Move comes after clash at news conference where President Trump called reporter a ‘rude, terrible person’
President Trump sparred with CNN reporter Jim Acosta at a news conference after Tuesday's midterm elections.
The White House has suspended CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s press credential after he and President Trump clashed again during a postelection news conference.
In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Mr. Acosta’s hard pass, which allows journalists to enter White House grounds, was being suspended because he “placed his hands” on a White House intern who was trying to take the microphone from him after Mr. Trump indicated he was no longer going to address him.
