It also would not explain why press officers managing Wednesday's news conference asked the intern to try to wrestle the microphone away from Acosta, rather than just turning it off remotely from the board that controls the audio. Trump told him "that's enough", called the investigation a "hoax", and then told Acosta he was a "rude, awful person" who treats people "horribly". One noted presidential historian, meanwhile, called the episode a low point in White House press relations.

Reporters don't get routine access to the Prime Minister's Office, but media credentials to access Parliament Hill are managed by the National Press Gallery, not the PMO.

Earlier a visibly angry Trump had branded Acosta an "enemy of the people" on national television, after the CNN White House correspondent refused the president's orders to sit down and give up the microphone during a press conference one day after the United States midterm vote. He called the White House accusations "a lie".

The Hill reports that Hostin's remarks sparked "outcry from fellow hosts, particularly Meghan McCain, who said Hostin's view meant that the aide 'should be arrested for battery.' She added she was speaking facetiously".

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration".

On Wednesday night, Sanders accused Acosta of "placing his hands on a young woman" and said his press credentials would be suspended "until further notice". "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is disgusting". "Jim Acosta has our full support". "To be honest. You aren't the best", he said. Acosta, President Trump's favorite punching bag, got into a tense exchange about his rhetoric on immigration, specifically about the illegal alien caravan approaching the southern border.

Other Twitter users showed Sanders' video side-by-side with the original broadcast to argue the one she posted had been doctored. "We stand by our statement", Sanders told Fox News when reached for comment. At the White House, "it's a different thing", he said.

"They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American", CNN tweeted after the exchange.

Trump and his daughter Ivanka, a senior White House adviser, both retained their stakes in the property. You and I have a difference of opinion.

"Obviously I don't think anybody should have-any young woman, particularly-should have somebody swiping away at them and grabbing the microphone back", she added.

Trump also told April Ryan of the Urban National Radio Network to "sit down" and wait her turn.
