[WATCH] 'You are a rude, terrible person' Trump attacks CNN reporter

The White house revoked CNN Jim Acosta's press pass after a fiery exchange at Trump's post-mid-term election press conference.

President called Acosta a ‘rude, terrible person’ after he refused to give up a microphone while trying to ask a question about the caravan of immigrants moving through Mexico to the US border.

The White has accused Costa of placing his hands on a female staffer who tried to take the microphone away from him, which he says is a lie.

In a statement, CNN defended its reporter. “The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta,” said the company in a statement. “It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today’s press conference. In an explanation, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied. She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened. This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.”
