  • [VIDEO] Donald Trump, CNN's Jim Acosta Argue at Press Conference

As a result, the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said in a statement: "President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration".

Acosta tweeted Wednesday night that he was denied entrance onto the White House grounds by the Secret Service.

A White House intern eventually grabbed the microphone away from Acosta. The way you treat Sarah Sanders is disgusting.

The president complained that the media did not cover the humming economy and was responsible for much of the country's divided politics.

"I would never do that and I don't use racist remarks", Trump told reporters in the East Room, adding that if he did, "You would've known about it". At that point, Acosta stood back up and began mentioning, without a microphone, the explosive devices that were recently sent to CNN and some of the president's political opponents. The way you treat other people is awful.

"Just sit down", Trump said. "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you're the enemy of the people".

CNN denounced Trump's comments on Acosta as "disturbingly un-American" in a statement posted to Twitter.

Iran president warns of ‘war situation’ as sanctions resume
He said that two of the countries will be bringing their Iran oil imports to zero, but just needed some more time to wind down. The Trump administration's decision to restore sanctions "is the sea change the Middle East has been waiting for", he said.

"They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American", CNN said.

The question came from PBS Newshour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor during Trump's news conference Wednesday, where he claimed victory in the midterm 2018 elections, which saw the Republican party lose the House of Representatives.

They began sparring after Acosta asked Trump about the caravan of migrants heading from Latin America to the southern U.S. border. "Such a racist question". You have nationalists. You have globalists.

Alcindor asked Trump whether his recent embrace of the label "nationalist" emboldened white nationalists across the country.

"To say that as you said that to me is so insulting. To be honest. You aren't the best", he said.

Waving his finger, Trump berated him.
