Trump to reporter: 'You are a bad person'

Trump Press Conference Acosta Rude

Trump Press Conference Acosta Rude

A reporter suggests to Trump that the migrant caravan is not "an invasion" but rather migrants slowly moving through Mexico towards the USA border. Acosta pressed Trump, and POTUS erupted in anger.

"I'll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Trump scolded Acosta.

When Alexander asked Trump if he's trying to pit Americans against each other with his rhetoric about Democrats, he retorted "what are you trying to be [Acosta]?"

Mr. Trump responded, "Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN".

The president's mood turned sour Wednesday after reporters pressed him on why he referred to a migrant caravan making its way to the US on foot through Mexico as an "invasion". It's unclear how he believes the network's projections led to voter suppression.

He then berated Acosta for the way he questioned White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in briefings.

Trump got defensive when discussing the controversial ad he recently ran against the caravan, explaining the people in it were "not actors".

"I had one other question if I may ask on the Russian Federation investigation", Acosta pleaded.

"They weren't' actors. You think they were actors?" "You aren't the best".

As Acosta attempted to ask a follow-up question, the President made it clear he was moving on to another reporter.

"When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people", Trump told Acosta.

When another reporter shouted a question a few minutes later, Trump asked her to sit down.

"Sit down. I didn't call on you ..." It's such a hostile media.
