White House revokes CNN reporter Jim Acosta's credentials after furious exchange with Trump

Jim Acosta press conference

The White House is revoking the credential pass of CNN reporter Jim Acosta hours after a fiery exchange at a press conference.

Acosta has long been a bitter adversary of the White House. The Hispanic American reporter works for the rolling news channel that has been a particular focus of ire for the administration. CNN has been the network most closely associated with the “fake news” slur, which the president has used consistently to undermine public confidence in the media.

In a news conference on Wednesday, Acosta was trying to challenge Trump over the president’s scare-mongering about the so-called “caravan” of migrants making their way through Mexico.

When Trump tried to brush him off, Acosta refused to surrender a microphone provided by the White House, while trying to ask Trump another question. A female staffer tried to take it from him and Acosta held on. Trump went on to call the reporter “a rude, terrible person”.
