CBS News: President Donald Trump’s full press conference after Midterm Elections results.

Donald Trump and Jim Acosta got into a one-on-one during the Wednesday morning press conference following the midterm elections. Acosta began with a question about the migrant caravan approaching the US, First Acosta lectured Trump, saying the migrants were hundreds and hundreds of miles away, adding, “that’s not an invasion.” Acosta asked if he thought he had “demonized” migrants by calling the group an “invasion”. Trump replied that he and Acosta disagreed about the security of the border, and that the group needed to enter legally. Trump added that we (the United States) needs immigrants because there are hundreds of companies moving in to do business in the United States. Trump re-iterated there needs to be a legal process. Acosta also brought up an ad that showed people climbing a wall and repeated that the migrants are hundreds of miles away. The US president ordered the journalist to put down his microphone and “just sit down”. A female White House aide attempted to take the mic from Acosta, and for a few seconds they both struggled to maintain control of the microphone. Trump said CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them.

Here is CNN’s reply (text) and Acosta’s debriefing (video) of his experience in the press conference with Wolf Blitzer and Jake Trapper.

This President’s ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far. They are not only dangerous, they are disturbingly un-American. While President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it. A free press is vital to democracy, and we stand behind Jim Acosta and his fellow journalists everywhere.

— CNN Communications Department

The video below from CNN captures the encounter after Acosta’s first migrant-related question when the White House aide was attempting to regain control of the microphone that Acosta was holding. Trump was attempting to limit all journalists to one or two questions, and the video shows Acosta attempting to continue asking questions after his lengthy opinion he expressed regarding the migrant groups heading north to the United States.

CNN’s Jim Acosta responded to an exchange with President Trump during a press conference, in which Trump called reporters “the enemy of the people.”

Trump finished with Acosta, telling him, “you are a rude, terrible person; you shouldn’t be working for CNN.” Instead of questions about political issues, many of the journalists’ questions were of a personal nature, such as wondering why Trump likes Oprah so much, or whether he used the N-word, or asking “why are you pitting Americans against each other”.
