Acosta was eating dinner at Jean Georges in New York City, when he spotted former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Reince Priebus and President-elect Donald Trump having a private dinner there as well.

Acosta started live-tweeting that he saw the three of them, what they were eating at dinner and how they were acting.

Twitter users quickly took notice of Acosta’s tweets — but they weren’t the only ones. Someone in accompany with Trump noticed Acosta from afar.

“Moments ago…Trump: Hello Jim. #busted,” Acosta tweeted.

Anderson Cooper then asked Acosta how he was able to get inside the restaurant. Acosta said he made a reservation after getting a tip beforehand.
