Jim Acosta Fails Miserably When Trying To Embarrass Trump During India Press Conference

During a press conference in India, far-left CNN journalist Jim Acosta tried embarrassing President Trump overseas by asking him about “foreign assistance” in the upcoming election.

After trying to ignore Acosta for the 45-minute press conference, President Trump finally called on Acosta.

“Can you pledge to the American people that you will not accept any foreign assistance in the upcoming election?” Acosta asked.

“First of all, I want no help from any country,” President Trump said, “and I haven’t been given help from any country and if you see what CNN, your wonderful network, said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for the fact that they said certain things that weren’t true? Tell me, what was their apology yesterday? What did they say?”

“Mr. President,” Acosta interrupted, “I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying.”

“Let me tell you about your record, your record is so bad you ought to be ashamed of yourself,” President Trump said. “You have the worst record in the history of broadcasting.”

“I’m not ashamed of anything and our organization is not ashamed,” Acosta said.


Acosta has had a history of disruptive behavior at press conferences which is why his press pass was revoked back in 2018 after he swiped his hand at a young staffer at the White House and refused to give up the mic.

Then-White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said: “CNN, who has nearly 50 additional hard pass holders, and Mr. Acosta is no more or less special than any other media outlet or reporter with respect to the First Amendment. After Mr. Acosta asked the President two questions — each of which the President answered — he physically refused to surrender a White House microphone to an intern, so that other reporters might ask their questions. This was not the first time this reporter has inappropriately refused to yield to other reporters.”

CNN shot back, saying: “The wrongful revocation of these credentials violates CNN and Acosta’s First Amendment rights of freedom of the press, and their Fifth Amendment rights to due process. We have asked the court for an immediate restraining order requiring the pass to be returned to Jim, and will seek permanent relief as part of this process.”

Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham eventually ended the daily breifings because of outbreaks from people like Acosta.

“Ultimately, if the president decided it’s something we should do, we can do that, but right now he’s doing just fine and to be honest, the briefings had become a lot of just theater,” Grisham said. “And to be honest, the briefings have become a lot of theater. And I think that a lot of reporters were doing it to get famous. I mean, yeah, they’re writing books now. I mean, they’re all getting famous off of this presidency. And so, I think it’s great what we’re doing now.”
