CNN's Jim Acosta denied entry to White House

A White House staff member reaches for the microphone held by CNN's Jim Acosta as he questions US President Donald Trump

Jim Acosta is the chief White House correspondent for CNN, Donald Trump's most hated media organisation.

After being questioned about the migrant caravan and Russian Federation investigation during a post-midterms press conference, the president lashes out at the "rude, terrible" CNN chief White House correspondent.

On Wednesday evening, Acosta tweeted that he was denied entry to the White House grounds by the Secret Service, after his pass was taken off him.

Acosta was stopped by the Secret Service from entering the White House at about 7 pm.

Video of the incident quickly appeared online.

She added that Acosta's pass was suspended until further notice.

Acosta tweeted the White House's statement was a "lie".

The move followed an incident during President Trump's Wednesday news conference, in which Acosta challenged Trump about his claims regarding immigrants trekking through Mexico to reach the USA border.

It was at this point the female staff member attempted to take the microphone from Mr Acosta.

Mr Acosta asked the president about his reference to migrants travelling towards America as an "invasion".

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced the decision hours after the news network's Jim Acosta sparred with Trump during a raucous to-and-fro. "You are are a rude, awful person".

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, the nation's premier defender of the legal rights of journalists, joins the White House Correspondents' Association in vehemently objecting to the revocation of a CNN reporter's access credentials. "I think I'm just covering a story, honestly", Acosta said in a 2017 interview with The Washington Post about his reporting style.

Video of the press conference shows a young woman, presumably the intern, trying to take away the microphone as Acosta questions Trump.

"This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better", said CNN in a statement. "Revoking access to the White House complex is a reaction out of line to the purported offense and is unacceptable.We urge the White House to immediately reverse this weak and misguided action". When he went to the White House for "one last live shot", he said a security officer prevented him from passing through an entrance that he has used for the past five years. However, as noted by Acosta and many others, the people travelling within the "caravan" are still hundreds of miles from the U.S.

At the same time, Trump is able to continue his claims of the press being the "enemy" of the populace with the scathing statement from Sanders.

"The reason why Jim Acosta has been denied his White House pass is that he asked the President hard questions".

Acosta accused the president of attempting to frighten voters ahead of the midterms with ads depicting the migrant caravan as invaders. Acosta might have embarrassed the poor woman, but he didn't assault her. To NBC's Peter Alexander, who defended Jim Acosta: 'Well, I'm not a big fan of yours either'.
