[VIDEO] Donald Trump, CNN's Jim Acosta Argue at Press Conference

Acosta and Trump began sparring after the CNN White House correspondent asked him about why a so-called caravan of migrants heading from Latin America to the southern US border was emphasized as an issue in the just-concluded midterm races.

President Trump opened his first press conference after the midterm elections - the longest press conference of his presidency - with talk about bipartisanship, but he quickly turned combative, sparring with reporters.

Acosta asked, after informing the president that the caravan was not an invasion but rather "a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the U.S". Shouting over Trump's attempts to move on to another reporter, Acosta managed to ask a question about the Russian Federation investigation.

President Donald Trump pushed back Wednesday against the idea his rhetoric could be emboldening white nationalists, telling the PBS NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor: "That's such a racist question". "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee is terrible". "Presidents never enjoy pointed questions from the press, but President Trump should respect their right to ask them and respect Americans enough to answer them". And the way you treat other people is disgusting.

Mr Trump also said Republican candidates who distanced themselves and didn't accept his "embrace" performed "very poorly", singling out Mike Coffman and Mia Love.

He said that he thought it was probably better that Republicans haven't got a slight majority in the House, and instead the Democrats have the majority. Another reporter also asked if Trump was a racist because of support from white nationalists.

This thing was already planned for Samsung Galaxy Note 10 but seeing it for Samsung Galaxy S10 also will result in controversy. The anticipated Samsung Galaxy S10 is widely expected to see a new kind of display , and "very significant" design changes.

Acosta then stands up and says something (it's a bit inaudible since he doesn't have the mic) about Trump's labeling of the media as the "enemy of the people" and the pipe bombs sent to CNN.

"Here we go", Trump said. And the way you treat other people is terrible. However, this wound Trump up even more and he ended up saying he wasn't a huge fan of Alexander either.

"I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN". You are a rude and awful people and you shouldn't be working for CNN. I don't use racist remarks and if I did you would have known about it.

"Just sit down!" Trump shouted at Acosta.

'What you say is so insulting to me, ' he told her. Trump adds that Democrats have "nothing, zero" on him. Why do I have among the highest poll numbers with African Americans?
