CNN reporter loses White House access

President Trump speaks during a news conference in the East Room of the White House on Wednesday. More

He then berated Acosta for the way he questioned White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in briefings.

The White House on Wednesday suspended the press pass of a CNN reporter who sparred with Donald Trump at a news conference, during which the president branded him the "enemy of the people".

Just the same, media members and liberals tried to defend Acosta.

In a tweet Mr Acosta says he was stopped by the Secret Service when he tried to re-enter the White House on Wednesday evening.

The source of the video used by Sanders appeared to be Infowars, and there were claims online that the clip had been manipulated in order to make his actions seem more dramatic.

At that point, a White House intern tried to physically take the microphone from Acosta, who wrestled them for it. 'Excuse me ma'am, ' he said to her.

NBC News reporter Peter Alexander attempted to defend Acosta when he got the mic, leading Trump to call him "fake news".

Earlier in the day Trump called Acosta "a rude, bad person" as he tried to ask the president a question. Despite multiple attempts to pry the microphone away from Acosta, he held on.

"[Trump] came out right after his inauguration and said his inauguration crowds were bigger than President Obama's, when they weren't", Acosta previously said in a CNN segment. "You're a very rude person, the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting, and the way you treat other people are frightful, you shouldn't treat people that way". "Here we go", Trump said to Acosta.

Around the same time, Acosta was stopped at the White House's Pennsylvania Avenue gate where reporters usually enter.

'CNN should be ashamed of themselves having you working for them. "Secret Service just informed me I can not enter the grounds for my 8 pm hit", Acosta tweeted Wednesday evening.

The White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) released a statement Wednesday saying it "strongly objects to the Trump Administration's decision to use US Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship".

Trump accused a PBS reporter of posing a racist question when she asked him about white nationalists.

"That's enough. That's enough", Trump said. "Jim Acosta has our full support".

As more clashes with reporters followed, Trump, exasperated but energised, summed up what is sure to be repeated at the rallies where chants of "CNN sucks!" have become a favorite chorus.

"I'll tell you what".
