President Trump holds post-midterm press conference. He speaks with reporters just hours after American voters cast their ballots in the 2018 midterm elections 😉
President Donald Trump on Wednesday celebrated his party’s Senate victories, mocked members of his own party who lost after not seeking his support and even suggested he may be able to govern more effectively after losing a chamber of Congress.
When the President opened the floor for questions, CNN Jim Acosta was his usual annoying self, and Trump became defensive. A tense exchange played out when Acosta asked Trump about his decision to characterize the caravan of Central American migrants making their way to the United States as an invasion. You should let me run the country! When Acosta pressed Trump for an additional question all hell broke loose! 😆
Trump to CNN’s Jim Acosta: “You should let me run the country. You run CNN.”
“That’s enough. Put down the mic. CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude terrible person.” pic.twitter.com/xpRU9oakpf
