Watch – Trump Lashes Out At Jim Acosta For Fact-Checking His Lies: ‘You Are A Terrible Person!’
Donald Trump lost his cool on Wednesday after CNN’s Jim Acosta confronted the president for lying about the caravan of migrants and calling it an “invasion.”
“I want to challenge you on one of the statements that you made in the tail end of the campaign in the midterms,” Acosta told Trump at a press conference following the midterm elections.
“Here we go,” Trump complained.
“It was not an invasion,” Acosta pushed. “Why did you characterize it as such?”
“Because I consider it an invasion,” Trump replied.
“But do you think that you demonized immigrants in this election?” Acosta then asked. “Your campaign had an ad showing migrants climbing over walls.”
“They weren’t actors,” the president quipped. “Do you think they were actors? They weren’t actors. They didn’t come from Hollywood.”
As Acosta kept pushing him on the issue, Trump began to lash out at the CNN reporter.
“That’s enough. That’s enough,” Trump said as aides tried to take the microphone from Acosta.
“I had one other question if I may ask on the Russia investigation,” Acosta pleaded.
“I’m not concerned about anything with the Russian investigation because it’s a hoax,” Trump snapped. “That’s enough. Put down the mic.”
“I’ll tell you what,” he added. “CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”
