Donald Trump Slams CNN Reporter: ‘You Are A Rude, Terrible Person!’

[VIDEO] Donald Trump, CNN's Jim Acosta Argue at Press Conference

The confrontation between US President Donald Trump and CNN correspondent Jim Acosta has escalated with the journalist being banned from the White House.

A visibly angry President Donald Trump branded CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta a "rude, bad person" and an "enemy of the people" in a testy exchange on national television Wednesday the day after America's midterm elections.

Donald Trump laid into CNN's Jim Acosta at his first post-midterm press conference on Wednesday, with him telling the reporter he was unfit for his job.

During the pair's heated exchange, Acosta asked Trump about the caravan of Central American migrants who are making their way toward the US border and challenged him about whether the caravan really was an "invasion", as Trump had previously stated.

Alcindor's original question was about Trump's rhetoric on the campaign trail. "But they have to come in legally". "Honestly, I know you have it written down and you're going to tell me 'What do you think?' That is a racist question", he continued. But to say that, what you say is so insulting to me.

Casting his ballot in Chicago, James Gerlock, 27, a Republican, said he wanted to see continued economic growth under Mr Trump. Still, he told reporters before boarding Air Force One that "tremendous crowds" were already awaiting him in both states.

When Acosta pressed on with another question, Trump said "that's enough!" and a White House aide unsuccessfully tried to grab the microphone from Acosta. "Even if President Trump doesn't intend it, some see him as directly appealing to the racists", she wrote.

"CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you work for them", he said. The way that you treat other people is disgusting. "You shouldn't be working for CNN". Acosta questioned Trump calling the migrants march an invasion and Trump defended the term.

"I'm not a big fan of yours, either", Trump replied. "It's a very awful thing that you said".

Looking back at Acosta, who, again, rose up in his own defence, Trump added: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".
