Donald Trump's White House Revokes Jim Acosta's CNN Press Credentials

CNN's Jim Acosta denied entry to White House

He also posted a tweet saying he was stopped by the Secret Service from entering White House grounds.

The View held a rousing conversation on Thursday about the White House's decision to yank Jim Acosta's press credentials after his blow-up with President Donald Trump.

Acosta began by challenging Trump's assertion that a caravan of Central American migrants making its way on foot through Mexico to the USA border represented an "invasion".

When Acosta tried to ask further questions, Trump became angry, demanding that the reporter sit down and give up the microphone. But in the original video, Acosta's arm appears to move only as a response to a tussle for the microphone.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration".

As US President Donald Trump answered questions from the press following his speech about Wednesday's midterm results, his turbulent relationship with some media outlets was evident.

At the conference Trump, when asked if he had "demonized immigrants" during the midterms campaign, replied: "No, I want them to come into the country". Only they would attack the President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of 1.5 hours including several from the reporter in question.

"In Jim's defense, I've traveled with him and watched him, he's a diligent reporter who busts his butt like the rest of us", Alexander said.

The White House Correspondents' Association, a coalition of the reporters who cover the executive branch, released its strong objections to the move, calling the decision "out of line" and "unacceptable".

But that question that I posed today was very timely, because just today, Patrick Casey, a leader of Identity Evropa, which is - which the Southern Poverty Law Center says is part of the alt-right and white nationalist movement, tweeted that he was at the White House today.

It all started when CNN's Acosta got into a heated debate with Trump after he asked the president about the migrant caravan. It was obviously a question he didn't like.

"Well, I'm not a big fan of yours either", Trump quipped, adding, "You aren't the best". I do think, Anderson, that this is a test for all of us. Officials in those countries also said the migrants committed acts of violence against police officers that left many wounded. "I think they're trying to send a message to my colleagues".

Acosta said the White House's account of the incident is "a lie".

Trump said that if Democrats brought forth strong legislation on issues important to them such as the environment, infrastructure, and healthcare, then it was possible some Senate Republicans would help pass the legislation and Trump would then sign it.
