Donald Trump took questions from reporters on Thursday less than a day after Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas dropped a bombshell about the Ukraine scandal.
But during the exchange with reporters, Trump got into an altercation with CNN White House Correspondent Jim Accosta after he pressed the president to answer questions about his relationship with Parnas.
Trump seemed to growingly get frustrated and did not want to answer Acosta. It got to the point where the president yelled at the CNN reporter to be “quiet!”
Take a look at the altercation in the video clip below:
Trump claims he doesn't know who Lev Parnas is and says he takes lots of pictures with people and has never spoken to Parnas. Trump once claimed he didn't have anything to do with the payoff to porn star Stormy Daniels.
