RAGING Donald Trump branded CCN reporter Jim Acosta a'terrible person
"The revocation of Mr. Acosta'sWhite House press pass, especially on fabricated grounds, is an absolute blow to freedom of the press", said Margaux Ewen, director of RSF's North America bureau. "This conduct is absolutely unacceptable", she said. "While President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it", CNN added. As the reporter then tried to ask a question about the Russian Federation investigation, a White House aide tried to take Acosta's microphone from him, but he refused to let go.
Mr Acosta questioned Mr Trump's reference to the caravan as an invasion, and Mr Trump defended the term.
Acosta held onto it, and raised his arm to stop the aide from taking it, in the process making contact with her.
When Trump calls him "fake news", it is much easier now for the American people to get behind that message, because they know Acosta has repeatedly lied about a physical altercation that was caught on tape.
CNN took to Twitter calling Trump's attacks on the media as "un-American".
Press secretarySarah Sanders says a reporter's access was suspended because he put "his hands on a young woman". "It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question".
"Honestly I think you should let me run the country and you can run CNN", he said in the press conference at the White House. He said, "I can do something fantastic, and they make it look not good". The White House has accused him of provoking confrontations, and he, in turn, has become a favorite target of insults lobbed by Trump's supporters, particularly during the president's raucous rallies.

But original video footage of the incident, captured on multiple network cameras, does not show Acosta placing his hands on the young woman at all.
Sanders alleged that Acosta "placed his hands" on a White House intern during a testy exchange with President Donald Trump. "History will not be kind to you", CNNMatt's Dornic, vice president of communications and digital partnerships, wrote on Twitter Thursday. That means, come January, the gavels for key congressional committees will pass from Republican legislators to Democrats, who are certain in a target-rich environment to issue subpoenas and hold hearings on matters ranging from alleged collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 election campaign to questionable spending on travel by members of the president's Cabinet. "We stand by our statement".
Acosta later retweeted Sanders' statement with his own comment, "This is a lie".
Jim Acosta is a joke and CNN should be ashamed of themselves. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting, and the way you treat other people is terrible.
During the news conference, Trump sparred with White House correspondents when they posed questions he did not like.
