BREAKING: President Trump rips into CNN’s Jim Acosta during heated argument at press conference (VIDEO)

NOVEMBER 7, 2018

During a press conference at the White House Wednesday, following the midterm election results, President Trump got into a heated exchange with CNN reporter Jim Acosta, when he stood up to ask questions about the migrant caravan.

Acosta slammed the president for calling the caravan an “invasion,” and said he demonized immigrants. “They’re hundreds of miles away, it’s not an invasion,” Acosta claimed.

Acosta continued trying to ask questions, with Trump continuing telling him, “That’s enough, put down the mic!”

Acosta asked Trump if he was worried about indictments coming against his administration.

“You’re a rude and terrible person,” Trump told Acosta, ordering him to put down the mic.  He also slammed Acosta for the way he treats White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

At one point, an exasperated President Trump told Acosta, “Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN – and if you did it well, your ratings would be much higher.”

NBC’s Peter Alexander jumped up and tried to defend Acosta, which didn’t set well with the president either, who said, “Well, I’m not a big fan of yours either. Sit down.”

“When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people,” Trump said.

    Way to go Mr.President! I didn’t vote for you to be nice to news reporters. I voted for you to do the hard work of leading this country out of the 16 years of mess the last 2 Presidents left it in. I don’t have to like you but I do respect what you have done to improve our country. Democrats need to think about these statements.

    There is really something mentally wrong with Jim Acosta!! He looks off and for sure acts like he has shit for brains!! I would have asked for him to be escorted out……FOR GOOD! I, for one, have had enough of the disrespect from the press!!!!!!!!!

    Really, really sick of the media and this prick is one of the worse. But, let’s face it, it is about to get worse. The Democrats don’t care about this country. They care about getting their way. This piece of scum is exactly the same. Making a scene and him being in the spotlight. His parents must be so proud.

    Invasion according to the Dictionary the came from Apple. 2nd and 3d definition are right on for the ‘Migrant Invasion’.

    an instance of invading a country or region with an armed force: in 1546 England had to be defended from invasion | the Allied invasion of Normandy.
    • an incursion by a large number of people or things into a place or sphere of activity: stadium guards are preparing for another invasion of fans.
    • an unwelcome intrusion into another’s domain: random drug testing of employees is an unwarranted invasion of privacy.
