Trump attacks CNN's Jim Acosta

Donald Trump has launched an extraordinary tirade against a reporter during a press conference following the midterm elections.

The US president ordered the journalist to put down his microphone and “just sit down”.

The row began following a question about the migrant caravan approaching the US, when Mr Trump was asked by CNN’s Jim Acosta if he thought he had “demonised” migrants by calling the group an “invasion”.

“I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better,” the Republican said.

After Mr Acosta attempted to follow up his question with a second on Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, Mr Trump added, pointing angrily: “That’s enough. That’s enough. That’s enough. Excuse me, that’s enough.”

Mr Trump said he was “not concerned about anything” because the investigation was “a hoax”.

TVNL Comment: It is terribly upsetting that the media allow one of their own to be trashed by the madman in the White House.  Every journalist in the room should turn around and walk out of any press conference where such ugliness takes place.  Respect is given when it is deserved, and when it is returned.  Trump should be told that he will not be given the privilege of a press conference until he shows respect for the press.
