President Donald Trump is not leaving anyone who points the finger at him. CNN reporter Jim Acosta had pointed his finger at Trump after Trump's controversial 'S***hole Countries' comment, and now, it's Trump's turn.
During a White House conference, Tuesday, Trump said reporter Jim Acosta 'out' of an Oval Office after Acosta annoyed him with racially charged questions.

Mr. Acosta yelled, Mr. President,'' thrice before he got the presidents attention. Acosta frantically shouted:
Did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway? Did you say that you wanted more people from Norway? Is that true Mr. President?
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.
After Acosta's roar at the Oval Office, Trump pointed directly at him and simply said, ''Out!'' Then Acosta exited the room before that a Trump staffer can be heard saying, ''Jim thank you.''
Later, Acosta took to his twitter to accuse the White House aides of obstructing him from asking questions.
In December 2017, the White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shut him down after he tried to hijack a press briefing. Acosta told Sanders that journalists make ''honest mistakes,'' but it doesn't make them ''fake news.'' Acosta was about to question her before Sanders cut him off.
