for white nationalists, an often repeated charge in the news media. The way you treat [White House Press Secretary] Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is terrible.

Most Britons back staying in European Union
Mrs May has reportedly secured concessions from the European Union to avoid a hard border in Ireland , the Sunday Times reports. But Downing Street has reportedly dismissed the report as "speculation".

Trump on Wednesday said he hopes he can work with Congress to get enough money to build his long-promised border wall but that he would not necessarily force a government shutdown over the issue. If i did, you people - you would have known about it. You're a very rude person. "You run CNN. And if you did it well, your ratings will be much higher".

NBC, in particular, took some heat for their coverage of the altercation, with many conservatives wondering if Acosta should have put his hands on the staffer as she tried to take the microphone back. She said the president needs to explain what he meant.

Trump said he "never" worries about any record of racist remarks because "I have never used racist remarks".

'CNN should be ashamed of themselves having you working for them. Acosta is the reporter who was famously first called "fake news" by Trump.A true honor!

After that, President Trump did his best to brush off Acosta's follow-up questions without answering.

When the president tries to call on another journalist, Acosta refuses to give up the microphone and asks about special counsel Robert Mueller probe into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
