Were these Trump's most heated exchanges with reporters yet?

As President Donald Trump points to CNN's Jim Acosta a White House aide takes the microphone from him during a news conference in the East Room of the White House Wednesday Nov. 7 2018 in Washington

It lasts barely a couple of seconds, but the video of a White House staff member trying to take a microphone from the CNN reporter Jim Acosta during a chaotic press conference has become the focus of the latest online battle between Donald Trump supporters and opponents.

The artist's scathing tweet came as Trump clashed with the CNN White House reporter during a news conference following the midterm elections.

Trump was addressing a press conference in Washington, DC, where the U.S. president was to speak on the country's mid-term elections.

During the 90-minute news conference, Trump snapped at Acosta after he asked why the president had called the Central American migrant caravan "an invasion" and "demonized immigrants".

When Mr Acosta tried to follow up with another question, Mr Trump said, "That's enough!" and a female White House aide unsuccessfully tried to grab the microphone from Acosta. In August 2018, Acosta asked Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, if she agreed with Trump's assertion that journalists were the "enemy of the people".

At the White House news conference Wednesday, Trump called Acosta a "rude, bad person" when he refused to sit down after asking the president about a racist anti-immigration ad his re-election campaign had paid for and promoted ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections.

"I'll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Trump said.

"They are furious this blue wave was a blue tinkle", Levin said. Eventually Trump had to walk away from the microphone because Acosta wouldn't stop creating a spectacle. Trump has repeatedly called him "fake news", turning him into a symbol of the president's general animus toward the news media.

'I wanted to challenge you, ' Acosta started but Trump interrupted him: 'Here we go.

Whitaker added in the piece that "it is time for [Rod] Rosenstein...to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation". Unlike Sessions, Whitaker is not recused from any campaign-related issues, as he was not part of the Trump campaign.

"To say that, what you said, is so insulting to me", he said.

Following the row, CNN's Acosta had his White House media credentials withdrawn.

'The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful, ' he said.

The president expressed hope that he and his fellow Republicans in Congress could work on legislation across party lines.

"They can play that game, but we can play it better", he said.

In response, CNN said "this president's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far", in a statement. "Some people saw that as emboldening white nationalists".

John Legend criticized President Trump on Twitter Wednesday. "All I can say at that point is that I was trying to do my job".

'You are a very rude person, ' Trump told him.

On CNN, anchor Jake Tapper said that there was nothing racist about her question and that Trump's reaction was unfathomable. He said she was rude for interrupting another reporter, though he did briefly answer one of Ryan's questions.
