Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

President Donald Trump's press conference on the midterm elections ended up becoming an all-out fight between himself and multiple members of the White House press corps.

From the moment Acosta began asking Trump about the migrant caravan heading towards the United States, Trump was visibly angry. "You aren't the best".

"I'm not concerned about anything with the Russian Federation investigation, because it's a hoax".

"I'll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Trump scolded Acosta. "You are a rude, awful person; you shouldn't be working for CNN", said the president, pointing right at Acosta. You shouldn't be working for CNN. And the way you treat other people is disgusting.

"You're a very rude person, the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is frightful, and the way you treat other people are awful, you shouldn't treat people that way".

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

But as Acosta pressed on and Alexander stood there, Trump turned back to the CNN reporter.

Strong economy likely to keep Democrats from winning midterms
Trump , the GOP's chief messenger, warned that significant Democratic victories would trigger devastating consequences. Campaigning has seen Republican Trump and Barack Obama, for the Democrats, presenting very different perspectives.

The President Wants To Alter The Constitution And Ignore International Law
At the time, then-candidate Trump said that the Supreme Court "has kept us safe from executive amnesty - for now". I have always entertained the possibility that I could one day run for president if my whims led me to.

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

"When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people", Trump told Acosta.

That didn't stop Acosta from talking but Trump moved on, calling on NBC's Peter Alexander.

"They weren't actors", Mr. Trump said of the news footage in the ad.

He also told Urban Radio's April Ryan to sit down, and hectored other reporters for shouting questions at him.

When another journalist rushes to his defence, Trump responds, "well I'm not a big fan of yours either". He gave a lengthy overview of the races, said the GOP did pretty well, as Democrats didn't have a wave year as they did in 2006-and then opened it up for questions.

Acosta continued to ask questions, including whether Trump was "concerned" about potential indictments coming from the Mueller probe.
