Trump slams CNN's Jim Acosta in explosive press briefing

“You’re a terrible person”: Trump lashes out at CNN reporter at surreal press conference

An association representing the Washington press corps urged the White House to immediately reverse "this weak and misguided action".

On Wednesday evening, Acosta tweeted that he was denied entry to the White House grounds by the Secret Service, after his pass was taken off him.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. It's ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the president for his rhetoric when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country". He said that "I can do something fantastic, and they make it look not good".

Acosta then badgered the president, asking, "Did you demonize immigrants?"

When the president tried to go to another journalist, Acosta declined to give up the microphone and asked about possible indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller based on the ongoing investigation into Trump's presidential campaign.

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".

Acosta accused the president of attempting to frighten voters ahead of the midterms with ads depicting the migrant caravan as invaders. "We are all Americans". To Jim Acosta, as he tried to explain the migrant caravan to the president: 'Thank you for telling me that, I appreciate it.'11.

The log ongoing bad air between Trump and CNN's White House correspondent reached a fresh rupture today, with the President calling Acosta a "rude, awful person" in what was supposed to be midterms victory lap by Trump. You run CNN. And if you did it well, your ratings would be much better.'12. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful", he said, referring to his press secretary. "You should not treat people that way".

Mr Alexander came to his colleague's defence. "I'm fighting back not for me, I'm fighting back for the people of this country", he said.

"God plays a very big role in my life", Trump said.

NBC's Peter Alexander defended Acosta, saying he is a diligent reporter, but Trump told Alexander he wasn't a fan of his, either.

"Just sit down", Trump said. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting, and the way you treat other people are terrible.

WOW - Trump unloads on Jim Acosta, says "CNN should be ashamed of themselves having you working for them".

Sanders claimed the incident proved Trump's "support for a free press".

In the wake of the results, Trump held a 90-minute press conference marked by hostility. You have nationalists. You have globalists. "Some called that as emboldening white nationalists".

"Such a racist question", Trump complained, adding that he found it "insulting".
