Jim Acosta

US President Donald Trump (R) gets into a heated exchange with CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta (C) as NBC correspondent Peter Alexander (L) looks on during a post-election press conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC on November 7, 2018.

(WGGB/WSHM) --  Mixed reaction tonight after the White House announced to suspend CNN Reporter Jim Acosta's press credentials "until further notice."

This comes after Acosta and President Trump exchanged heated words during a post-midterms news conference.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders claims the decision was made to pull Acosta's credentials because he put his hands on a White House intern.

In response, CNN said Sander's lied about that and claims the reason was in retaliation to Acosta's challenging questions during the press conference.
