I have always found it difficult to understand why reporters feel the need to grandstand to the detriment of the country when the president is abroad or as in this case where he is welcoming a foreign leader. So Acosta, who couldn't even point to Kazakhstan on a map starts trying to ask 'gotcha' questions that are US domestic politics and show CNN's bias and inability to understand plain language, rather than try to investigate what the US and Kazakhstan will be discussing. It shows that CNN couldn't care less about the country only about feeding their Trump Derangement Syndrome.
I must admit I would have handled the question somewhat differently the response from the president should have been:
"We want a merit based immigration system so that immigrants can bring expertise and skills to this country. For some reason the media especially CNN seem to believe that merit based immigration would mean more immigrants from Norway than from Africa. I find this racist thinking by reporters like you unacceptable..... OUT!"
