President Donald Trump and CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta got into a heated verbal back-and-forth at the White House on Wednesday that resulted in the president telling the reporter to "sit down" and aides wrestling with the reporter to try and get the mic out of his hands.

Finally, Trump snapped at Acosta.

"I want to challenge you on one of the statements that you made in the tail end of the campaign in the midterms", Acosta told Trump at a press conference following the midterm elections.

Mr. Trump later turned his ire on NBC's Peter Alexander, saying he's "not a fan" of the reporter.

Later in the presser, Trump ordered CNN contributor April Ryan to sit down and be quiet when she tried to interject with a question.
