Sunny Hostin accuses White House aide of battery against Jim Acosta

Mr Acosta stood up and began to ask a question relating to the statements Mr Trump made at the end of the midterms campaign.

Sanders used a 15 second video clip that appeared to have been significantly manipulated to prove her accusation.

The move will be seen as clear interference with the way White House Correspondents' Association members cover the administration.

"We will not tolerate the inappropriate behaviour clearly documented in this video", Sanders said, posting a video of the CNN reporter allegedly placing his hand on a young woman.

But in a statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders described Acosta's earlier behaviour during the conference "absolutely unacceptable" and said his White House press pass would be suspended "until further notice".

After a contentious exchange between Trump and Acosta at a press conferene Wednesday afteroon - one day after the midterm elections - Acosta was prevented from entering the White House on Wednesday night.

The back-and-forth between Trump and Acosta quickly grew heated after the reporter challenged Trump's characterization of the caravan as an "invasion" and asked why the president had "demonized" immigrants in a widely criticized ad rejected by networks.

Mr Trump told him: "CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them".

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced the decision hours after the news network's Jim Acosta sparred with Trump during a raucous to-and-fro. "You and I have a difference of opinion", he said.

Acosta said the White House's account of the incident is "a lie".

Mashable has reached out to the White House for comment on the allegations surrounding the video Sanders shared.

"The question is: did the reporter make contact or not?" "You are are a rude, bad person".

The White House Correspondents' Association released a statement Wednesday saying it "strongly objects to the Trump Administration's decision to use US Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship".

Mr Trump pushed back aggressively, directing his criticism at the media, and particularly at CNN. "Honestly, I know you have it written down, that's a racist question". "Mia Love gave me no love", he said.

Acosta said he learned that his access was withdrawn from a text message on his phone. They are not only unsafe, the are disturbingly un-American.

"I think we have crossed a new line, because the reason for taking away Acosta's credentials is a lie", said Dan Kennedy, a Northeastern University journalism professor.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump had a contentious exchange with Acosta during a press conference.
