Trump announced the news on Twitter, writing: "We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States".

"You are a rude, bad person", Trump told Acosta.

We've got more newsletters we think you'll find interesting.

Trump leaned into the microphone and said, "Here we go"? seemingly relishing the confrontation.

Mr Acosta has had his White House media credentials withdrawn following a fiery row with Trump during a Presidential press conference yesterday. "It's a group of migrants moving up from Central America towards the border with the U.S.".

Acosta: "Why did you characterise it as such?"

'I consider it an invasion. "When you are holding something and you snatch this from me, this is now an extension of me and that means you've battered me, you've assaulted me".

"No, not at all".

They weren't the only ones taking to Twitter to have their say.

That's what the migrants are trying to do? they say they intend to seek asylum, he said.

Acosta persisted, saying: "They are hundreds of miles away". "Having said that, I am troubled by pulling the hard pass because-you can argue he was a jerk and he deserves it, but obviously at a certain point you begin to wonder ... You should not be working for CNN".

Invoking the words of a fellow writer, Rowling cited George Orwell's 1984 to denounce the White House's actions.

It's been another awful day for CNN, though Trump's favorite "fake news" network to mock, and its notoriously grandstanding reporter, don't appear to have figured that out just yet.

"If the White House Press Corps doesn't do anything about the Acosta situation right now, if they don't boycott or take a stand, we are on the road to full authoritarianism", actor Kumail Nanjiani said, apparently with total sincerity. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable.

"The question is: did the reporter make contact or not?" she said in a statement. Acosta, President Trump's favorite punching bag, got into a tense exchange about his rhetoric on immigration, specifically about the illegal alien caravan approaching the southern border.

Acosta shot back at the accusation of misconduct, tweeting "this is a lie" as his network and a number of Washington journalists who had been at the press conference voiced support for him.

"The White House should immediately reinstate Jim Acosta's press pass, and refrain from punishing reporters by revoking their access-that's not how a free press works".

Acosta was stopped by the Secret Service from entering the White House at about 7 pm.

In a later tweet, Mr Acosta said Ms Sanders' assertion he placed his hands on the woman was "a lie".

The edited version has been shared by White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders. A White House intern eventually moved to take away Acosta's microphone.

"The video was not "doctored" by me - all I did was zoom in on the original from the Daily Wire", Watson said.

Acosta joined a room of other journalists in questioning the president after the mid-term elections, and the topic of immigration came up.
