White House suspends credentials for CNN's Jim Acosta

President Trump speaks during a news conference in the East Room of the White House on Wednesday. More

The CNN reporter's credentials were pulled Wednesday after his testy news-conference exchange with U.S. President Donald Trump.

She called Acosta's behavior "absolutely unacceptable".

The "Jersey Girl Embarrassed by Bob Menendez", as Conway has dubbed herself on Twitter, also said that she doesn't think "anybody should have - any young woman, particularly - should have somebody swiping away at them, grabbing the microphone back".

Sanders said Trump has given the press more access than any President in history.

Acosta attempted to ask another question about the Mueller probe, but Trump dismissed him by repeatedly saying, "That's enough", and motioning for Acosta's microphone to be handed to another reporter.

"The edited video looks authentic: Acosta appeared to swiftly chop down on the arm of an aide as he held onto a microphone while questioning President Trump".

Acosta steadfastly refuted Sanders' accusation, which she made via Tweetstorm, calling it "a lie".

So, as the president said that the question was racist, and I - he was literally having white nationalists at the White House.

"President for not supporting a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters".

In a later tweet, Sanders said the White House stood by its decision. As the Joker put it in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight: "I don't wanna kill you".

The White House, meanwhile, said it stands by its decision.

It's putting out doctored videos attempting to show that this CNN journalist did anything other than resist an attempt to remove the microphone from him - briefly.

During the event, the president refused to answer Acosta's questions about indictments in the Russian Federation investigation, saying, "I'm not concerned about anything with the Russian Federation investigation, because it's a hoax".

In announcing Mr Acosta's suspension, Ms Sanders said, "The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it is an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this administration".

"They are not only risky, they are disturbingly un-American", the network said, voicing its support for Acosta and "journalists everywhere".

Acosta was denied entrance on White House grounds on Wednesday evening for his nightly segment, and instead, recorded a conversation with a uniformed officer.

Trump added that the way Acosta had treated Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was "awful".

"We urge the White House to immediately reverse this week and misguided action", the WHCA wrote.

During the press conference, several other reporters were the target of Trump's hostility.

As more clashes with reporters followed, Trump, exasperated but energised, summed up what is sure to be repeated at the rallies where chants of "CNN sucks!" have become a favorite chorus.

When NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the mic for the next question, he defended Acosta as a "diligent reporter" earning Trump's ire.
