Combative Trump brawls with media and slams his own party

John Legend lambasted President Donald Trump's behavior at a press conference at the White House on Wednesday after the president ripped into CNN's Jim Acosta, labeling him a "rude, awful person". When Acosta asked if Trump was "demonizing" immigrants with his rhetoric and controversial campaign ads, Trump suggested, "I think you should let me run the country".

ACOSTA: Mr. President, I had one other question if I may ask on the Russian Federation investigation.

"That is such a racist question", Trump told Alcindor. Trump said, blasting Acosta.

Acosta was called "rude" by Trump who added that the way the reporter treats White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was "horrible".

Trump has been challenged on his power to restrict immigration throughout his presidency - and the caravan is no different. "I also love the world, and I don't mind helping the world, but we have to straighten out our country first". "What you just said is so insulting to me". It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question.

Alexander defended Acosta as a "diligent reporter" when he finally had the chance to ask a question.

He even said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi deserved the honor of being House speaker and he might send a few Republican votes her way.

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in response that Republicans "value a free press, but it's unfortunate that some reporters seem more interested in getting their own cable show than doing their jobs". She dodged the question, only answering with, "I think the president has made his position known". "I don't know why you'd say that, that's such a racist question", Trump told Alcindor, who happens to be African-American. You are a very rude person.

One recent survey from Rasmussen, a generally Trump-friendly poll, found that approval number at 36 per cent. At that point, Acosta stood back up and began mentioning, without a microphone, the explosive devices that were recently sent to CNN and some of the president's political opponents. "You're a very rude, bad person".

Trump mocked Republicans who avoided campaigning with him before congressional elections and who were not elected during their races, referencing a list of candidates by name.

"Well I'm not a fan of yours either", Trump replied.

"Hopefully, we can work together next year delivering to the American people", Trump said.
