Trump stepped away from the lectern for a a few seconds before returning to the microphone to take aim at Acosta again. Acosta joined a room of other journalists in questioning the president after the mid-term elections, and the topic of immigration came up. You are a rude bad person you shouldn't be working for CNN.

"When I'm representing the United States, I wouldn't do that", Trump added.

Acosta had challenged the president on his characterization of the migrant caravan moving through Mexico as an "invasion". Instead, Acosta continued with a second question about the Russian investigation, which Trump shrugged off with another curt answer. On her third attempt, the intern gets a hold of the microphone with her left hand. "Distract, make Jim Acosta the story and you don't have to talk about global warming, taxes for rich people", she added. Acosta said before Trump interrupted him.

Trump and Acosta have long have a contentious relationship as the CNN reporter often asks the president questions that seemed created to illicit a reaction from him.

After Acosta was denied re-entry to the White House for a live shot Wednesday evening, Sanders tweeted out the news of his hard pass suspension, saying the White House would not tolerate his "placing his hands on a young woman" and that CNN defending him was "disgusting". They are not only unsafe, the are disturbingly un-American.

As you can see in the video, a White House aide tried to grab Acosta's microphone away, but he refused to give it up.

"I do think, Anderson, that this is a test for all of us", he said.

On Wednesday, President Trump was in a foul mood and made a decision to hold an impromptu news conference that lasted almost 90 minutes.
