President Donald Trump Threatens to Revoke White House Access for More Reporters

Acosta was trying to ask the president a question when Trump moved on to the next journalist and an intern tried to take away the microphone from Acosta, who continued talking.

Thursday night was a hectic night for late show hosts between the situation with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's hospitalization and the White House revoking press credentials for CNN's Jim Acosta. Acosta asked the US leader about his claim that Central American migrants walking through Mexico toward the southern USA border were "invading" the country. "You talk about somebody that's a loser, she doesn't know what the hell she's doing", Trump said. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote on Twitter that the administration would "never tolerate" such behavior from a reporter, and that it had therefore revoked Acosta's press accreditation.

"You have to treat the White House of the office of the presidency with respect".

People on social media are shedding light on the important work by black female reporters after the president called journalist April Ryan a "loser" and insulted a string of other black women this week. Acosta's pass was revoked by the administration after he refused to give up the microphone during a Wednesday press conference in which Trump called him "a rude, awful person". Speaking of Acosta, the president said: "He's a very unprofessional man..."

Nearly immediately, there has been a major backlash for Sanders to resign in the wake of sharing the video, which was created by the widely discredited alt-right site InfoWars. "Nobody manipulated it", said Trump. After Acosta finally gives the mic up, Trump chose to attack him personally.

The New York Times also noted that Acosta's monologues have led "some of his rival White House reporters" to roll their eyes. Trump followed up Friday, calling Acosta unprofessional and stated that he hadn't decided whether Acosta's suspension would be permanent, but forewarned that "it could be others" who get suspended.
