President Donald Trump berated a CNN reporter, calling him a "rude, bad person" during a heated press conference at the White House on Wednesday.

The president was asked about the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation. Trump ordered Acosta. "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, awful person", the president told Acosta.

"I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN", he added.

In the clip, Acosta asks the president about his use of the word "invasion" to describe the caravan of between 3,600 to 7,200 Central Americans that is advancing toward the US-Mexico border. Today, Acosta's "question" was about the migrant caravan current making its way through Mexico toward the USA border.

'I don't know why you'd say that, ' Trump replied, shaking his head.

After some more back and forth, Acosta noted that the caravan is still hundreds of miles away from the US.

In addition to Acosta, Trump said he wasn't a "fan" of NBC's Peter Alexander, who during the press conference defended Acosta's behavior.

"I consider it to be an invasion", Trump resplied.

California Tortilla: New Jersey and CT voters who say "I voted" can enjoy free chips and queso with any in-store purchase. For example: Potbelly Sandwich Shop initially made their free cookie offer available to those who had "I voted" stickers.

Acosta refused to relinquish his microphone, physically tangling with an aide who sought to take it away from him.

Trump's ongoing feud with CNN has seen the president skip over Acosta at press conferences, and has seen the president's supporters boo the reporter at rallies.

But they lost their majority in the House, a setback for Trump after a campaign that became a referendum on his leadership.

President Donald Trump told a black reporter at a news conference that her question about racism and white nationalism was "such a racist question". "You are not the best". Another reporter also asked if Trump was a racist because of support from white nationalists. "I think people like me", the president said. You're a very rude person.

Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh said the confrontation was "a microcosm of the media's relationship with Trump from the get-go". "And it is so sad that you asked me, and no, you rudely interrupted him. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is disgusting".

Acosta then continued to ask Trump about the Russian investigation, which the president called "a hoax".

"That is such a racist question". The freedom of the press is protected by the Constitution.
