Trump BLOWS UP at Jim Acosta: 'You are a rude, bad person'

Nixon limited access ― for example, he took only print journalists who had written favorable stories about him on his groundbreaking trip to China ― but he did not restrict individual journalists' ability to do their jobs, Brinkley said.

A visibly angry President Donald Trump branded CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta a "rude, awful person" and an "enemy of the people" in a testy exchange on national television on Wednesday the day after America's midterm elections.

While many reporters joined in defending Acosta, several others were quick to point out that they felt he acted inappropriately, "embarrassing the profession".

The White House on Wednesday suspended the press pass of a CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta who earlier sparred with Donald Trump at a news conference, in which the United States president branded the journalist an "enemy of the people".

I have posed the question to Sarah Sanders, why - why was Patrick Casey here, and what - who was he meeting with?

In a statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders called Acosta's behavior "absolutely unacceptable" and said his White House press pass would be suspended "until further notice". She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened. "We stand by our statement". "This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better", CNN added. "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behaviour clearly documented in this video", Sanders tweeted.

The White House had not commented on the video at the time of writing.

Rizzo: Nats made offer to Bryce Harper late in season
Even though Harper is still only 26, a 14-year deal with an average annual value of $30 million per season felt a bit excessive. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes).

With Sessions Out, Dems Fear for Future of Mueller Probe
Mueller is investigating Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election and any collusion by Trump's campaign. The special counsel's office declined to comment Wednesday after Sessions' resignation.

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. Surely you don't trust InfoWars.? "We do have to stick together, but Jim Acosta makes it awfully hard to have journalistic solidarity in something like this".

Trump responded: "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them".

New York, November 8, 2018-The Committee to Protect Journalists today called on the White House to restore the credentials of Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent. When he tried to follow up with another question, Trump said, "That's enough!" and a female White House aide unsuccessfully tried to grab the microphone from him. "So that White House intern should be arrested for battery".

A few hours later, Acosta announced on Twitter that he was denied access to the White House and his "hard pass" had been revoked. As I told the officer, I don't blame him.

Matt Dornic, the vice president of communications for CNN, went as far as to accuse the White House of doctoring the video.

Despite obvious footage showing Acosta bringing his hand down on the intern's arm to block her from taking his microphone, CNN is standing by their man and doubling down on their attacks of the president.
