White House suspends credentials for CNN's Jim Acosta

WOW! Trump BLOWS UP at Jim Acosta: 'You are a rude, terrible person'

A visibly angry President Donald Trump branded CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta a "rude, bad person" and an "enemy of the people" in a testy exchange on national television on Wednesday the day after America's midterm elections.

A White House aide immediately approached Acosta and unsuccessfully tried to grab the microphone from him, Efe news reported.

President Donald Trump lashed out at CNN's Jim Acosta on Wednesday after the reporter challenged him for calling a caravan of immigrants an "invasion".

In a series of statements on Twitter, Sanders characterized Acosta's actions as "placing his hands on a young woman", though video of the exchange shows Acosta turning away from her as the intern reaches over his arm to take the microphone from his hand.

On Anderson Cooper 360, CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta addressed the White House revoking his press pass.

On Twitter, Acosta responded to Sanders' statement with a simple declaration, tweeting: "This is a lie".

Acosta pressed him on why he called the migrant caravan making its way from Central America to the US border an invasion.

After asking his follow-up question, the staff member takes the microphone off Acosta and hands it to the next journalist.

Appearing on CNN on Wednesday evening, Acosta told host Anderson Cooper: " I was just trying to ask a question of the president.

"CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", he added. "You are a very rude. person. the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is".

Just weeks ago, CNN was targeted with three suspicious packages that resembled the 14 pipe bombs a private individual is suspected to have sent to other prominent critics of Trump.

"They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American".

"Here we go", Trump complained.

"The most unsafe type of fake news and reporting and evidence is when you get into the fine details, the nuanced things that are shaped to present a certain viewpoint or decision or news a certain way", he said.

The journalist formerly worked as CNN's world political reporter, and covered the Obama administration while Barack Obama served as President. "Why doesn't CNN and all journalists who check and verify everything they report sue trump for slander?"

Acosta continued to ask questions, including whether Trump was "concerned" about potential indictments coming from the Mueller probe.

Trump clearly does not agree.

In the wake of the results, Trump held a 90-minute press conference marked by hostility. Trump has repeatedly called him "fake news", turning him into a symbol of the president's general animus toward the news media.

'I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN, ' he snapped. And I've read the strongly worded rebukes from the White House Correspondents' Association, from CNN and others.
