Sarah Huckabee Sanders shares doctored InfoWars video of Jim Acosta incident

At that point, a White House intern shuffled over to Acosta and tried to take the microphone from him, three times. White House correspondent Jim Acosta was stripped of his credentials following an incident during a press conference with President Trump.

CNN correspondent Jim Acosta was denied entry to the White House on Wednesday evening following a heated row with President Donald Trump, who called him a "rude, awful person" during a press conference. "I'm sick of him being the story, I'm sick of talking about Jim Acosta", she said.

During the press conference, Acosta aggressively questioned Trump; when Trump tried to move on to other reporters, Acosta continued to ask questions, and both men interrupted each other repeatedly.

When Cummings and other Democrats asked past year for records detailing Trump's separation from his businesses, they received an eight-page glossy pamphlet and a single email.

Acosta, who has a history of heated exchanges with President Trump, also spoke to midterm messaging, asking a question about immigration. Sanders said on Twitter that the White House would "never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern", though no video evidence has so far supported that claim. "This conduct is absolutely unacceptable", she wrote.

Trump on Syria strikes: 'Mission Accomplished!' But few seemed to connect that physically threatening Tucker Carlson was a far greater assault on our freedom of press than Jim Acosta losing his White House credentials.

Acosta, the chief White House correspondent for CNN, says he was stopped by the Secret Service when he tried to re-enter the White House.

"If the White House Press Corps doesn't do anything about the Acosta situation right now, if they don't boycott or take a stand, we are on the road to full authoritarianism", actor Kumail Nanjiani said, apparently with total sincerity.

And CNN has slammed the White House for its actions.

Acosta repeatedly presses Sanders in her rare briefings to clarify quotes and policy from the president.

When asked if he had "demonised immigrants" during the midterms campaign, Trump replied: "No, I want them to come into the country. But they have to come in legally".

Talk then turned to the aide herself, with Behar saying she shouldn't have touched Acosta. "That is not an invasion". "You run CNN and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better".

In the wake of the incident, CNN also stood with Acosta as did many of Acosta's peers in the press.
