Jim Acosta Physically Grabs Microphone Away From Female Staffer

Donald Trump Rips Into CNN's Jim Acosta: 'You Are A Rude, Terrible Person'

President Donald Trump's press conference on the midterm elections ended up becoming an all-out fight between himself and multiple members of the White House press corps.

'I wanted to challenge you, ' Acosta started but Trump interrupted him: 'Here we go.

It got hot nearly immediately.

Acosta accused the president of attempting to frighten voters ahead of the midterms with ads depicting the migrant caravan as invaders.

But as Acosta pressed on and Alexander stood there, Trump turned back to the CNN reporter. That further infuriated the President. American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan tried to ask a question and Trump rudely shut her down.

"Just sit down, please", Trump told Acosta, who asked the president off mic about his description of the media as "the enemy of the people".

At this point, a female White House staffer is seen getting up to collect the microphone from Acosta in order to give it to another reporter.

When Acosta started to ask Trump about his comments calling a migrant group marching toward the southern U.S. border an "invasion", Trump said that's what he still considers it. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting", he said, referring to the White House press secretary. You're a very rude person.

"Honestly I think that you should let me run the country, you run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings will be much better", Trump said.

'CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them.

'The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is awful, ' he said.

"I'm not a big fan of yours either, to be honest with you", Mr. Trump told the NBC reporter.

"Mr. President, I have one other question on the Russian Federation investigation. It's so sad", Trump said.

He then took questions, and things got testy quickly as he sparred with reporters - especially CNN's Jim Acosta. You and I have a difference of opinion.
