ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A combative Donald Trump cut off a reporter who asked him about the rollout of his travel ban.

When a reporter from the BBC asked Trump if he would accept the rollout as a good example of the administration's "smooth running of government," and whether there were any mistakes, Trump cut off the reporter telling him to "Wait, wait, wait."

Trump insisted the rollout was "perfect."
