The White House suspended press access for Jim Acosta on Wednesday after the CNN reporter had a tense exchange with President Trump during a press conference. "I never thought in this country that I wouldn't be able to go and cover the president of the United States simply because I was trying to ask a question", Acosta said.

As he was heading off to Paris, Trump stopped to talk to reporters and was asked how long Acosta's pass would be revoked.

Women on "The View" argue over CNN's Jim Acosta and his interaction with a White House intern at Wednesday's news conference.

Acosta responded that Sanders' description of events was "a lie". "As a federal official, Sanders is immune from defamation claims that arise from her professional duties under the Federal Tort Claims Act", a 1940s law that Congress amended in 1988 to shield federal officials. But analysts and other journalists pointed out that the video appeared to have been manipulated, sped up to make it look as if Acosta was striking the woman. Mr. Acosta stated his opinion that the caravan wasn't an "invasion", as Mr. Trump has asserted, instead of asking a question. "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior", she also wrote on Twitter.

Reacting to the incident, CNN lambasted the ban as retaliation and accused Sanders of lying. In a statement, the network labeled the decision to suspend Acosta's accreditation as "a threat to our democracy".

New York, November 8, 2018-The Committee to Protect Journalists today called on the White House to restore the credentials of Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent.

Asked about the cost of the operation, Manning said it had yet to be determined by the Pentagon's financial services. Joseph Dunford told an audience at Duke University during a speaking engagement Monday.

"I came in here as a nice person wanting to answer questions, and I had people jumping out of their seats screaming questions at me", Trump said.

After a few moments of verbal sparring, Trump angrily declared "that's enough" as a White House aide moved to take the microphone away from Acosta.

That statement was contradicted by witnesses and video that showed an intern trying to grab a mic from his hand as he pulled it away from her, saying, "Pardon me, ma'am".

"I'll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them". You shouldn't be working for CNN. "You are a rude, bad person", Trump added.

"I'm not a big fan of yours, either", Trump replied. You are not the best.
