Trump invited Acosta, a frequent foil, to ask him a question at the White House news conference, which followed his party's loss of control of the House of Representatives in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation that has shadowed his administration for more than 18 months, Mr Trump said, "I could end it right now" but "I let it go on". You are not my enemy.

Meanwhile, Acosta's recording of him being refused access to the White House has been viewed more than 1m times, in a dispute that shows no sign of abating and is being played out by both sides on social media. The way you treat [White House spokesperson] Sarah Sanders is awful.

The news network said: "She provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened. This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better", CNN added.

Naturally, Trump supporters went after Acosta for his behavior and attacked NBC for how it framed the exchange online. "You are a rude, bad person", Trump added.

The White House Correspondents' Association and the Radio Television Digital News Association are among the several groups that have criticised the Trump administration's decision.

MANDEL NGAN via Getty Images CNN's Jim Acosta has become a favourite foe of Donald Trump in his rallying call against "fake news" and the "mainstream media". Officials in those countries also said the migrants committed acts of violence against police officers that left many wounded.

Mr Acosta stood back up and began mentioning, without a microphone, the explosive devices that were recently sent to CNN and some of the president's political opponents.

The reporter challenged Mr Trump on his characterisation of the South American migrant caravan as an "invasion".

"I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", he said.

She grabbed the microphone but Acosta wouldn't give it up.

"Just sit down please", he said to Acosta, who tried to ask another question. "Put down the mic". "You shouldn´t be working for CNN", he said.

'You are a very rude person, ' Trump told him. "And it is so sad that you asked me, and no, you rudely interrupted him". "Surely you don't trust InfoWars.?" he said on Twitter. "You shouldn't treat people that way". "You shouldn't treat people like that".

Mr Acosta persisted, saying: "They are hundreds of miles away".

"This conduct is beyond reprehensible", said Sean Hannity on his Fox broadcast Wednesday night.
