Jim Acosta Becomes Instant Hit in India After His Confrontation With Trump

John Legend slams Trump during President's wild press conference

Since Donald Trump stated Mr Acosta would receive a temporary ban, the reporter has been prevented from entering the White House. "They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American", the network said, voicing its support for Acosta and "journalists everywhere".

Trump has skipped the traditional presidential appearance at the White House Correspondents Association dinner the past two years, and media organisations have been hard-pressed to respond to the attacks.

About Acosta's suspension, Sanders said: "President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration" but that the White House would not tolerate "disrespectful" conduct from members of the press.

'When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people, ' he told him.

Acosta asked Trump why the caravan of migrants was emphasized as an issue in the just-concluded midterm races.

"As you know, Mr. President, the caravan was not an invasion".

But in the original video, Acosta's arm appears to move only as a response to a tussle for the microphone. "You and I have a difference of opinion".

Reporters pushed Trump on whether his campaign rhetoric on migrants from Central America was divisive - and on developments in a federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any coordination between Moscow and the Trump campaign.

"And I want people to come in".

Trump also barked at April Ryan, another frequent White House critic, repeatedly telling her to sit down and not speak out of turn. It's slowed down and then sped up at the moment Acosta's hand comes down to make it look like he's doing a karate chop or something. You are a rude awful person you shouldn't be working for CNN.

Trump and Acosta have long have a contentious relationship as the CNN reporter often asks the president questions that seemed created to illicit a reaction from him. The president also ordered microphones taken away from those he no longer wanted to hear from. She did not say to whom she was referring, but the implication was that it was Acosta.

'You are a very rude person, ' Trump told him. Trump stepped away from the lectern before coming back to slam Acosta, who was still talking. Yet CNN chose to double down on Acosta's tactics, proving that after three years, they don't at all understand why Trump keeps winning this game.

CNN released a statement calling the president "dangerous", claiming that he "does not respect a free press".

We've got more newsletters we think you'll find interesting. "The media grandstanding has gone overboard".

The decision comes after a tense standoff between Acosta and President Donald Trump during a press conference on Wednesday. "What would I do without you?"

"I'm talking to this gentleman".

"To say that, what you said, is so insulting to me", he said.

Media analysts said a concerted action by the press was unlikely. He doesn't like that there are some white nationalists who are supporting the president.

Mr Trump talked about his supposed popularity with black Americans and said he is more interested in advancing America's interests than having a globalist point of view.
