  • The White House on Wednesday
    suspended CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s press credential
    ,
    citing a heated exchange between Acosta and President Donald
    Trump at a press conference earlier in the day.
  • Acosta had asked Trump about a group of migrants
    traveling from Central America toward the US. Trump became
    visibly agitated, berating the reporter and his employer. At
    points, Trump stepped away from the lectern while a White House
    intern moved in to take the microphone from Acosta.
  • Acosta angled away from the intern and held on to the
    microphone as he and Trump talked over each other.
  • Images captured by Reuters photographer Jonathan Ernst
    show how the scene unfolded.
