  • John Legend slams Trump during President's wild press conference

President Donald Trump sparred with reporters at his post-election news conference Wednesday, ordering several to sit down and calling CNN's Jim Acosta a "rude, terrible" person.

"That's enough. Put down the mic", Trump ordered Acosta, as the White House aide attempted to remove the microphone from him.

President Donald Trump's ongoing feud with Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, boiled over on Wednesday, with Trump verbally berating the journalist before the White House ultimately suspended his press access.

"We stand by our decision to revoke this individual's hard pass".

"Absolutely shameful, @PressSec. You released a doctored video", Dornic responded.

He said that until the revocation, Sessions' departure was likely to be the topic of Acosta's and others' reporting this evening.

She grabbed the microphone but Acosta wouldn't give it up.

When NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the mic for the next question, he defended Acosta as a "diligent reporter" - earning Trump´s ire. "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video". "I've edited video for 15+ years".


Journalists and others on social media criticized Sanders for distributing the video, which created the appearance that the encounter was more "violent" than it actually was. Video footage and photographs showed the intern grazing Acosta's arm in trying to pry the microphone away, and briefly making contact with the hand holding the microphone.

The White House is spreading fake news.

In response to the claims that he doctored the video, Watson told the Daily Dot that he did not adjust it in any way, and pointed to a defense of his video on Twitter.

The same three still frames are repeated in the zoomed-in clips of the incident in the Sanders video, its report adds. "Secret Service just informed me I can not enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit". "Jim Acosta has our full support", the network said.

The White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) also said such a decision is "unacceptable" and urged the White House that it "immediately reverse its decision". "We encourage anyone with doubts that this reaction was disproportionate to the perceived offense to view the video of the events".

At the earlier news conference Mr Trump, when asked by Mr Acosta if he had "demonised immigrants" during the midterms campaign, replied: "No, I want them to come into the country".

"I do think, Anderson, that this is a test for all of us", he said.
