The US Secret Service just asked for my credential to enter the WH.

A White House staff member reaches for the microphone held by CNN's Jim Acosta as he questions US President Donald Trump during a news conference following Tuesday's midterm US congressional elections at the White House in Washington, US, November 7, 2018. To Jim Acosta, as he tried to explain the migrant caravan to the president: 'Thank you for telling me that, I appreciate it.'11. "This conduct is absolutely unacceptable", she said. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question.

It means the Trump presidency - which already had no free rein despite a Republican-led chamber - will face a significant challenge, setting the tone over the remaining two years.

The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it's an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this administration.

Acosta repeatedly presses Sanders in her rare briefings to clarify quotes and policy from the president. You are not my enemy.

"Secretary Sanders lied", CNN said in a statement, saying the press pass suspension was "done in retaliation for challenging questions".

Press secretary Sarah Sanders says a reporter's access was suspended because he put "his hands on a young woman".

"(Sanders) provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened.

"This is great news for Jim Acosta", Stirewalt said.

Acosta continued to ask questions, including whether Trump was "concerned" about potential indictments coming from the Mueller probe.

As US President Donald Trump answered questions from the press following his speech about Wednesday's midterm results, his turbulent relationship with some media outlets was evident. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump said.

'I consider it an invasion. "I like real news, not fake news", he said. "Okay, that's enough", the president told Acosta after a brief exchange regarding the caravan. "I mean, I think she could have won that race, but she didn't want to have any embrace". "You should not be working for CNN".

When Sturridge's right-footed shot on the turn deflected for a corner, the tide turned as the hosts turned the screw. They could still win club football's biggest prize. "We were not surprised by Red Star's tactics".

But they lost their majority in the House, a setback for Trump after a campaign that became a referendum on his leadership. "Put down the mic".

"God plays a very big role in my life", Trump said.

President Trump defended the ad, saying: "That's true".

"The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful".

"It was quite a chaotic and extraordinary news conference and when you cut away all the other stuff, there was a clear message coming from the president. You shouldn't treat people like that".

Acosta still refused to quit badgering, prompting Trump to say: "Just sit down please".

"They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American".

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

He said that until the revocation, Sessions' departure was likely to be the topic of Acosta's and others' reporting this evening.

"I've never seen anything like it", Wallace said.

Aymann Ismail, a Twitter user, published a side-by-side comparison of clips from different sources, which suggested varying the speed of the video had created the illusion that Acosta moved his arm more rapidly and aggressively against the intern than when played in real time.
