Trump Rips 'Racist Question' Asking About 'Nationalists'

UPDATE, with video CNN punched back, as President Donald Trump would say, at POTUS's attack on the cable news network's correspondent Jim Acosta at this morning's White House presser.

The President was speaking with reporters at the White House just hours after Americans headed to the polls in the high-stakes 2018 midterm elections when Acosta asked Trump to comment on the Democrats plot to renew their ongoing Russian Federation probe. He went on to call Acosta a "rude, bad person", who CNN should be "ashamed of".

"I think that's unfair-" Acosta started to reply, before Trump cut him off again.

NBC's Peter Alexander defended Acosta, saying he is a diligent reporter, but Trump told Alexander he wasn't a fan of his, either. The way you treat [White House press secretary] Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is terrible. You and I have a difference of opinion. You rudely interrupted him. "You aren't the best".

She had questioned Mr. Trump about whether his calling himself a nationalist was a dog whistle for white nationalists, an often repeated charge in the news media. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said. "I don't know why you'd say that, that's such a racist question", Trump told Alcindor, who happens to be African-American.

He said the investigation is a "hoax", before stepping away from the podium.

Teams are not obligated to pay players on that list, and can choose any compensation they wish if the player gets paid at all. The $180 million figure is based on the estimated amount he would have expected to earn over a long career as a pass-rusher.

As the tensions flared, Trump, who called the Russian Federation probe a "witch hunt", repeatedly demanded that Acosta "put down the mic" to allow another reporter to ask a question.

"It was quite a chaotic and extraordinary news conference and when you cut away all the other stuff, there was a clear message coming from the president".

But they lost their majority in the House, a setback for Trump after a campaign that became a referendum on his leadership. "You shouldn't treat people that way".

When Trump finished his remarks and answered a few opening questions, he called on Acosta.

After the presser, Alcindor tweeted that she was "simply asking the questions the public wants to know".
