Trump Comments on Jim Acosta Day After Exchange, Says CNN Reporter ‘Unprofessional’

Sunday, 11 Nov, 2018

"I don't think he's a smart person but he has a loud voice", Trump told reporters in a testy 20-plus-minute exchange before he left for Paris and a World War I commemoration ceremony.

President Donald Trump obviously is not a fan of CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta. "She shouldn't be. You've got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect". He gets paid to do that ...

"Denying press passes as a method of retaliation is a violation of the First Amendment".

Asked how long Acosta's pass would be suspended, Trump replied, "As far as I'm concerned, I haven't made that decision". He started off his exchange with the president by saying that he will "challenge" Trump on his description of the migrant caravan. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump said.

At one point in the news conference, Jim Acosta of CNN refused to relinquish the microphone and badgered the President with additional questions.

Richard Tofel, the president of ProPublica, tweeted on Friday morning, "What is the plan for when Trump concocts an excuse for vetoing a reporter" from the New York Times or Washington Post?

While Sanders didn't give a comprehensive list, she did have some tough words for Acosta's own outlet. "The way you treat other people is frightful!" During the Obama years, the media acted like obedient lap dogs, but, in this administration, they have transformed into rabid attack dogs.

CNN has defended Acosta and assailed the White House for taking his credential. However, Trump derided his argument, calling him "Mr Kellyanne Conway" and insisted that Conway, who has been a critic of Trump, was only interested in publicity.

"The Canadian parliamentary press gallery opposes the arbitrary cancellation of a reporter's accreditation as an unjustifiable limit on media access to a democratically elected government and a limit on the free press", president Philippe-Vincent Foisy said in a statement.

Colbert's not the only one who feels Sanders should be fired.

"She should be forced to resign for that", Kimmel said. "Our democracy depends on the functioning of an unfettered press that is allowed to question our leaders and hold them accountable without fear of reprisal". You have to treat the White House with respect, you have to treat the presidency with respect. The way you treat Sarah Sanders is frightful. In her statement announcing Acosta's suspension, she said the White House won't tolerate "a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job".
