The White House on Wednesday suspended CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s press credential, citing a heated exchange between Acosta and President Donald Trump at a press conference earlier in the day.
Acosta posed several questions to Trump, who became visibly agitated. He berated the reporter and his employer — at points stepping away from the lectern while a White House intern moved in to take the microphone from Acosta.
Acosta angled away from the intern as he and Trump talked over each other.
Images captured by Reuters photographer Jonathan Ernst show how the scene unfolded.
