CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta has been denied access to the White House after getting into a heated shouting match with President Donald Trump and pulling a mic away from a female aide at a press conference.
A Secret Service agent denied Acosta entry to the White House grounds on Wednesday evening, and revoked his 'hard pass', the long-term press pass issued to the White House press corps.
'I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit,' Acosta wrote in a tweet at 7.46pm.
Minutes later, the CNN journalist posted a cell phone video of a Secret Service agent asking him to hand over his press pass and removing it from his lanyard.

If Teddy Roosevelt was President, he'd have given the reporter a good thrashing. If I were Trump, I would have too. It's funny they can abuse women in front of the whole world and it's O.K. for the cause. Trump has not been advised properly. He should have said the migrants were under the control and receiving payment from George Soros. That this was an election ploy to try to make the president look bad. Stronger laws against illegal voting are required. For the stooge 5 years. For the orchestrator of the fraud life. If the candidate does it, the death penalty should apply. Then we could have assurance of a free and fair election process.
