President Donald Trump couldn't help himself and embarrassed ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl by telling him he wouldn't be a good President.

On Wednesday, January 9, 2019, the 72-year-old mogul signed the anti-human trafficking bill and Karl immediately saw an opportunity to test Trump's patience.

As can be seen in the video being shared online, the President didn't appreciate Karl's question regarding other bills that could be signed and taught him a lesson in front of everyone.

KARL DIDN'T IMPRESS TRUMP

The commander in chief was in the process of discussing the government shutdown when Karl asked him if he couldn't sign bills that would allow some workers to get paid until a solution was found.

With a curious expression on his face, Trump asked the reporter if he thought he should do that, adding that he was well-aware of Karl's 'one-sided reporting.'

The ABC correspondent tried to answer the question but Trump interrupted him, asking for Karl's genuine opinion on the matter.

“Hey, Jon. No, seriously, Jon, do you think I should just sign? Tell me, tell me. Do you think I should just sign?”

TRUMP'S HARSH OPINION

Karl claimed that, if the President signed the bills, workers would get paid, but Trump had the perfect reply in store for him. According to the U.S. leader, the reporter should never be in his position.

Trump argued that, as President of the U.S., Karl would 'never get anything done' if he made the decision to sign the bills; words that left a mark on the reporter.

BATTLING THE PRESS

In late 2018, the commander in chief was also involved in controversy after banning CNN's Jim Acosta, one of the most vocal critics when it comes to Trump, from the White House.

The case was so serious that the President called off the annual White House Christmas party for the press, which came as no surprise for some of his supporters.
