[VIDEO] Donald Trump, CNN's Jim Acosta Argue at Press Conference

BTW. another awesome moment - Trump was asked if he'd comply with the inevitable demand by the House to release his tax returns, and the Prez essentially said it was too complicated for Congress to understand. You shouldn't be working for CNN, ' the president said to Acosta.

"I want to challenge you on one of the statements that you made in the tail end of the campaign in the midterms", Acosta told Trump at a press conference following the midterm elections.

When Alexander asked Trump if he's trying to pit Americans against each other with his rhetoric about Democrats, he retorted "what are you trying to be [Acosta]?"

Trump got defensive when discussing the controversial ad he recently ran against the caravan, explaining the people in it were "not actors".

Watch the exchange between Trump and Acosta below, then hit the comments with your reactions. "You shouldn't be working for CNN". "You rudely interrupted him". "You shouldn't treat people that way".

Acosta kept asking and the president, who held the presser to tout Republican wins in Tuesday's election, had enough and told him to sit down. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful, and the way you treat other people is terrible. "You aren't the best".

Acosta continued to ask questions, including whether Trump was "concerned" about potential indictments coming from the Mueller probe.

"When you report fake news.you are an enemy of the people", he said.

When another reporter shouted a question a few minutes later, Trump asked her to sit down.

"Very hostile. Such a hostile media. It's so sad", Trump said.

'The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful, ' he said. "That's such a racist question".
