White House revokes CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s credentials after furious exchange with Trump
President called Acosta a ‘rude, terrible person’ after he refused to give up a microphone while trying to ask a question
The White House is revoking the credential pass of CNN reporter Jim Acosta hours after a fiery exchange at a press conference.
Acosta has long been a bitter adversary of the White House. The Hispanic American reporter works for the rolling news channel that has been a particular focus of ire for the administration. CNN has been the network most closely associated with the “fake news” slur, which the president has used consistently to undermine public confidence in the media.
