Trump shouted him down.

Trump called Acosta a "rude, awful person" and an "enemy of the people" at Wednesday's post-election question-and-answer session with reporters.

In a tweet Mr Acosta says he was stopped by the Secret Service when he tried to re-enter the White House on Wednesday evening. The CNN reporter has made a name for himself by asking combative questions of Trump and other administration officials.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, senior White House communications advisor Mercedes Schlapp insisted that the intern was "shaken up" and "intimidated" by Acosta and added "what we are seeing is bad behavior that can not be tolerated".

Joy Behar said she seconded a theory saying Trump set up the altercation to distract from more pressing matters, like the co-called caravan and Democrats taking over the House of Representatives.

"(Sanders) provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened.

"A free press is vital to democracy, and we stand behind Jim Acosta and his fellow journalists everywhere", the statement said. Last night, the Washington, D.C., home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson was targeted by protesters, and police were called to his house.




That's when CNN executive Matt Dornic got involved, alleging that Sanders was spreading "actual fake news" by using a "doctored" video to make Acosta's bad behavior look worse.

His exchanges with CNN's Acosta and another reporter for the NBC network turned bitterly personal, unusual even for the adversarial nature of presidential press conferences. "That's not the way you're supposed to be running a press operation", he said. "Jim Acosta has certainly does that and this is a moments that not just all reporters but all Americans should be really concerned about and stand together against". "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", Acosta said.

Costa was called a "rude, awful person" by Trump at the press conference when he questioned the president. "Revoking access to the White House complex is a reaction out of line to the purported offense and is unacceptable".

The White House has suspended the credentials of a CNN journalist hours after a testy exchange with US President Donald Trump. "I think that you can't be surprised if they're a little crunchy". Ned Price, a spokesman for the National Security Council under President Barack Obama, said Trump's intention at the press conference was clearly to rile up his political base after his party lost control of the House in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Sanders also shared a video clip that matched one tweeted by Paul Joseph Watson, an editor of the far-right new site Infowars, which purported to show that Acosta touched the aide as she tried to take a microphone away from him.

President Trump dismissed his characterization of the caravan as a "difference of opinion", adding, "I want them to come into the country, but they have to come in legally".
