CNN's Jim Acosta denied entry to White House

President Donald Trump grew angry with several reporters at his press conference following Tuesday's midterms elections, at one point telling CNN's Jim Acosta he was a "rude, bad person" and the network should be ashamed to employ him.

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.

Mr Acosta tweeted that he had been denied entrance to the White House by the Secret Service when he went in for an 8pm hit. A female staffer tried to take it from him and Acosta held on.

But the White House maintains that Mr Acosta was in the wrong, with Ms Sanders tweeting that his actions were "absolutely unacceptable".

During the President's most recent run-in with Acosta, the journalist asked Trump why the so-called caravan of migrants heading from Latin America to the southern U.S. border was such an issue leading up to the midterms. Mr. Trump grew angry with Acosta and tried to move on to another question.

"Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN", the president said, resulting in the intern attempting to retrieve the microphone.

I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you working for them. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that Acosta's credentials have been suspended.

"I came in here as a nice person wanting to answer questions, and I had people jumping out of their seats screaming questions at me", said Trump, who talked for almost 90 minutes despite the run-ins with reporters. I didn't call you.'10.

He then said that he was glad that the Democrats ended up in control of Congress as opposed to Republicans keeping a majority by just a few seats because it would be easier for Trump and the Senate to work with Congress that way.

What do you think of this exchange? "You are are a rude, bad person".

The move to punish Acosta by removing his access to the White House is believed to be unprecedented. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question", she said on "Trish Regan Primetime.

"This merits a forceful response, and a lawsuit would be reasonable", said Jonathan Peters, a historian who teaches at the University of Georgia Law School and is the press freedom correspondent for Columbia Journalism Review.

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

Journalists may use a range of approaches to carry out their jobs and the WHCA does not police the tone or frequency of the questions its members ask of powerful senior government officials, including the President. "Even if President Trump doesn't intend it, some see him as directly appealing to the racists", she wrote.

Stirewalt said that either way, the episode hurts the political discourse as the Acosta-Trump feud overshadowed "a bunch of good questions" from reporters like Fox News' John Roberts and CBS News' Major Garrett.
