An association representing the White House press corps on Wednesday dubbed the Trump administration's revocation of a CNN reporter's credentials "out of line" and "unacceptable".

The exchange marked a new low for Trump's relationship with journalists, which has largely been hostile.

Trump added that the way Acosta had treated Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was "awful".

The news conference, which stretched close to 90 minutes, quickly turned raucous when some reporters pushed him on whether his campaign rhetoric on migrants from central America was divisive - and on developments in a federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any coordination between Moscow and the Trump campaign. "You run CNN, and if you did it well, your ratings would be higher", Trump said. "You should not be working for CNN".

UPDATE, with video CNN punched back, as President Donald Trump would say, at POTUS's attack on the cable news network's correspondent Jim Acosta at this morning's White House presser. The incident followed an interaction between United States President Donald Trump and Acosta, where Trump called the reporter a "rude and awful person" after he asked him several questions during a post midterm election press conference.

"CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you work for them", he said. "You are a very rude. person. the way you treat Sarah Huckabee is". "You shouldn't treat people that way". "You shouldn't treat people like that".

"It's a different thing", said Trump.

She dodged the question, only answering with, "I think the president has made his position known".

These weren't the only reporters to grate on the president at this press conference, though. NBC News reporter Peter Alexander attempted to defend Acosta when he got the mic, leading Trump to call him "fake news".

Trump mocked Republicans who avoided campaigning with him before congressional elections and who were not elected during their races, referencing a list of candidates by name.

Mr Trump said: "That's enough".
