White House revokes the press pass of CNN

The White House has suspended the press pass of CNN’s chief correspondent, Jim Acosta who had a verbal exchange with President Donald Trump at a news conference during which the president branded him the “enemy of the people.”

 

A very angry Trump called Jim Acosta a “rude, terrible person,” after the CNN White House correspondent refused the president’s orders to sit down and drop the microphone during the conference one day after the US midterm election.

 

“The White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice,” said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders hours later, referring to Acosta, who then tweeted that he had been denied White House entry.
