Donald Trump Insults CNN Reporter in Heated Press Conference

You are a rude terrible person! Trump and CNN's Acosta get into shouting match

CNN's Jim Acosta got into a minor scuffle with a young White House staffer during President Trump's post-election press conference in the East Room of the White House today.

During a raucous news conference that lasted close to 90 minutes, he cast the congressional election results as "very close to complete victory" for Republicans and said he could negotiate easier with Democrats on some issues anyway. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said.

CNN's Jim Acosta took Trump to task, grilling the president on a recent campaign ad depicting a thousands-strong "caravan" of Central American migrants heading for the U.S. border as an "invasion".

Acosta accused the president of attempting to frighten voters ahead of the midterms with ads depicting the migrant caravan as invaders.

A visibly annoyed President Trump responded: "Because I consider it an invasion".

The exchange between Trump and CNN's professional provocateur quickly escalated, which ended up with Trump embarrassing Acosta.

Trump wanted to move onto another reporter, but Acosta wouldn't give up the microphone when an aide sought to tug it away from him.

He repeated those themes in Georgia, urging voters to "look at what is marching up - that's an invasion". Obama's appearance on the campaign trail is his second in three days.

When NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the mic for the next question, he defended Acosta as a "diligent reporter" - earning Trump´s ire.

Acosta still refused to quit badgering, prompting Trump to say: "Just sit down please.

Presidents never enjoy pointed questions from the press, but President Trump should respect their right to ask them and respect Americans enough to answer them". Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, and Trump's 2016 presidential race rival, tweeted, "The media is not the enemy of the people".

President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused the PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, who is black, of asking a "racist question" about whether his rhetoric emboldened white nationalists. "You aren't the best". On Oprah: 'I don't know if she likes me anymore, but that's okay.'7.

He added: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".

And Trump interrupts him, saying "I'm not a big fan of yours either, to be honest. Let me tell you, it's a racist question", he said. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting, and the way you treat other people is awful.

"He made it worse" by calling the question racist, Bash said.
