FIREWORKS: Trump Tells CNN’s Jim Acosta to ‘Put Down The Mic’
President Trump unloaded on CNN’s Jim Acosta during a fiery exchange at Wednesday’s post-election press conference; demanding the white house correspondent “put down the mic” after the President said he’s “had enough.”
The President was speaking with reporters at the White House just hours after Americans headed to the polls in the high-stakes 2018 midterm elections when Acosta asked Trump to comment on the Democrats plot to renew their ongoing Russia probe.
