Trump threatens to pull more reporters' credentials

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference in the East Room at the White House in Washington Wednesday Nov. 7 2018

In response to the incident, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement on Twitter saying Acosta placed his hands on the intern and his pass was being suspended "until further notice".

But the White House maintains that Mr Acosta was in the wrong, with Ms Sanders tweeting that his actions were "absolutely unacceptable".

"The White House Correspondents' Association strongly objects to the Trump Administration's decision to use US Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship", the group said.

Mr Acosta asked the president about his reference to migrants travelling towards America as an "invasion". When asked by a reporter if he wanted Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to "rein in Robert Mueller", Trump said, "What a stupid question that is". "You run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be higher", Trump said. "She shouldn't be. You've got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect".

Republicans maintain grip on the US Senate in midterm vote
Nor are Democrats likely to craft a governing coalition so long as they cleave to the country's increasingly discredited elites. Pelosi is nationally unpopular, and Republicans have often tied Democratic House candidates to her agenda to win races.


This all comes after the suspension of Jim Acosta from his reporting duties at the White House.

He then turned his attention to National Urban Radio's April Ryan - whom he repeatedly ordered to "sit down" at Wednesday's contentious press conference. Trump on Wednesday accused Alcindor of asking a racist question when she inquired about the president receiving support from some white nationalists.

Nearly immediately, there has been a major backlash for Sanders to resign in the wake of sharing the video, which was created by the widely discredited alt-right site InfoWars. "You rudely interrupted him", Trump told her, referring to another reporter. This is a very special place.

On Friday night, CNN commentator Nina Turner weighed in on President Donald Trump's recent attacks on reporters.

Knapp said, "It took a couple of seconds for people to realize what was going on and once that happened it was just utter chaos ". His classmate said he suffered serious post traumatic stress disorder after his tour and sought help from therapists and doctors.


Trump also criticized CNN contributor April Ryan.

Conway said Acosta should not have swiped at the White House aide before "grabbing the microphone back". "She doesn't know what the hell she is doing".

Trump also called out Acosta for his well-documented and theatrical spats with Sanders during the normal course of press briefings. As for what the president had to say about Mr. Acosta, Trump said he believes Acosta "is a very unprofessional man".

At the conference Trump, when asked if he had "demonized immigrants" during the midterms campaign, replied: "No, I want them to come into the country". I mean, she intentionally disseminated doctored video to discredit a reputable journalist. "Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately because you can see for yourself what it is, perception is reality with this president".
