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.

The question came from PBSNewshour 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.

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.
Iran has said it will defy the reimposition of sanctions , which target the country's oil exports and financial transactions. China, which has been Trump's main sparring partner on the trade front, is Iran's main oil customer.
It's also not clear if the early vote in key states is showing up to support Trump and Republicans or Democrats. If you can't reach the voting area because of barriers or other reasons, you can opt for curbside voting.
