President Donald Trump has been involved in an extraordinary exchange with a CNN reporter at a press conference, the day after the U.S. midterm elections saw his chances of advancing his legislative agenda hampered.
"Honestly, I think you should let me run the country".
President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused the PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, who is black, of asking a "racist question" about whether his rhetoric emboldened white nationalists.
As Acosta persisted in badgering Trump with questions, the agitated president told him to sit down and walked away from the podium. "Sorry about that Mia", Mr Trump said.
Trump has been challenged on his power to restrict immigration throughout his presidency - and the caravan is no different. And the way you treat other people is terrible. "Mia Love gave me no love", he said.
"They can play that game, but we can play it better", he said.
It smacked of theater, given that Trump had picked pugnacious Acosta from among the crowd of reporters, to ask a question. "And last night the Republican Party defied history to expand our Senate majority while significantly beating expectations in the House".

"I love our country, I do".
"Thank you, Mr. President. You shouldn't treat people that way". Trump also hit out at Acosta on Wednesday for being rude towards Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
In a stinging put down of Acosta, he said: "I tell you what CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them".
Trump said he "never" worries about any record of racist remarks because "I have never used racist remarks". Why do I have among the highest poll numbers with African Americans?
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.
The president told him his time was done, telling him to sit down and to stop being a "rude, bad person".
