White House bans CNN reporter after confrontation with Pres

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

At that point, a White House intern shuffled over to Acosta and tried to take the microphone from him, three times.

After Acosta asked about the investigation of Russia's involvement in the 2016 election, Trump tried to turn to Alexander, but Acosta continued to ask questions. Trump told him "that's enough", called the investigation a "hoax", and then told Acosta he was a "rude, bad person" who treats people "horribly". Later, the White House pulled his press credentials.

Reporters don't get routine access to the Prime Minister's Office, but media credentials to access Parliament Hill are managed by the National Press Gallery, not the PMO. After CNN reporter Jim Acosta forcefully blocked a White House intern doing her job of taking away his microphone after a nasty spat with the president, the media have mostly defended him.

While it is possible that the video was intentionally doctored, the simpler explanation is that the video was transcoded, reducing the overall quality and clarity of the video, which in turn made the interaction between the reporter and intern less clear and open to interpretation.

President Donald Trump speaks to CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference in the East Room of the White House Wednesday.

Reporters and historians said it was hard to recall a similar episode.

But afterwards watching it on the television, I think it was a very ...it was a lovely gesture", she says. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding was a day to remember for all members of the family.

A video shared on Twitter by the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, makes Acosta's movement appear more violent. "Jim Acosta is always the story. To be honest. You aren't the best", he said. CNN released a statement via Twitter, as did The White House Correspondents' Association.

Many in the media industry were furious with Ms Sanders for sharing the video, including one of Mr Acosta's colleagues.

Faux Donald Trump and alleged parking spot-puncher Alec Baldwin said, "Trump attacks Acosta bc he needs someone, anyone, to be worse than him. We stand by our statement", Sanders told Fox News when reached for comment. What Acosta did with his arm - before he said, "Pardon me, ma'am", to the intern - had Twitter users up in arms. Getting a White House press pass is a privilege given to an individual, not a right. They are not only risky, the are disturbingly un-American. Trump has called the move an "invasion", although the group is nowhere near the United States border.

"What you said is so insulting to me", he said.

Trump told Ryan, of American Urban Radio Networks, repeatedly to sit down when she attempted to ask Trump about accusations of voter suppression. "I've never seen a president do anything like that". He called reporters rude, hostile, unfair.
