CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta said on Twitter that when he tried to ask President Donald Trump questions in the Roosevelt Room, White House aides “shouted” in his face to “drown out” his questions. The tweet has since gone viral:

He followed up with several other tweets:

Original video did not show Acosta, but he could be heard asking President Trump questions after members of the press had been told to leave. He asked Trump if he only wanted “Caucasian or white” people to immigrate to the United States. Trump responded with one word: “Out.”


Now, a different video angle has been released, and it tells a different story than what Acosta told his 500,000 followers. Acosta was standing behind a couch and repeatedly asked Trump questions after he was told to leave along with the other members of the press.

There were clearly no press aides shouting in his face, as he had claimed.


You can even hear a press aide politely saying, “Jim, thank you.”
