US President Trump blasts reporters at post-election news conference at White House

US President Donald Trump's relationship with media, especially White House press, touched a new low on Wednesday when he got into a verbal spat with several scribes at the post-election press conference. The spat ended in suspension of press pass of CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta. 
During his around one-and-a-half-hour press conference, Trump had several angry exchanges with reporters a number of times as he termed one "rude and terrible" person and accused another of asking "racist" questions. He walked away from the microphone a few times refusing to take questions from reporters, who, he said, were speaking out of turn. "Very hostile. It is such a hostile media. It's so sad," Trump said.
To the CNN reporter's question on a migrant caravan from Central America moving towards the United States, many members of whom were termed "criminals" by Trump, the visibly upset president said, "I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN."
When the CNN reporter refused to hand over the microphone to a White House staffer, as Trump had called another journalist to ask question, the president said, "That's enough. Put down the mic."
When the reporter asked whether Trump was worried about indictments coming down in this investigation, he said, "I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person, You shouldn't be working for CNN."
