President Trump announced that he will be visiting with all the top countries leaders at the G20 summit. As usual, a CNN reporter had to get rude and ask disrespectful questions to the President as he was leaving the White House today.
Alternet reported that CNN reporter Sarah Westwood asked President Trump whether he planned on telling Russian President Putin at their upcoming meeting not to interfere in the election.
“I’ll have a very good conversation with him,” President Trump said. Then, with venom in his voice and facial expression, he added: “What I say to him is none of your business!”
The President frequently lashes out at liberal reporters, but his insults and broadsides tend to seem performative — he hasn’t stated if he enjoys slamming reporters when he gets the chance.
But this question really appeared to get under President Trump’s skin, eliciting an outburst that showed how sensitive he is about the issue and prompting him to quickly move on to another question.
Before receiving this question, Trump had said of former Special Counsel Mueller’s Russia investigation and the continuing probes driven by congressional Democrats, “The Mueller thing never stops! … At what point does it end?”.
