An irritated President Trump asked his chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to leave the room after he coughed during an interview in the Oval office.

The bizarre moment was captured in 'Donald Trump - 30 hours' as ABC News's George Stephanopoulos asked the president about his financial statement with Mr Trump describing it as "fantastic".

Mr Trump paused the interview, saying "let's do that over, he's coughing in the middle of my answer", pointing at Mr Mulvaney, before adding: "I don't like that... if you're going to cough please leave the room."
