White House Revokes Press Pass Of CNN's Jim Acosta

The White House announced late Wednesday that it is temporarily suspending press credentials from CNN's Jim Acosta.

The announcement came in a statement by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. It followed an unusually contentious press conference held by President Trump in the East Room of the White House in which the president called Acosta "a rude, terrible person."

Acosta had challenged the president on his characterization of the migrant caravan moving through Mexico as an "invasion."

After a few moments of verbal sparring, Trump angrily declared "that's enough" as a White House aide moved to take the microphone away from Acosta. The CNN reporter refused to relinquish the mike, brushing the woman away and tried to ask another question. Trump moved away from his podium and then pointed his finger at Acosta and said, "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them."

2. No, the US should be ashamed of having a president like him.

No, the US should be ashamed of having a president like him.

Those who can still think are ashamed of it.
