President Donald Trump asked White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to leave the room during his interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
Mulvaney had a coughing fit that interrupted Trump’s response to a question about turning over his financial statement to Congress. The outtake-style exchange was captured and released by ABC...
“I don’t like that, you know, I don’t like that,” Trump said as the cameras moved around. “If you’re going to cough, please leave the room. You just can’t, you just can’t cough. Boy, oh boy.”
Someone, possibly Mulvaney, could be heard saying “sorry.”
One thing's for sure: President Trump doesn't like being interrupted when he's giving an interview.
