White House accuses CNN reporter Jim Acosta of assaulting intern

John Legend slams Trump during President's wild press conference

The White House suspended the press credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Wednesday, hours after Acosta tangled with President Donald Trump during a televised news conference.

The day after America´s midterm elections, United States president lost his cool as he laid into the CNN star, the latest in a long history of testy exchanges between the pair, after the reporter (Acosta) shunned Trump´s orders to give up the microphone during a presser.

The suspension comes after a heated confrontation on Wednesday between Acosta and President Donald Trump during a news conference.

CNN's Jim Acosta asked whether Trump "demonised immigrants" during the midterm campaign by releasing a video depicting Latin Americans scaling walls while warning of an "invasion".

After an exchange with the president over Trump's rhetoric toward migrant caravans, a woman stands up and attempts to grab the microphone from Acosta twice. But that's - that's a really - I think something that people are looking at and are very concerned that there are white nationalists walking around in the White House, as the president says that just asking about them is racist.

"They are not only risky, they are disturbingly un-American", the network said.

Sanders "provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened", the U.S. cable network said. Trump lingered from his podium a few steps before returning to give Acosta an old-fashioned tongue-lashing. "You run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be higher", Trump said.

"The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it's an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration", Sanders wrote. "I like real news, not fake news", he said.

"They can play that game, but we can play it better", he said. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful", he said, referring to his press secretary. He said he's damned by the press for having either too few, too many or just the right amount of press availabilities. He was promoted to national political correspondent in 2012, then made the senior White House correspondent in 2013. You are a rude, bad person.

"Just sit down please", he said to Acosta, who tried to ask another question.

Alcindor moved on to a different topic.

John Legend criticized President Trump on Twitter Wednesday. He threw out a hasty question about the Russian Federation investigation, but President Trump spoke over him. He also refused to take a question from April Ryan.
