Donald Trump gets into ugly fight with reporter

President Trump Berates Jim Acosta Tells April Ryan'Sit Down! During Heated Press ConferenceMore

The exchange marked a new low for Trump's relationship with journalists, which has largely been hostile.

US President Donald Trump clashed with journalists during a speech at The White House that addressed the results of the 2018 midterm elections.

Trump's Republican party held on to the Senate but lost control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.

Trump added that the way Acosta had treated Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was "awful". "Honestly I think that you should let me run the country". "You run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better".

Acosta then challenged Trump's use of the word "invasion" to describe the caravan and asked the president if he thought he had demonized immigrants. When an intern tried to take the mic from Acosta to let the next reporter ask a question, he continued needling the president, who finally called him a "rude, bad person". "You shouldn't be working for CNN". You are a rude, bad person.'14. "The way you treat other people is awful!" "You shouldn't treat people that way".

"History will see what a good job we did in getting people over the finish line", Trump said, noting that nine of the 11 candidates for whom he campaigned in the last week were victorious.

"They can play that game, but we can play better because we have a thing called the United States Senate, and a lot of questionable things were done between leaks of classified information and many other elements that should not have taken place", Trump said during the almost 90-minute session with reporters in the White House East Room. In subsequent tweets, he explained that Secret Service agents working at a White House access point asked him to surrender his credential - known as a "hard pass" - to enter the grounds.

AMC's upcoming Breaking Bad movie will reportedly follow Aaron Paul's Jesse Pinkman after the events of the series finale. If the news is indeed to be trusted, it leads us to wonder what sort of form a Breaking Bad movie would take.

In a statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders called Acosta's behavior "absolutely unacceptable" and said his White House press pass would be suspended "until further notice".

CNN issued a statement on Twitter in full support of its chief White House correspondent, backing up Costa's assertion that Sanders' accusation was a blatant lie.

"To say that, what you said, is so insulting to me", he said. You are a rude, bad person.

NBC correspondent Peter Alexander, who got to ask the next question, stood up for Acosta, only to receive some of Trump's ire too.

Mr Trump said: "That's enough".

Trump made several references in his news conference to how he feels mistreated by the press.

Sarcastically thanking him, Trump bluntly dismissed his comments and denied an ad campaign featuring migrants climbing a wall were "Hollywood actors".
