As President Donald Trump was walking off the stage at the G7 summit after a press conference, far-left CNN journalist Jim Acosta shouted at the President for not answering a question.
Acosta was clearly upset that President Trump didn’t answer his question about climate change considering he shouted “You didn’t answer the question, Mr. President,” as President Trump walked off the stage.
Acosta quickly took to Twitter to complain about how the President ignored him as he was walking off of the stage.
“At the end of the news conference I asked Trump whether he believed in climate change. He walked away from the stage and didn’t answer the question.” Acosta whined on Twitter.
President Trump was clearly walking off the stage when Acosta started yelling. Acosta wasn’t done complaining: “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.”
Despite the interruption from Acosta, President Trump was very successful at the G7 conference. One of the highlights came when the President announced that the United States and Japan agreed to a “billion-dollar trade deal,” mainly focused on the trade of American agricultural products. The deal is expected to be finalized in September.
While talking to reporters, Trump announced, “We have been working on a deal with Japan for a long time. It involves agriculture. It involves e-commerce. It involves many things. We’ve agreed in principle.” Trump continued, “We’ve agreed to every point, and now we’re papering it and we’ll be signing it at a formal ceremony.”
Robert Lighthizer who is the United States Trade Representative announced that the deal was “very good news” and later added, “From our point of view it is extremely important for our farmers and ranchers and those who work in the digital space.”
The news was praised by many involved in the agricultural industry in America.
President of the National Pork Producers Council, David Herring said, “We thank the Trump administration for negotiating a trade agreement with Japan, a market that represented 25 percent of total U.S. pork exports last year. We look forward to rapid implementation of the agreement as international competitors are currently taking U.S. pork market share through more favorable access. The United States produces the safest, highest-quality and most affordable pork in the world. It is the preference of many Japanese customers and we look forward to competing on a level playing field again.”
