CNN's Acosta owes Trump White House staffer an apology

Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

Far from apologizing for their behavior, the White House doubled down.

Acosta then attempted to ask a follow-up question, only to be told by the president, "That's enough".

Sanders claimed the incident proved Trump's "support for a free press". "I never thought in this country that I wouldn't be able to go and cover the president of the United States simply because I was trying to ask a question".

Other reporters noted that even though, as the BBC's Jon Sopel put it, Acosta may be a "royal pain in the ass" for Trump, he was just doing his job.

Trump and Acosta have long have a contentious relationship as the CNN reporter often asks the president questions that seemed created to illicit a reaction from him. You are rude, bad person. "To be honest. You aren't the best", he hit back. "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them". "You are a rude, bad person".

"Secretary Sanders lied", CNN said in a statement, saying the press pass suspension was "done in retaliation for challenging questions". "You shouldn't treat people that way".

Mr Alexander came to his colleague's defence. "Mia Love gave me no love", he said.

One of the few productive and peaceful moments of the event came when a Jewish reporter asked the president about God's place in his administration.

Mr Trump also delivered a stark warning to the Democratic Party following yesterday's midterm elections: Investigate me, and I'll investigate you - and the Government will grind to a halt.

"I understand", Alexander said, attempting to ask a question.

However, she is unsuccessful as the reporter manages to keep hold of the microphone, telling her: "Pardon me, ma'am". "That's enough. Put down the mic", he said, stepping away from the podium in apparent frustration. "When you report fake news, as CNN does a lot, you are an enemy of the people".

"They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American". "Only they would attack the President for not being supportive of a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of an hour and a half - including several from the reporter in question".

Some reporters pushed him on whether his campaign rhetoric on migrants from central America was divisive, as well as the Russian Federation investigation - but Mr Trump aggressively pushed back. "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behaviour clearly documented in this video", Sanders said, posting a video of the CNN reporter allegedly placing his hand on a young woman.

Acosta said in a tweet late on Wednesday he had been denied entry into the White House by the Secret Service. "Revoking access to the White House complex is a reaction out of line to the purported offence and is unacceptable". You have nationalists. You have globalists.

At another point, a reporter repeatedly questioned Trump about whether or not he's a racist and whether he has ever made racist comments.
