Donald Trump Viciously Attacks CNN Reporter Jim Acosta

CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked Donald Trump whether he thought he had "dehumanised migrants" in his Midterm elections campaign rails, challenging the US President to explain why he had referred to the caravan of migrants arriving from Central America as an "invasion".

"Thank you for telling me that I appreciate it", Mr Trump says.

It got hot nearly immediately.

The dispute began when Acosta first asked Trump about the migrant caravan approaching the USA southern border.

When NBC's Peter Alexander tried to stand up for his peer, Trump turned his ire on him as well. That further infuriated the President.

When Alexander asked Trump if he's trying to pit Americans against each other with his rhetoric about Democrats, he retorted "what are you trying to be [Acosta]?"

The big victor : You guessed it, the Democrat on the ticket, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum , who managed to secure a victory. A small crowd of supporters chanted, "We want Ron!" "Let's bring this home", he said , echoing Gillum's campaign refrain.

Acosta repeatedly presses Sanders in her rare briefings to clarify quotes and policy from the president. "When you report fake news, which CNN does, a lot, you are the enemy of the people". The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful, and the way you treat other people is awful. You are a rude awful person.

Following a back and forth over the caravan, Trump said, "Honestly, I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be much better". "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them".

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

When another reporter shouted a question a few minutes later, Trump asked her to sit down.

When another journalist rushes to his defence, Trump responds, "well I'm not a big fan of yours either". "It's so sad", Trump said.

Trump and Acosta have long have a contentious relationship as the CNN reporter often asks the president questions that seemed created to illicit a reaction from him.
