WATCH: President Trump Tells CNN’s Jim Acosta to GET OUT of the White House (VIDEO)


Jim Acosta

This morning, President Trump said the one word to CNN’s Jim Acosta that we all would like to say.

And no, it wasn’t “s***hole.”


At a photo opp in the Oval Office this morning with Nursultan Nazarbayev, the president of Kazakhstan, Acosta began berating the President with questions insinuating that he preferred immigrants from “white” countries like Norway, as opposed to African countries.

The President initially tried to engage with Acosta and other reporters asking similar questions, saying that he wanted immigrants from all countries. That did not seem to satisfy Acosta, as he continued with a barrage of leading questions.

Finally, the President pointed at Acosta and said “Out.” White House wranglers then ushered all of the reporters out of the Oval Office. Afterward, during a second meeting with reporters in the Roosevelt room, the wranglers and White House staff kept Acosta and other reporters from questioning the President.

Later, as he spoke to Wolf Blitzer from the South Lawn, Acosta was beside himself, saying he had never been treated that way in the White House before. He know for a fact that this is wrong – it is quite common for reporters to be ushered out of the President’s presence in the White House or kept from asking questions.

On Twitter, Acosta fumed about how he was treated.

“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,” he said.

“What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH. Certainly not in the U.S.”

“When I tried to follow up on this in the Oval Office, Trump told me to get “out.” We then went to the Roosevelt Room where WH aides obstructed us from asking questions.”

Here are the tweets.

Here is the video – from CNN – of President Trump telling Acosta to get out.

The White House did not comment on the exchange.
