Donald Trump attacks CNN’s Acosta, calls him ‘rude’, ‘terrible’; suspends WH pass

Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

During a press conference on Wednesday, President Donald Trump called CNN's Jim Acosta a "rude, bad person" after the reporter tried to ask several questions, but was cut off or dismissed by the commander in chief.

Fellow journalists and members of the White House press corps came to the immediate defense of CNN's Jim Acosta on Wednesday after the Trump administration revoked his press credentials.

The White House Correspondents' Association released a statement blasting the Trump administration for revoking Acosta's press pass.

The White House later accused Acosta of "placing his hands on a young woman".

Sanders added that the White House was suspending Acosta's press pass, which is a requirement for reporters to get access to the White House.

"This is a lie", Acosta tweeted back at Sanders.

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 bad".

"In an explanation, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied.

President Trump has given the press more access than any president in history", Sanders continued.

Reuters was first to report that the Pentagon had balked at the initial request from the Department of Homeland Security. One official says that DHS was informally discouraged from making the request by the defense department.

The news outlet said Acosta had the network's full support.

"I do think, Anderson, that this is a test for all of us", Acosta said.

Jim Acosta is a joke and CNN should be ashamed of themselves. Trump has repeatedly called him "fake news", turning him into a symbol of the president's general animus toward the news media.

Many prominent Republicans lashed out at Acosta for his behavior, blasting many of his defenders in the press pool at the same time. "Here we go", Trump said to Acosta. "You should not be working for CNN". As I told the officer, I don't blame him. "You are a rude, awful person".

He begins by questioning him on his comments about the "migrant caravan" Trump has claimed is heading for the USA before turning to Russian Federation.

"As you know Mr. President, it was not an invasion", Acosta said, citing no evidence for his claim.

His exchanges with CNN's Mr Acosta and NBC News' Peter Alexander turned bitterly personal, unusual even for a forum where the nature of their jobs often put presidents and the press at odds. You are rude, awful person.

Trump explained he wants immigrants to come to America, because its expanding economy needs the workers, but they need to come legally. You are not the best. "I'm fighting back not for me, I'm fighting back for the people of this country". He said Acosta held on to the microphone as the intern reached for it and later posted a few pictures from the press conference to prove his point.

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