Trump clashes with 'rude, terrible' CNN reporter

John Legend slams Trump during President's wild press conference

Acosta was involved in a fiery exchange with President Donald Trump during a lengthy, post-election news conference at the White House earlier Wednesday.

During the press conference, Trump dodged a question from Acosta when a White House intern walked up to take his microphone away.

President Donald Trump and CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta got into a heated verbal back-and-forth at the White House on Wednesday that resulted in the president telling the reporter to "sit down" and aides wrestling with the reporter to try and get the mic out of his hands.

Mr Acosta tweeted that he had been denied entrance to the White House by the Secret Service when he went in for an 8pm hit.

Footage of the incident shows the intern tried to reach under Acosta's arm to take the mic from him, and his arm came down on hers as he continued to try asking his question of Trump.

Acosta was repeatedly trying to ask Trump about his referral to a migrant caravan headed to the US from Central America as an "invasion".

"[Trump] came out right after his inauguration and said his inauguration crowds were bigger than President Obama's, when they weren't", Acosta previously said in a CNN segment. To Jim Acosta: 'CNN should be ashamed of themselves having you working for them. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is awful".

In a statement, CNN called out Trump.

CNN responded to the incident in a statement on Twitter, writing, "This President's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far".

Albright said videos like this pose an even greater risk of perpetuating misinformation than completely faked news videos, because they contain a grain of truth and will likely be given the assumption of accuracy.

President Donald Trump struck back at a black female reporter's question about his calling himself "nationalist" as "emboldening white nationalists", calling it a "racist question", "insulting", and "very awful". "They weren't actors", the president said. "Jim Acosta has our full support", the network said.

"If you did it well your ratings would be much better". Acosta refused. Trump backed away from his podium and briefly paced the stage.

Mr Trump took the rare step of mocking Republican candidates who kept their distance from him during the campaign because of concerns that his divisive messages on immigration would turn off voters - but lost anyway.

There is no news as to when Mr Acosta could receive his pass for White House duties once again.

In subsequent tweets, he explained that Secret Service agents working at a White House access point asked him to surrender his credential - known as a "hard pass" - to enter the grounds.

"This merits a forceful response, and a lawsuit would be reasonable", said Jonathan Peters, a historian who teaches at the University of Georgia Law School and is the press freedom correspondent for Columbia Journalism Review.
