Donald Trump, CNN's Jim Acosta Argue at Press Conference

You are a rude terrible person! Trump and CNN's Acosta get into shouting match

At one particularly heated point in the conference, Mr Trump got into a tense exchange with Jim Acosta from television news channel CNN, which led to the president calling him a "terrible person".

"I'm not concerned about anything with the Russian Federation investigation because that's a hoax", Trump replied, before telling Acosta to "put down the mic".

'What you say is so insulting to me, ' he told her. And he went on to say "I think it's very bad for my country, I'll tell you. You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said.

"The caravan was not an invasion, it is a group of migrants moving up the border from Central America towards the border with the U.S.", Acosta argued.

When asked why Representative Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was not a head of any committe, retired, Trump replied: "I retired him". Trump walked away from the lectern until Acosta calmed down, then came back with a stern lecture for Acosta.

Trump wanted to move onto another reporter, but Acosta wouldn't give up the microphone when an aide sought to tug it away from him.

"Honestly I think you should let me run the country and you can run CNN", he said in the press conference at the White House.

To NBC's Peter Alexander, who defended Jim Acosta: 'Well, I'm not a big fan of yours either'.

Acosta then falsely implied that Trump tried to demonize immigrants during the election, when, in reality, Trump's campaign message when focused on illegal immigration. "You aren't the best".

In addition to his conversation with Ms Pelosi, Mr Trump called Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, Republican House speaker Paul Ryan and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, as well as other candidates he backed during the race, the White House said. "And it is so sad that you asked me, and no, you rudely interrupted him".

Trump said he "never" worries about any record of racist remarks because "I have never used racist remarks". Trump said. The president may have been referring to an October 29 Rasmussen Reports poll he tweeted last week, which showed 40 percent of African-Americans approved of his performance.

He also said, "When you report fake news, as CNN does a lot, you are an enemy of the people".

Alcindor responded to the incident on Twitter, saying that she was "simply asking the questions the public wants to know".

"That is such a racist question". The network said while Trump doesn't respect a free press, he has the constitutional responsibility to protect it.
