President Donald Trump has been involved in an extraordinary exchange with a CNN reporter at a press conference, the day after the USA midterm elections saw his chances of advancing his legislative agenda hampered.
"When you talk about division, it's people like this who cause division", he said of the reporter. And the way you treat other people is frightful.
Acosta jumped back up and, minus microphone, could be heard talking "pipe bombs" - three of which had been sent to CNN; a rabid Donald Trump supporter in Florida has been arrested for the crime. "I never anxious about it because I've never used racist remarks", Trump told a Yahoo reporter.
"Just sit down!" Trump shouted at Acosta.
Some reporters pushed him on whether his campaign rhetoric on migrants from central America was divisive, as well as the Russian Federation investigation - but Mr Trump aggressively pushed back. "We used to call it the press".
"I want them to come into the country, but they have to come in legally", Trump said. It's a group of migrants moving toward the border, ' Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, said.
PBS Newshour's Yamiche Alcindor asked Trump about his remarks on the campaign trail in which he called himself a "nationalist", noting that some people saw it as emboldening white nationalists. You have nationalists. You have globalists.
Yamiche Alcindor, a White House correspondent for the PBS NewsHour, on November 7 asked if Trump's use of the word "nationalism" at several rallies was meant to embolden "white nationalism". "You and I have a difference of opinion", Trump replied.
Alcindor moved on to a different topic.
Trump stopped him again "Because I consider it an invasion".
When NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the mic for the next question, he defended Acosta as a "diligent reporter" - earning Trump's ire.
Flake was a steady critic of Trump's policies during the first two years of his presidency. "It's so sad", he said, interrupting the same reporter he accused Ryan of speaking over.
