US President Donald Trump kicked CNN’s star senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office on Tuesday after the latter pestered him with questions.
Videos of the exchange poste online showed Acosta yelling for “Mr. President,” at least three times before finally getting Trump’s attention.
“Mr President, did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway?” Acosta asked to which Trump responded: “I want them to come in from everywhere, everywhere. Thank you very much everybody”.

“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world… people of color,” Acosta asked as a follow-up question.
Trump then pointed directly at Acosta and said, “Out”.
