CNN's White House reporter Jim Acosta could be heard shouting at President Donald Trump as he walked off stage at the 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.

The president added he wants America to have “great wealth” so citizens are taken care of.

But Acosta tried to interrupt Trump on a question regarding climate change.

But CNN’s Acosta continued to shout a question about climate change as the president walked off.

Trump responded directly, “You weren’t called.”

“Thank you very much, everybody. I appreciate it. Thank you,” the president said before walking off the stage.

But CNN’s Acosta continued to shout a question about climate change as the president walked off.

“Mr. President…you didn’t answer the question!” Acosta shouted in part.

Acosta took to Twitter following the incident, saying:

“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 added in another social media post:

“As this video shows, Trump walks away from perfectly capable of hearing the questions on whether he believes in climate change.

Acosta is noted for frequently trying to interrupt the president during press conferences,

"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."

Last month, Trump humiliated Acosta by shredding him during a press conference in Japan, triggering the room to erupt in laughter.

The CNN White House correspondent Acosta attempted to accuse President Trump of cozying up to "dictators and autocrats" during international summits.

Trump denied the claims and quickly turned the table back on Acosta, eliciting laughter from the audience.

Acosta is noted for frequently trying to interrupt the president during press conferences, but due to Trump's shaky relationship with CNN, he never gets any answers to his questions.
