Mr Acosta is seen trying to keep hold of the microphone while Trump's aide makes three unsuccessful attempts to take it from him.

When the president tried to go to another journalist, Acosta declined to give up the microphone and asked about possible indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller based on the ongoing investigation into Trump's presidential campaign.

Acosta began by challenging Trump's assertion that a caravan of Central American migrants making its way on foot through Mexico to the U.S. border represented an "invasion".

Mr Trump replied: "I consider it an invasion".

Acosta: "Why did you characterise it as such?" "When you are holding something and you snatch this from me, this is now an extension of me and that means you've battered me, you've assaulted me".

"No, not at all".

"I want it to be a process and I want people to come in".

The point of yesterday's session was merely to antagonize Trump's. favorite bogeyman, the free press, in order to keep them galvanized and everyone else distracted in the wake of a stinging political defeat. They are not only unsafe, the are disturbingly un-American.

Acosta asked a question about the migrant caravan traveling to the United States and repeatedly challenged the president as he attempted to answer. He harkened back to his time covering the Ronald Reagan administration, saying he was aggressive at times but never acted the way Acosta did.

"Pardon me, ma'am", Acosta quickly said. CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them.

Acosta shot back at the accusation of misconduct, tweeting "this is a lie" as his network and a number of Washington journalists who had been at the press conference voiced support for him.

Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University, called the White House's response "unprecedented" in the modern era.

Sanders responded to doubts about her claim in the afternoon on November 8.

Mr Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, said he was informed by Secret Service officers that he could not enter for his scheduled 8pm broadcast. "This conduct is absolutely unacceptable", Sanders wrote Wednesday night.

"It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question", she said.

The edited version has been shared by White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.

"The question is: did the reporter make contact or not?" He regularly disrupts press conferences and uses his questions to advocate for issues he feels strongly about.

Acosta called Sanders' statement "a lie".

"I do think that they're trying to shut us down to some extent, inside the White House press corps". The White House has never threatened to revoke his access because of his style. "Other presidents did not fear tough questioning".

Acosta has served as a White House correspondent for CNN since 2013 when he covered the Obama administration.

An activist interrupted President Obama at a White House event celebrating L.G.B.T. Pride Month to demand an end to the deportation of L.G.B.T. immigrants. "We stand by our decision to revoke this individual's hard pass". "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video", she wrote.
