‘SIT DOWN’: Trump brands CNN reporter a ‘rude, terrible person’ at press confab
Fired-up Donald Trump became embroiled in a confrontational exchange with White House reporters Wednesday labelling one a “rude, terrible person” in a “fake news” blast. Tempers flared when the President refused to answer questions from CNN reporter Jim Acosta (inset) about the migrants heading for the US border and Russian meddling in the US election. “That’s enough,” Trump said repeatedly as Acosta continued to try and ask his questions. When a White House aide bizarrely attempted to snatch the microphone from him, Acosta quickly yanked it back. “I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them,” the President said, shaking a finger at Acosta. “You are a rude, terrible person.” The White House on Wednesday evening suspended the press pass of the reporter following the heated row with the president.
