John Legend rips Trump, calls him a 'f------ embarrassment' on Twitter

"They can play that game, but we can play better because we have a thing called the United States Senate, and a lot of questionable things were done between leaks of classified information and many other elements that should not have taken place", Trump said during the almost 90-minute session with reporters in the White House East Room.

After the exchange, CNN, through its public relations department's Twitter feed, said Mr Trump's attacks on the press have gone too far. "We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern".

"This conduct is absolutely unacceptable".

Acosta called the accusation a lie.

"This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better", the statement concluded. CNN's Ali Velshi tweeted his support, writing, "I worked with Jim @Acosta during my years @CNN".

The WHCA called on the White House to "immediately reverse this weak and misguided action". In subsequent tweets, he explained that Secret Service agents working at a White House access point asked him to surrender his credential - known as a "hard pass" - to enter the grounds. He added, "I didn't put my hands on her or touch her, as the White House is alleging".

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. "But they have to come in legally".

Acosta still refused to quit badgering, prompting Trump to say: "Just sit down please. That is not an invasion". "I like real news, not fake news", he said.

United States top diplomat Pompeo's meeting with North Koreans postponed
Some analysts believe this weakened state could impact Trump's foreign policy and test his North Korean diplomatic gambit. North Korea has for years pursued nuclear and missile programs in defiance of U.N.


"Those are some of the people who decided for their own reason not to embrace - whether it's me or what we stand for", Trump told reporters.

Trump took the rare step of mocking Republican candidates who kept their distance from him during the campaign because of concerns that his divisive messages on immigration would turn off voters - but lost anyway.

The intern attempted to take the microphone from Acosta, who persisted and tried to shout out one last question. "It's a very awful thing you said to me".

"I'll tell you what".

The same day that President Trump labeled CNN reporter Jim Acosta "a rude, bad person", singer John Legend issued a sharp condemnation about the president himself. "You should not be working for CNN".

Trump then pointed at NBC reporter Peter Alexander, who leapt to the defence of Acosta, telling him: "In Jim's defense - I've traveled with him and watched him - he's a diligent reporter who busts his butt".

"I'm not a fan of yours either".
