White House suspends credentials for CNN journalist

STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 8, ARTSAKHPRESS: A White House staffer tried to grab the microphone from CNN's Jim Acosta at the press conference on Wednesday.


But press secretary Sarah Sanders said access was removed because the reporter put "his hands on a young woman".

The president said the CNN journalist was a "rude, terrible person" at the press event, BBC News reports.

Mr Acosta challenged Mr Trump's recent assertions about a migrant caravan heading to the US from Central America.

A female staff member then attempted to take the microphone from the journalist.
 
"That's enough, that's enough," the president said to Mr Acosta, before telling him to sit down and to put down his microphone."CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you work for them," he said. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is horrible.''
