US President Donald Trump points to CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a post-election press conference in the White House

"That press conference was upsetting to watch, but not as upsetting as it was for this woman", Bee said, before playing footage of a White House aide attempting to wrestle the microphone out of Acosta's hand.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday clashed with CNN´s White House correspondent Jim Acosta, branding him a "rude, bad person" in a testy exchange.

After repeatedly asking the president questions, provoking a heated outburst, an intern stepped forward to try to take a microphone from the CNN reporter as he moved to evade her.

President Donald Trump clashed with CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference in the East Room of the White House.

This is clearly inappropriate and unprecedented punishment by the Trump administration for what it perceives as unfair coverage by the reporter, and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders' false description of the events leading up to it is insulting not only to the nation's journalists, but to its people.

The heated exchange began after Acosta clung to the microphone and persisted with questions about the president's repeated and angry denunciation of a caravan of poor Central American migrants making their way through Mexico to the U.S. border.

The president then turned to NBC News' Peter Alexander, who tried to defend Acosta.

Mr Trump told him: "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them".

Trump also accused Acosta of treating Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a way that was "awful". "While President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it", CNN added.

In response, CNN said "this president's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far", in a statement.

He said he is discriminated against because of his age, and that he encounters problems in society on a daily basis. Mr Ratelband is a media personality and motivational speaker, who is a trainer in neurolinguistic programming.

"They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American", the network said.

After that, President Trump did his best to brush off Acosta's follow-up questions without answering.

"It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today's press conference", CNN communications said in a statement posted to Twitter.

And James asked how the media can deal with a President that will lie to them.

Soon after, he shared a video of a Secret Service agent confiscating his White House press credentials.

She added, "President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history".

As Acosta tried to ask further questions, the POTUS insisted: "That's enough!"

Acosta has always been a bitter adversary of the White House.

In the wake of the results, Trump held a 90-minute press conference marked by hostility.

She did not say to whom she was referring, but the implication was that it was Acosta. Following one of many fiery exchanges with the Trump administration, Acosta railed against Trump in 2017 and called him "a purveyor of fake news". "Why doesn't CNN and all journalists who check and verify everything they report sue trump for slander?"
