Sunny Hostin accuses White House aide of battery against Jim Acosta

John Legend slams Trump during President's wild press conference

The sparring started after Acosta asked Trump about the caravan of migrants heading from Latin America to the southern US border. "But they have to come in legally", Trump said.

"They are not only risky, they are disturbingly un-American", CNN tweeted after the exchange. "That's not an invasion". "CNN should be ashamed of itself, having you working for them".

But that's - that's a really - I think something that people are looking at and are very concerned that there are white nationalists walking around in the White House, as the president says that just asking about them is racist. "You should not be working for CNN".

Acosta sparred with Trump about the caravan of migrants heading from Latin America to the southern USA border. It also remains to be seen whether White House reporters will walk out, or show solidarity with Acosta and CNN in other ways.

Sigh: Team Trump just had to hit back too hard at CNN's Jim Acosta.

Acosta often peppers his questions and reporting with editorial commentary and gets into verbal spats with President Donald Trump and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

In a statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders called Acosta's behavior "absolutely unacceptable" and said his White House press pass would be suspended "until further notice".

Hostin, a lawyer, pointed out that, technically, if an assault took place, it would have been when the intern tried to grab the mic from Acosta, since the microphone is an extension of him.

"It's such a hostile media", Trump said after ordering reporter April Ryan of the American Urban Radio Networks to sit down when she tried to ask him a question.

President Trump speaks during a news conference in the East Room of the White House on Wednesday.

Additionally, Trump never attacked freedom of the press. It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today's press conference.

The White House sought to brush aside suggestions it is stifling a free press.

"I've just been denied access to the WH".

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, senior White House communications advisor Mercedes Schlapp insisted that the intern was "shaken up" and "intimidated" by Acosta and added "what we are seeing is bad behavior that can not be tolerated".

However, Mr Acosta refused to give it up as he attempted to ask the president a further question. "As long as @realdonaldtrump is our President, I'm not taking a day off. Other presidents did not fear tough questioning".

"Journalists may use a range of approaches to carry out their jobs and the WHCA does not police the tone or frequency of the questions its members ask of powerful senior government officials, including the President", WHCA president Olivier Knox said.

"It's unfortunate the White House is saying this", he said.
