White House suspends pass of CNN’s Acosta

Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

President Donald Trump engaged in one of his most direct confrontations with a reporter, arguing with CNN's Jim Acosta at a news conference on Tuesday and calling him rude.

CNN's Jim Acosta was repeatedly admonished by Trump as a rude person who should not be working for the network, and he was accused of treating White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and others in a terrible manner.

During the exchange, the staff member is seen approaching Acosta before attempting to take the microphone off him. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump said to Acosta.

"We stand by our decision to revoke this individual's hard pass", Sanders wrote. The channel said the revocation "was done in retaliation for his [Acosta] challenging questions".

The reason for this was explained in a series of Tweets by White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders.

It all kicked off with CNN's Jim Acosta who first asked Trump a question on migration and pointed out Trump's campaign had an ad of migrants climbing a wall. "You run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be higher", Trump said.

It continued "they are not only risky, they are disturbingly un-American" and "while President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it". "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is awful".

Trump mocked Republicans who avoided campaigning with him before congressional elections and who were not elected during their races, referencing a list of candidates by name. "And you shouldn't be working for CNN".

"As you know Mr. President, it was not an invasion", Acosta said, citing no evidence for his claim.

Trump explained he wants immigrants to come to America, because its expanding economy needs the workers, but they need to come legally.

A White House aide immediately approached Acosta and unsuccessfully tried to grab the microphone from him, Efe news reported.

The press conference, which initially focused on simple political topics, quickly descended into chaos after Trump was asked about his politics and the controversial issue of Russian Federation meddling in the US's 2016 presidential election (the same election that put Trump in the White Hosue). "You and I have a difference of opinion".

You and I disagree on this, ' Trump said.

"They are furious this blue wave was a blue tinkle", Levin said. You are not the best. He said he's damned by the press for having either too few, too many or just the right amount of press availabilities.
