Trump to reporter: ‘You are a terrible person’ – BBC News Video News

A reporter suggests to Trump that the migrant caravan is not “an invasion” but rather migrants slowly moving through Mexico towards the US border.

“Thank you for telling me that I appreciate it,” Mr Trump says.

“They weren’t’ actors. You think they were actors? They didn’t come from Hollywood,” Mr Trump says about one of his campaign ads.

The journalist refuses to hand over the microphone, leading to Trump to admonish him.

“You shouldn’t treat people that way,” Trump says.

When another journalist rushes to his defence, Trump responds, “well I’m not a big fan of yours either”.

“I think you should let me run the country,” he told CNN reporter Jim Acosta when pressed further about his immigration claims.

“That’s enough. Put down the mic.”

“You are a rude terrible person,” he added. “The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible. You shouldn’t treat people that way.”

“When you report fake news…you are an enemy of the people,” he said.

  1. Are y’all kidding me? Trump didn’t even let the guy finish his question completely. Shows how ill mannered and uneducated he is. What’s the matter trump? Can’t take the heat? Then get out of presidency.

  2. US President Donald J. Trump becomes a reference in confronting the (illegal) brown press, demanding his constitutional rights to be interviewed only by the white (legal) press. Asking President Trump about the allegations he is involved in is not only embarrassing, it is also undemocratic and unconstitutional, because this case is in court, and it can disrupt criminal investigations. Press professionals trying to get the news bore to be promoted often turn out to be from the white press, to become the brown press, which is a crime subject to punishments provided by law, and in that blind search for reporting hole, end up making the report bored. Press freedom and freedom of expression, in combating the false news of the brown press, to exalt the constitutional ethical values ​​of the true white press news. Juliano Dias. Journalist.

  3. Trump started it by interrupting a question with a dismissive comment („here we go“) and gesture (get on with it).

    Then, both kept going interrupting each other and Trump escalated it further by constantly insulting the reporter.

    The quality of CNNs journalism is irrelevant here. As president, one should (1) allow questions without disrespectful interruptions and (2) give a clear answer (where reporters shouldn’t interrupt).

    Trump treats journalists he doesn’t like much the same way dictators treat them in the countries he tries to stop immigration from.

    Freedom and democracy allow for those voices you don’t want to hear to be heard, Trumpey!

  4. The clever person who learn the real truth and he's professionals of the every single situation life he must answer the truth 4 every single question , and he must never hurt the other even in one word .

  5. Aren't you there for a question and answer session? That man was rude and disrespectful. The proper protocol is ask a question, get an answer, then ask a follow up question (if desired) then get an answer. Your turn is over, NEXT!

  6. The US-Americans want to promove the globalization, but when the result of the globalization and its imperialism (poverty and misery) are next to its door, they say: "terrorists, invaders, criminals". What are their bombers and soldiers in Iran, Afghanistan, Siria, Colombia, etc? Charity workers? This world is sick… ✌one love, one world, no more barriers, no more wars, peace and love ✌

  7. Acosta was not simply asking a reporter's question, but instead was trying to bait, vilify, and disrespect President Trump. Trump will push back harder & gruffly when he's pushed, and while this is something a statesman should not do and something Trump must discipline himself not to do, the guilt lies with Acosta's inexcusable behavior.

  8. It's disgusting seeing comment section of awful trashy old fucks defending this mass rapist for bullying a reporter for asking question. This is same kind of people that voted Brexit. Take them to slaughterhouse and kill them.

  9. I don't Think our leader is probably use to someone talking back to him but I am tired of the same old news and questions. What is actually hurting Americans and the opioid crisis is what I am worried about. Our food is more dangerous than a nuclear war..
