CNN’s Acosta Heckles Trump As He Walks Off Stage During G7 Summit

CNN’s Jim Acosta heckled President Trump as he walked off stage during the G7 summit in France.

Jim Acosta tweeted: “As this video shows, Trump walks away from perfectly capable of hearing the questions on whether he believes in climate change. He clearly heard and he didn’t want to answer it. Saying you want “clean air” and “clean water” isn’t the same as recognizing the climate change threat.”

CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta repeatedly shouted at President Trump as he ended a press conference in Biarritz, France at the G7 summit Monday.

“I think I know more about the environment than most people. I want clean air, I want clean water, I want a wealthy country, I want a spectacular country with jobs, with pensions, with so many things and that’s what we’re getting,” Trump said.

Trump continued, saying that he wants America to have “great wealth” so citizens are taken care of.

Acosta interrupted Trump, trying to ask a question about climate change. Trump responded simply, “You weren’t called.”

“Thank you very much, everybody. I appreciate it. Thank you,” the president said as he wrapped up the press conference.

As he began to walk offstage, CNN’s Acosta continued to shout a question about climate change at him. More
