President Donald Trump finally had enough of obnoxious CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday, telling him to get “out” after he continued his well-documented pattern of childish antics.
The exchange happened at the end of a press conference with the Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev when Acosta would not stop his attempts to grandstand about race-related issues.
“Did you say that you wanted more people to come in from Norway?” Acosta asked.
“I want them to come in from everywhere. Everywhere,” Trump replied.
“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir?” Acosta asked. “Or do you want people from other parts of the world? Where there are people of color?”
Trump pointed at the door and told Acosta, “Out.”
Acosta took to Twitter to give his version of events, writing, “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.”
Acosta later added, “What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH. Certainly not in the U.S.”
