White House suspends press credentials of senior CNN journalist after spat with Trump

In an unprecedented move, the White House has suspended the credentials of a senior CNN journalist for his disgusting and outrageous behaviour, hours after he had a testy exchange with President Donald Trump during a marathon news conference. The move came just hours after CNN s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta drew the ire of Trump by persisting with questions about his views on a caravan of Central American migrants making its way to the US border and refused the president s orders to sit down, and clung to the microphone. The removal of Acosta s pass is a sharp escalation of tensions between the Trump administration and the media. At the news conference, which lasted 1 hour and 26 minutes, Trump snapped at the press corps, called reporters rude for asking questions, and made baseless claims about political polling. Acosta was one of the first reporters Trump called on. Thank you, Mr President, he said. I want to challenge you on one of the statements that you made .
