President Trump calls CNN's Jim Acosta 'rude, bad person' at press conference

President Trump clashed dramatically at Wednesday's press conference with CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta, after the CNN star peppered Trump with questions and refused to give up the microphone as he asked about the migrant caravan and Russian Federation investigation. He then refused to give up the microphone.

"I will tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them-you are a rude, awful person, you shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump said. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is terrible", he said, referring to the White House press secretary. "You rudely interrupted him". "You shouldn't treat people that way".

He also shushed April Ryan, a prominent black reporter for American Urban Radio Networks, who stood up without being called on and challenged Mr. Trump to explain his rhetorical tone.

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

Sanders could be seen laughing at the president's verbal sparring with the press. But the press confrontation Wednesday was the hottest.

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.

Watts claimed Shanann had killed one daughter and was actively trying to kill the other when he attacked her in an act of passion. He could be heard sniffing and trembled each time he said "guilty" in response to each charge read against him by the judge.

"Okay, just sit down, please", Trump said.

"I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", he said. "They weren't actors. They didn't come from Hollywood".

Acosta accused the president of attempting to frighten voters ahead of the midterms with ads depicting the migrant caravan as invaders. "I'm not a big fan of yours either, to be honest", the President said. "And if you did it well your ratings would be much better".

Acosta then attempted to ask a follow-up question, only to be told by the president, "That's enough".

"In Jim's defense, I've traveled with him and watched him, he's a diligent reporter", Alexander said.
