Where Acosta challenged the President for calling the migrant caravan heading for the US border an invasion.>> That's not an invasion.
>> Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN.>> All right.>> And if you did it well your ratings would be much better.>> If I may, Mr. President, if I may I ask one other question->> Peter, go ahead.>> Are you worried-
>> That's enough, that's enough.>> Mr. President, I->> That's enough.>> I was gonna ask one other, the other folks asked->> That's enough.>> Pardon me, ma'am.>> Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, the White House Press Secretary, tweeted afterward that the White House had suspended Acosta's pass until further notice.
She added, we will never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job. The White House alleges Acosta touched a White House intern as she attempted to take the microphone. Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason was at the same conference.>> The tension in the room during the press conference between President Trump and reporters.
And that tension only increased during the back and forth with Jim Acosta. The White House Correspondents Association, which speaks for the press corp, released a statement late on Wednesday. Saying that that move was unacceptable and encouraging people to look closely at the video to see what actually happened.
>> The microphone eventually made its way to NBC's Peter Alexander.>> Go ahead, Peter, go.>> In Jim's defense, I've traveled with him and watched him, he's a diligent reporter who busts his butt.>> Well, I'm not a big fan of yours either so.>> I understand.>> To be honest with you.
