White House yanks pass of CNN correspondent

It lasts barely a couple of seconds, but the video of a White House staff member trying to take a microphone from the CNN reporter Jim Acosta during a chaotic press conference has become the focus of the latest online battle between Donald Trump supporters and opponents.

The day after his party lost its lock on the US Congress, President Donald Trump walked into a White House press conference ready for political combat, name-checking Republicans who he blamed for losing their seats and lashing out at reporters who challenged his assertions.

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

But his news conference, which stretched close to 90 minutes, quickly turned raucous when some reporters pushed him 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.

"You are a rude, bad person", the president said.

The president complained that the media did not cover the humming economy and was responsible for much of the country's divided politics. But that's - that's a really - I think something that people are looking at and are very concerned that there are white nationalists walking around in the White House, as the president says that just asking about them is racist.

"They are furious this blue wave was a blue tinkle", Levin said. "She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened", stated CNN, a network that frequently labels White House statements as false in its coverage and on its chyrons.

Emma Thompson has revealed that she shared a cheeky exchange with the Duke of Cambridge upon receiving her damehood at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

After the exchange, CNN, through its public relations department's Twitter feed, said Trump's attacks on the press have gone too far. "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are an enemy of the people".

To this, Trump responded, "You should let me run the country".

"In Jim's defense, I've traveled with him and watched him, he's a diligent reporter who busts his butt like the rest of us", Alexander said. In subsequent tweets, he explained that Secret Service agents working at a White House access point asked him to surrender his credential - known as a "hard pass" - to enter the grounds. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting, and the way you treat other people is frightful. "To be honest. You aren't the best", he said. "Some people saw that as emboldening white nationalists". "It's a very bad thing you said to me".

"Just sit down please", he said to Acosta, who tried to ask another question.

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

Sarcastically thanking him, Trump bluntly dismissed his comments and denied an ad campaign featuring migrants climbing a wall were "Hollywood actors". He also refused to take a question from April Ryan.
