"What you said is so insulting to me", he said.
The president and the reporter sparred at a press briefing Wednesday, culminating with a White House intern trying to pull the microphone away from Mr Acosta.
The White House sought to brush aside suggestions it is stifling a free press.
At the earlier news conference Mr Trump, when asked by Mr Acosta if he had "demonised immigrants" during the midterms campaign, replied: "No, I want them to come into the country".
"We did this in spite of a very dramatic fundraising disadvantage driven by Democrats' wealthy donors, and special interests, and a very hostile media coverage, to put it lightly", he said. "I mean, I think she could have won that race, but she didn't want to have any embrace". "You released a doctored video - actual fake news".
The president expressed hope that he and his fellow Republicans in Congress could work on legislation across party lines.
"There's 800,000 people that will be affected, and he couldn't deliver the news himself?" the journalist said.
The White House has twice defended the video, but did not address claims that it got the video from InfoWars. "You better go arrest her for battery".
No, something more is called for: CNN should sue the Trump White House on First Amendment grounds, and press-rights groups, along with other media organizations, should join in to create a united and powerful front. "Should they worry about what is going to happen to them, sir?".
Trump also accused Acosta of treating Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a way that was "awful".
"I understand", Mr Alexander said, attempting to ask a question.
Whether or not that's true, Sanders' description of Acosta's actions was inaccurate, and thus a false accusation.
"And it's shifting the spotlight to what Acosta did to whether the Trump team overreacted", he added.
"Even if President Trump doesn't intend it, some see him as directly appealing to the racists", she wrote.
But some journalists are anxious about the way he has inserted himself into the story and that his confrontational style may just be feeding Trump's accusations that the media is unfair. We won't back down. "'What role did you play?'"
Trump appeared ready to walk out as Acosta clung to the microphone and persisted with questions about the president's views on a caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the USA border.
Trump has skipped the traditional presidential appearance at the White House Correspondents Association dinner the past two years, and media organisations have been hard-pressed to respond to the attacks. "And if you did it well, your ratings would be much better".
In a statement issued Wednesday evening, CNN concurred, saying: "The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta".
"CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Trump said to Acosta. "You are are a rude, awful person. You run CNN", Trump fired back.
"Contrary to CNN's assertions there is no greater demonstration of the President's support for a free press than the event he held today", Sanders tweeted.
