Scuffle Breaks Out In Rose Garden After Trump's Press Conference


New York Times reporter Katie Rogers posted a video the scene, showing former White House official and conservative pundit Sebastian Gorka calling someone a “punk.” Someone off camera could be heard saying Gorka could kick a reporter’s “punk ass.”

A number of right-wing influencers attended Trump’s Rose Garden event, where he announced an executive order to obtain citizenship information about people living in the U.S.

Before announcing his executive order, Trump hosted the right-wing influencers at a social media summit at the White House before the presser.

The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer also posted some photos from the event:
