- After a testy exchange with President Donald Trump during a post-midterm election news conference on Wednesday, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta has had White House press credential suspended.

In a tweet Mr Acosta says he was stopped by the Secret Service when he tried to re-enter the White House on Wednesday evening.

A White House aide tried to grab the microphone off the journalist, who Trump also called an enemy of the people.

According to reports, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said they revoked Acosta's hard press pass, meaning Acosta must be escorted on property.

The president complained that the media did not cover the humming economy and was responsible for much of the country's divided politics. At that point, Acosta stood back up and began mentioning, without a microphone, the explosive devices that were recently sent to CNN and some of the president's political opponents. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is frightful". "They are not only risky, they are disturbingly un-American", the network said, voicing its support for Acosta and "journalists everywhere".

Iranian leaders and particularly IRGC officials often make threatening remarks about the US and its allies in the region. The move has raised tensions in the Middle East as America's maximalist approach to the Islamic Republic takes hold.

Following yesterday's midterm elections, which saw the Democrats take control of the House while Republicans increased their majority in the Senate, Donald Trump's words and actions are beyond atrocious, even by Donald Trump standards.

Alcindor asked Trump whether his recent embrace of the label "nationalist" emboldened white nationalists across the country.

"That's such a racist question ..." She said that "on the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist".

"To say that, what you said, is so insulting to me", he said. "To be honest. You aren't the best", he said. He threw out a hasty question about the Russian Federation investigation, but President Trump spoke over him.
