White House suspends CNN's Jim Acosta

White House suspends CNN's Jim Acosta

Acosta had been questioning Trump about his claim that a caravan of migrants posed a threat to the US when the president turned on the journalist.

Acosta tweeted Wednesday night that he was denied entrance onto the White House grounds by the Secret Service.

An aide attempted to grab the microphone from Acosta, who nevertheless tried to shout out one last question.

"Just sit down, please", Trump responded, as the two talked over each other.

"That is a racist question", Trump fired back at Yamiche Alcindor, a White House correspondent for PBS NewHour in Washington today.

"They are not only unsafe, they are disturbingly un-American", CNN said.

Tuesday's USA midterm election resulted in Trump's Republicans strengthening their grip on the Senate.

"That's such a racist question ..."
