President Trump Kicks CNN Reporter Out Of Oval Office For Asking Him About His Alleged “Shithole” Comment  

All concerned people aren’t about to rest on the reports that President Donald Trump referred to Haiti and African nations as “sh&*hole countries.” But it also appears like the Trump administration is keen on brushing the whole issue aside so that it doesn’t cause any further uproar.

CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, like many other good meaning world citizens, would seize every opportunity to get to the root of the matter. That’s why when he got an opening to ask the president a question during a press briefing the president held together with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan inside the Oval Office, Acosta shot up a question about the “sh&*hole countries” comment.

Oops!  Bad timing! That wasn’t what he was expected to ask the president at that particular time. Because of that, he was kicked out.

Acosta is CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent. He’s had many controversies with the Trump administration right since the president got to work, with the president constantly referring to CNN as the ‘Fake News Network.’

Acosta first started with the question, “Mr. President, did you say you want more people to come in from Norway?”

And in response, the president said, “we want them to come from everywhere, everywhere.”

As soon as the president gave that answer, a female voice can be heard saying, “Thank you, everyone. Thank you,” signaling the press that their time was up.

“Thank you, Jim. It’s time to exit,” the voice said.

Acosta is then heard trying to ask, “Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world, people of color?”

Trump then looks straight at Acosta, points him with his finger  and says “Out.”

Soon after, Acosta took to Twitter to share his mind on the whole experience. He wrote, “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.”

And in another tweet, he wrote, “What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH. Certainly not in the U.S.”

Acosta said that even after he’d been ordered out, he tried to follow up on the issue for comment, but he was once again rebuffed by the Oval Office team.

Journalist Steve Herman commented on the incident, saying, “This was the first time I’ve seen @realDonaldTrump as @POTUS point a finger and say “out” while reporters were attempting to ask questions.”
