  • [VIDEO] Donald Trump, CNN's Jim Acosta Argue at Press Conference

The question came from PBS Newshour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor during Trump's news conference Wednesday, where he claimed victory in the midterm 2018 elections, which saw the Republican party lose the House of Representatives. "Even if President Trump doesn't intend it, some see him as directly appealing to the racists", she wrote.

After Acosta asked about the investigation of Russia's involvement in the 2016 election and Trump tried to turn to Garrett. Trump has also reportedly removed Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein from the investigation and appointed Matthew Whitaker as acting AG. At a press conference today, Trump fully lost it.

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

Trump responded by labelling Mr Acosta a "rude, awful person". "You run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better".

We've lost a few games, we played tough and we won. "I think everyone's been looking forward to the game". Jones bristled when asked if Saturday's win was the most significant of his near-three-year reign.

It got worse from there.

"I'll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them". "You are rude, awful person".

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blamed the suspension of privileges on Acosta placing his hands on a young woman. The way that you treat other people is frightful. "You shouldn't treat people that way".

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. However, this wound Trump up even more and he ended up saying he wasn't a huge fan of Alexander either.

Democrats’ Pickup Chances Rise In More House Races, Analyst Says
The GOP Senate victory was magnified because Democrats stood a solid chance of wresting control of the House from Republicans. But more significantly, polls suggest that Trump will lose control of the House of Representatives in today's vote.

The White House has suspended the press credentials of CNN's Jim Acosta following today's testy press conference clash with President Donald Trump. "When you report fake news-no".

Here is CNN's response, calling his attacks on the media "disturbingly un-American".

As Acosta tried to ask further questions, the POTUS insisted: "That's enough!"

He also repeatedly told April Ryan to sit down in an incredibly condescending tone, like he's talking a misbehaving preschooler.

In an interview published on Friday, Mr Trump told the Washington Times: "I don't view it as the Willie Horton ad at all". In Indiana, he'll have help from Hall of Fame basketball coach Bob Knight, who coached the Indiana University Hoosiers.
