Stirewalt: Jim Acosta Having WH Pass Revoked 'Great News for Him' and For Trump

Trump clashes with CNN reporter | World | thenews.com.pk |

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.

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

CNN addressed the decision Wednesday, calling it an "unprecedented decision" based on "lies".

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

Some of Donald Trump's supporters have applauded the decision to revoke Acosta's pass, saying he had "manhandled" the White House staffer.

At the same time, Trump is able to continue his claims of the press being the "enemy" of the populace with the scathing statement from Sanders.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his administration".

And James asked how the media can deal with a President that will lie to them. He asked Trump why he has characterised it as an invasion.

'I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN, ' he snapped.

When Acosta tried to ask a further question about the Russian Federation investigation, Trump said "that's enough".

'CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them.

'You are a very rude person, ' Trump told him. "History will not be kind to you", CNN Matt's Dornic, vice president of communications and digital partnerships, wrote on Twitter Thursday. The way you treat [White House press secretary] Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] and other people is terrible. "You shouldn't treat people that way".

Mr Alexander came to his colleague's defence. "He's a diligent reporter who busts his butt like the rest of us".

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.

Elsewhere in the conference, PBS NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor asked the President about white nationalists emboldened by his remarks labeling himself a "nationalist".

Trump repeatedly said "That's enough". "You should not be working for CNN".

CNN's Jim Acosta and President Donald Trump got into a heated exchange that left some conservatives and media figures at each other's throats.

"We stand by our decision to revoke this individual's hard pass".

Following a lengthy back-and-forth, a White House intern tried to take the microphone from Acosta, who held onto it. "Pardon me, ma'am", Acosta said in the original video, though the audio was stripped from the edited version. The White House ought to be more careful, and the administration certainly shouldn't banish reporters for being critical.

During the news conference, Trump also turned on reporter Yamiche Alcindor of PBS' "NewsHour". You have nationalists. You have globalists.
