CNN’s senior White House corresponded Jim Acosta publicly heckled President Trump during the White House Easter Egg Roll Monday; screaming questions at the Commander-in-Chief as he celebrated the festivities with staff and their children in the nation’s capital.
Acosta was the sole reporter hurling questions as Trump spent time with guests on the White House lawn; yelling “Mr. President, What about the DACA children? Should they worry about what’s going to happen to them?”
“Didn’t you kill DACA, sir? Didn’t you kill DACA?” he pressed.

The CNN reporter is no stranger to controversy when it comes to his rocky relationship with the Trump administration; routinely lobbing loaded, anti-Trump questions at both the President and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
ACOSTA GOES GLOBAL: The CNN Reporter HUMILIATES HIMSELF at International Conference
CNN’s senior White House correspondent took his anti-Trump road show onto the international stage Thursday, following the Commander-in-Chief to Europe to harass the President over his “America First” foreign policy.
The President was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, touting his “America First” agenda while speaking with foreign leaders and business executives from the world’s largest corporations.
After Trump says of Davos “It’s been really successful…” I asked him how he can be America First if he’s rubbing elbows with big wigs. He did not respond. Video from @ElizLanders pic.twitter.com/jPWWRfTLir

“We want great prosperity, and we want great peace, and that really is the message. A lot of people are coming back to the United States for jobs, we’re seeing tremendous investment and today’s been a very exciting day,” said Trump while exiting the high-level meetings.
Acosta pounced within seconds, nonsensically asking Trump how he plans to advance his agenda while speaking with foreign leaders.
“Mr. President, can you be ‘America First’ but also be rubbing elbows with all these big wigs?” shouted Acosta as the President walked away.
CNN SHUTDOWN: Huckabee Sanders SILENCES Jim Acosta on LIVE TV
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders totally silenced CNN correspondent Jim Acosta during her daily briefing Monday; prompting the liberal reporter to complain on camera over his networks treatment by the Trump administration.
The Press Secretary was wrapping up her press briefing this week when she faced a last-minute flurry of questions; saying “We’re continuing to focus on the things that President Trump campaigned on. We’re excited about what we’ve done and where we’re going.”
Sanders left the podium and headed for the exits when Acosta pounced, saying “Sarah, can I ask a question?”
“Sarah, that’s the third briefing you’ve not taken a question from CNN. Do you expect the Justice Department to enforce all subpoenas, Sarah?” he continued to ask.
Acosta later complained on social media, writing “Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. #courage.”
