Trump orders CNN's Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office

Share

Donald Trump's war with CNN continued yesterday after he unceremoniously kicked out a senior reporter from the Oval Office.

"Did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway?" "Did you say you want more people from Norway?"

ACOSTA: Is that true, Mr. President? "Thank you very much everybody", Trump said. He asked Trump if he only wanted "Caucasian or white" people to immigrate to the United States.

Acosta had pressed Trump on his racist remarks about immigrants, in which he referred to African nations as "sh*thole countries" and suggested we needn't accept more Haitians into the U.S.

A Trump staffer in the background can be heard saying, "Jim, thank you", before Acosta apparently exited the room. Acosta then took to Twitter, accusing White House aides of obstructing him from asking questions.

Trump's feud with CNN and many other prominent American news outlets has escalated from the time he first announced his candidacy to winning the nomination ticket for the Republican Party and eventually the presidency.

"It was that kind of a display", Acosta recalled.

The incident occurred on January 16 during a White House press conference, the Daily Mail reported. Acosta asked, according to the Daily Mail. Sanders quickly cut him off.

"When journalists make honest mistakes, they should own up to them". Reagan asked. "Time for Acosta to leave".

"I have been very patient with this line of questioning" she said.

The president often describes CNN as "fake news CNN".

In a meeting on immigration last week, President Donald Trump used damning language in reference to immigrants from Africa, Haiti and other "shithole countries".

The Media Research Center reports that CNN anchors and guests uttered the profanity at least 195 times in one day. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
