CNN's Acosta denied entry to White House following aggressive Trump press-conference

  • Trump campaigned for numerous Republicans ahead of the midterm elections which he saw as a success

Acosta tweeted Wednesday night that he was denied access when he tried to enter the White House.

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.

The president told him his time was done, telling him to sit down and to stop being a "rude, bad person".

Trump said at the time in a telephone interview with CNN that he would not ban reporters from briefings if he became president.

She continued: "This conduct is absolutely unacceptable". Another reporter also asked if Trump was a racist because of support from white nationalists.

Later, via Twitter, she said that she has interviewed white nationalists who say they are more excited by Mr Trump than they have been about other presidents. "Presidents never enjoy pointed questions from the press, but President Trump should respect their right to ask them and respect Americans enough to answer them".

Sanders later tweeted from the @PressSec account a video edit of the incident, which zoomed in and magnified the movements of Acosta's left arm. The channel said the revocation "was done in retaliation for his [Acosta] challenging questions". This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better.

"This is great news for Jim Acosta", Stirewalt said.

During the news conference, President Trump said Republicans "defied history" to make Senate gains in the United States midterms.

A staff member struggled with him for his microphone during the exchange.

'That's enough, Put down the mike, ' Trump told him. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump said to Acosta.

Acosta asked the president about his use of the word "invasion", which he said was "mischaracterizing" a group of migrants that remain hundreds of miles away. It was obviously a question he didn't like.

Trump talked about his supposed popularity with black Americans and said he's more interested in advancing America's interests than having a globalist point of view. White House staff decide whether journalists are eligible, though the Secret Service determines whether their applications are approved. "I mean, I think she could have won that race, but she didn't want to have any embrace". "They weren't actors. They didn't come from Hollywood".

Acosta said he learned that his access was withdrawn from a text message on his phone. When he went to the White House for "one last live shot", he said a security officer prevented him from passing through an entrance that he has used for the past five years.
