In full: CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Donald Trump clash at White House | ITV News

The White House has suspended the press pass of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta after he and President Donald Trump had a heated confrontation during a news conference.

During the exchange, a White House aide tried to take the microphone from Mr Acosta but he held on to it, with the reporter appearing to brush her arm as she did so.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement accusing Mr Acosta of “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern,” calling it “absolutely unacceptable”.
