Trump rails against 'rude' media in heated press conference

Trump Press Conference Acosta Rude

Mr Trump insulted several reporters by name, interrupted their questions, ordered some to sit down and deemed one inquiry "racist" at the conference held a day after the U.S. midterm elections where the president's Republican Party retained control of the Senate but lost its majority in the House of Representatives.

Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, asked Mr Trump about his reference to migrants travelling towards America as an "invasion".

President Trump to Jim @Acosta: "You should let me run the country".

At one point during the exchange, Trump said, "That's enough", and a female White House aide tried to take Acosta's mic. Acosta held onto the microphone, pulled it back, and continued with his question, saying, "Pardon me, ma'am", to the aide.

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blamed the suspension of privileges on Acosta placing his hands on a young woman.

A visibly annoyed President Trump responded: "Because I consider it an invasion".

In the 2013 semifinals, he bounced back from a set down to beat the Swiss, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. And what more can I ask for? "And I saw that my level is there".

He added: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people". But to say that, what you say is so insulting to me. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question.

Acosta then badgered the president, asking, "Did you demonize immigrants?"

Following the testy confrontations, CNN tweeted that Trump's "ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far".

Remember, the only reason Trump goes after them time and again is because HE DOESN'T WANT THE PEOPLE TO SEE OR HEAR WHAT HE'S UP TO!

'I would never do that, and I don't use racist remarks, ' the president said generally during a wide-ranging press conference a day after historic midterm congressional elections.

Samsung Set to Reveal Actual Foldable Phone Details Tomorrow
For now the phone is available for pre-order as a developer edition and costs $1,318 for 128 GB of storage, and $1,469 for 256 GB. Yes, it feels a bit gimmicky , but the FlexPai does actually deliver on its promise of being the "first foldable smartphone".

"On the other hand you had some that chose to let's stay away, let's stay away", Mr. Trump said.

"Well, I'm not a big fan of yours either", Trump said, as some people in the audience laughed.

"CNN should be ashamed of themselves [for] having you work for them". Trump tore into the journalist after he refused to sit down.

Mr Trump also delivered a stark warning to the Democratic Party following yesterday's midterm elections: Investigate me, and I'll investigate you - and the Government will grind to a halt.

The reporter was Yamiche Alcindor of PBS Newshour, an African American reporter.

Trump took the rare step of mocking Republican candidates who kept their distance from him during the campaign because of concerns that his divisive messages on immigration would turn off voters - but lost anyway. 'It's a very bad thing that you said'.
