A Secret Service agent denied CNN’s Jim Acosta entry to the White House grounds on Wednesday evening, and revoked his ‘hard pass.’

http://revueplanches.com/produit/numero-09/?add-to-cart=3450 Jim Acosta, the now former chief White House correspondent for CNN got into a heated back and forth verbal exchange at the White House press conference on Wednesday, one day after the midterm elections.

The incident resulted in the president telling the reporter to ‘sit down’ and aides wrestling with the reporter to try and get the mic out of his hands.

Trump told Acosta, “You are a rude, terrible person. ‘CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them. You are a rude terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN.’

The incident was confirmed after Acosta tweeted that the Secret Service barred him from entering White House grounds to shoot his 8 p.m. news broadcast.

A video posted by Acosta on Twitter also shows that his credentials were confiscated.

The White House said in a statement that the reason Acosta was banned from the grounds is because he placed “his hands on” a White House intern during the press conference in the East Wing earlier in the day.

“President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said in the statement. “We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.”

Jim Acosta is a journalist who is the chief White House correspondent for CNN. Previously, Acosta served as the national political correspondent for CNN.

President Trump Press Conferences:

Prior to the most recent incident there have been other conflicts involving Jim Acosta:

May 2016 – At a nationally televised news conference in May 2016, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called Acosta “a real beauty” for his reporting. Interrupting Acosta, who asked Trump about his ability to deal with scrutiny, Trump said: “Excuse me, excuse me, I’ve watched you on TV. You’re a real beauty.”

January 2017 – During President-elect Trump’s first press conference on January 11, 2017, Acosta attempted to ask a question to the President-elect regarding Russia. Trump, however, instead called on other reporters, denouncing Acosta and CNN as “fake news”.

On August 2, 2017, Acosta got into a heated debate at The White House’s press conferences with White House senior policy advisor Stephen Miller over the Trump Administration’s support for the RAISE Act.

Acosta speaks about his experiences at Trump press conferences and rallies at San Jose State University in October 2018.

On August 2, 2018, shortly after Kaitlan Collins was banned from the official press conference by the White House and a statement of President Trump that “FAKE NEWS media… is the enemy of the American People”, Acosta asked the press secretary of the White House Sarah Huckabee Sanders if she distances herself from that statement. She did not decline nor support that statement and argued over her own treatment by the media. Acosta was praised by many liberals and panned by many conservatives. This came in a wider context of critics by multiple entities (critic came by the United Nations and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, IACHR) for attacks by President Trump on the free press.
