President Trump calls CNN's Jim Acosta 'rude, awful person' at press conference

CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta was captured wrestling with an unidentified White House aide for possession of a microphone while he attempted to ask President Trump questions during Wednesday's press conference.

"It's not an invasion", Acosta instructed Trump at a White House news conference focused on the results of the midterm elections.

In a stinging put down of Acosta, he said: "I tell you what CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them".

Acosta tried to interrupt, saying Trump was being unfair.

"Pardon me, ma'am", Acosta said.

ACOSTA: They're hundreds of miles away.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat rock star makes history
Having turned 29 last month, Ocasio-Cortez will inch out the previous holder of the distinction , New York Democratic Rep. The lopsided victory for Ocasio-Cortez is hardly a surprise, given the deep blue nature of her Brooklyn district.

Asked specifically about the future of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Trump says, "I'd rather answer that at a little bit different time". You are rude, bad person. "If you did it well your ratings would be much better".

When Acosta brought up the Trump administration's ad, Trump said the information in the commercial, which some deemed racist, is fact.

'I mean, I know you have it written down and you're going to tell me - let me tell you, it's a racist question'.

Trump says he's been hearing about investigations since he began running for president and refers to it as "investigation fatigue". "You should not be working for CNN". And the way you treat other people is disgusting.

Trump continued to be combative when Peter Alexander from NBC News got his turn at the mic next, and defended Acosta as a diligent reporter.

"I consider it to be an invasion", Trump said.

On Twitter, the singer called Trump a "fucking embarrassment". "You should not treat people that way". Alcindor, who is black, asked whether Trump thought his declaration during the campaign that he's a "nationalist" had emboldened white supremacists who call themselves "white nationalists".
