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

Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

CNN said in a statement that the White House revoked Acosta's press pass out of "retaliation for his challenging questions" on Wednesday.

"This conduct is absolutely unacceptable", Sanders said. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. "While President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it'".

Next, Acosta attempted to ask another question and refused to yield the microphone, even when his turn was up and a young woman-described by some media outlets as a White House aide or intern-tried to take it back. As a female aide attempts to take the microphone away, Acosta brushes her aside.

So, as the president said that the question was racist, and I - he was literally having white nationalists at the White House. After Acosta finally gives the mic up, Trump chose to attack him personally.

The White House has suspended the press access of CNN reporter Jim Acosta after a fiery exchange during a press conference today.

Earlier, Acosta had tweeted that he was denied entrance to the White House. Trump then said he wanted immigrants to "come in legally".

Invoking the words of a fellow writer, Rowling cited George Orwell's 1984 to denounce the White House's actions.

The video Sanders tweeted had been slowed down to show the incident in greater detail, but it did not invent or make up the part where Acosta's arm comes into contact with the intern's.

Some 35 Senate seats were in play, as were nearly 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature. Democratic favorite Conor Lamb stunned Washington by winning a special election in the state and faced Republican Rep.

Sanders accused Acosta of "placing his hands on a young woman" as the reason for pulling his credentials in a tweet.

"History will see what a good job we did in getting people over the finish line", Trump said, noting that nine of the 11 candidates for whom he campaigned in the last week were victorious.

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

In response, Acosta said, "This is a lie". "Jim Acosta has our full support". The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting, and the way you treat other people are awful.

The decision comes after a tense standoff between Acosta and President Donald Trump during a press conference on Wednesday.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that CNN is "fake news" and incited his followers to chant the phrase at representatives of the news organization during his campaign rallies.

Acosta was asked by an agent of the US Secret Service for his accreditation after leaving the presidential building, according to a video of the moment shared by the journalist on Twitter.

Since Donald Trump stated Mr Acosta would receive a temporary ban, the reporter has been prevented from entering the White House.
