White House suspends CNN's Jim Acosta

The White House is suspending the credentials of a CNN journalist hours after a testy exchange with US President Donald Trump.

McCain had more of a problem with Acosta being involved at all.

While there may be some gray area on the amount of force Acosta used, there is no doubt that his behavior toward the intern was rude.

Wallace appeared on Fox News host Dana Perino's afternoon program where he called Acosta's approach more of an argument than a question. You and I have a difference of opinion.

Trump leaned into the microphone and said, "Here we go"? seemingly relishing the confrontation.

"Jim Acosta is always the story", she said. "Because we have hundreds of companies moving in".

Thank you for signing up.

Acosta: "Why did you characterise it as such?" Trump has called the move an "invasion", although the group is nowhere near the USA border. "When you are holding something and you snatch this from me, this is now an extension of me and that means you've battered me, you've assaulted me".

"But do you think that you demonised immigrants?"

It all started when CNN's Acosta got into a heated debate with Trump after he asked the president about the migrant caravan.

"If that takes a walkout, a boycott or turning off the cameras when the president is at the podium, they should do it", Aaron said. "They are not only risky, they are disturbingly un-American".

Acosta called out the misleading ad released by the Republican Party and said: "They're hundreds of miles away, though. That's not an invasion".

"CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you work for them", he said. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said. "That's enough. Put down the mic", Trump said.

Sigh: Team Trump just had to hit back too hard at CNN's Jim Acosta.

The president then moved to address the next questioner, NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander, who defended Acosta.

Sanders said Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his administration. At one point, the intern reached under Acosta's left arm to try to grab the microphone, and he appeared to gently block her with his arm.

"So you're blaming the woman in this situation?" asked Abby, as McCain also countered by sarcastically saying, "So it's the woman's fault for doing her job".

The response to Sanders, who constantly echoes the president's "fake news" claims, apparently using an inaccurate video to ban a member of the press led to her tweet being heavily criticized.

Additionally, Trump never attacked freedom of the press.

What happened at the earlier press conference?

He was later turned away at the White House press centre by secret service officers. "I do think they are trying to shut us down, to some extent, inside the White House press corps".

But while Acosta is seen by some journalists as a bit of a grandstander who was unusually argumentative with the president in this case, there was broad outrage across ideological lines over Sanders justifying his punishment with a doctored video - apparently taken from a far-right-wing website - claiming to show Acosta getting physical with the intern.

The White House Correspondents' Association is denouncing the decision to bar Acosta, calling it unacceptable and disproportionate to the purported offence.

"We stand by our decision to revoke this individual's hard pass".
