Trump slams CNN's Jim Acosta in explosive press briefing

She said: "As a result of today's incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice".

Sanders has not confirmed the source of the video she tweeted.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday clashed with CNN´s White House correspondent Jim Acosta, branding him a "rude, bad person" in a testy exchange.

Acosta pressed him on why he called the migrant caravan making its way from Central America to the US border an invasion.

As the tensions flared, Trump, who called the Russian Federation probe a "witch hunt", repeatedly demanded that Acosta "put down the mic" to allow another reporter to ask a question.

Acosta continued to try to talk as the intern was seen trying to take the microphone from his hand.

They said: "In an explanation, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied". "She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened", CNN said.

Defending Acosta, the CNN said the Trump administration's decision was "a threat to democracy".

"This is a lie", Acosta tweeted in response to her statement.

"You know what? I think you should", Trump started to say, pointing at Acosta.

As the reporter moved on to the Russian Federation investigation, the President seemd frustrated, ordering the Mr Acosta to stop.

"CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you work for them", he said. "You are a rude, bad person".

'When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people, ' he told him. And when people watch Acosta go on these unhinged battles against the president or Sarah Sanders, their distrust in the media deepens. The way you treat other people is awful.

"I'm not a big fan of yours, either", Trump replied. The next questioner, NBC reporter Peter Alexander, defended his CNN colleague as a diligent reporter.

Even Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller, a website that harshly criticizes CNN, stood up for Acosta. Trump ramped up his anti-immigrant rhetoric against the caravan in the final days of the midterm elections.

"They're actually not, because part of me will say this to everybody, I don't know how long I could be a nice person if I got my face yelled at constantly that I was fake and a liar and a awful person", Goldberg countered.
