The suspension came after President Trump got into a verbal confrontation with the CNN reporter earlier Wednesday after he continued to question the president over the “migrant caravan.” 

Trump grew angry and backed away from the podium as a White House aide tried to get the microphone from Acosta’s hand. 

“CNN shouldn’t have you working for them, you are a rude person,” Trump said. “They should be ashamed.” Trump went on to repeat a charge he has leveled at journalists before, saying, “When you report fake news, you are the enemy of the people.”

Wednesday evening White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement accusing Acosta of “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern,” calling it “absolutely unacceptable.”
