CNN released a statement following President Donald Trump's press conference on Wednesday, saying his attacks on the network's White House correspondent Jim Acosta and the media are "dangerous" and "disturbingly un-American".

At a White House press conference on Wednesday afternoon, President Trump first discussed the mixed midterm results in a flat tone.

Acosta had been questioning Trump about his claim that a caravan of migrants posed a threat to the USA when the president turned on the journalist. Shouting over Trump's attempts to move on to another reporter, Acosta managed to ask a question about the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump interrupted Acosta. "I'm not concerned about anything with the Russian investigation because it's a hoax". Trump has also reportedly removed Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein from the investigation and appointed Matthew Whitaker as acting AG.

According to reports, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said they revoked Acosta's hard press pass, meaning Acosta must be escorted on property.

"I've traveled with him and watched him", Garrett said. "I like real news, not fake news", he said.

On CNN, anchor Jake Tapper said that there was nothing racist about her question and that Trump's reaction was unfathomable.

In the three races he targeted on the final day, Mr Trump's picks won, with Republican Mike Braun defeating Democratic senator Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Republican Josh Hawley defeating Democratic senator Claire McCaskill in Missouri and Republican attorney general Mike DeWine defeating Democrat Richard Cordray in the race for OH governor.

Spin reached out to the White House press secretary to for further clarification on what Trump meant by having "the highest poll numbers ever among African Americans" and will update if we hear back.

'I love our country. I do. And the way you treat other people is awful.

"The Trump thing works", says GOP pollster Frank Luntz. I don't use racist remarks and if I did you would have known about it.

The poll also noted that Trump had 29 percent support among black people on August 6, compared with 15 percent on August 3, 2017. I think you should let me run the country.

"I consider it to be an invasion", Trump responded.

"Just sit down, please", Trump told Acosta, who asked the president off mic about his description of the media as "the enemy of the people".

Trump took the rare step of mocking Republican candidates who kept their distance from him during the campaign because of concerns that his divisive messages on immigration would turn off voters - but lost anyway.
