Adjust Comment Print

President Donald Trump struck back at a black female reporter's question about his calling himself "nationalist" as "emboldening white nationalists", calling it a "racist question", "insulting", and "very bad".

Back in August, during a press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump pointedly refused to take a question from Acosta, calling him Fake News.

"CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Donald added, after yelling at Jim to put down the mic.

A visibly annoyed President Trump responded: "Because I consider it an invasion".

As a female aide attempts to take the microphone away, Acosta brushes her aside.

"I don't know why you'd say that". You are a rude, bad person.'14. "You are not the best".

"That's such a racist question", Trump said to Alcindor, who is a black woman.

The day after America´s midterm elections, USA president lost his cool as he laid into the CNN star, the latest in a long history of testy exchanges between the pair, after the reporter (Acosta) shunned Trump´s orders to give up the microphone during a presser. "I'm simply asking the questions the public wants to know", she replied. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump told Acosta. "The way you treat other people is disgusting!"

"Those are some of the people who decided for their own reason not to embrace - whether it's me or what we stand for", Trump told reporters. "I'm fighting back not for me, I'm fighting back for the people of this country", he said. "They weren't actors", the president said. "You shouldn't treat people that way", Trump continued. He turned the question against the reporter, saying it was a racist question, that he loves America and that he has delivered many jobs for African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans.
