CNN's Acosta denied entry to White House following aggressive Trump press-conference

CNN's Acosta denied entry to White House following aggressive Trump press-conference

A White House intern tried to step in and take the mic from Acosta, but when he held onto it, she backed away.

Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump called Acosta a "rude, bad person" during a press conference and tried to cut off his questioning.

It all started when CNN's Acosta got into a heated debate with Trump after he asked the president about the migrant caravan. "To be honest. You aren't the best", he hit back.

Sanders shared the video late Wednesday night in an attempt to justify the White House's decision to revoke CNN reporter Jim Acosta's press credentials after he sparred with Trump.

"You should let me run the country", Trump said.

The White House doesn't want us to believe what we're seeing, so they're showing us things that are unbelievable. When an intern tried to take the mic from Acosta to let the next reporter ask a question, he continued needling the president, who finally called him a "rude, bad person". "And the way you treat other people is disgusting".

Acosta began by challenging Trump's assertion that a caravan of Central American migrants making its way on foot through Mexico to the United States border represented an "invasion". Later, via Twitter, she said that she has interviewed white nationalists who say they are more excited by Trump than they have been about other presidents. He has criticized fake news, lies in the media, and partisan press outlets that spread propaganda instead of reporting news.

Matt Dornic, a vice-president at CNN, said: "Absolutely shameful, @PressSec". However, this wound Trump up even more and he ended up saying he wasn't a huge fan of Alexander either.

Faux Donald Trump and alleged parking spot-puncher Alec Baldwin said, "Trump attacks Acosta bc he needs someone, anyone, to be worse than him".

And CNN has slammed the White House for its actions.

A few hours later, Acosta announced on Twitter that he was denied access to the White House and his "hard pass" had been revoked. It also remains to be seen whether White House reporters will walk out, or show solidarity with Acosta and CNN in other ways. "When you are holding something and you snatch this from me, this is now an extension of me and that means you've battered me, you've assaulted me".

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump also told April Ryan of the Urban National Radio Network to "sit down" and wait her turn.
