Donald Trump, CNN's Jim Acosta Argue at Press Conference

In what may be the most freaky moment of his presidency (which is really saying something), Trump unleashed hellfire on reporters from CNN and NBC in a post-election White House press conference on Wednesday.

Trump answered several questions from reporters covering the White House, including questions about the midterm election results and how he will try to work with Democratic leadership in the House.

Mr. Trump then became angry with CNN reporter Jim Acosta when he wanted to continue questioning the president about the caravans making their way north through Mexico, and Mr. Trump wanted to end the questioning.

"I can't understand you", he told one woman with an accent, and when African-American White House Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked him about his connection to white nationalism, he told her she was being "racist".

Legend has always been a critic of Trump, telling The Daily Beast prior to the election in 2016 that the then-candidate was "utterly unqualified".

"That's enough. That's enough", Trump said. The way you treat Sarah Huckabee Sanders is awful.

It means the Trump presidency - which already had no free rein despite a Republican-led chamber - will face a significant challenge, setting the tone over the remaining two years.

"I give her a lot of credit. To be honest. You aren't the best", he said.

After years of rumors , it looks like Samsung is finally going to show the world its first smartphone with a foldable display. That could change, especially if more mainstream phone makers like Samsung start making flexible phones as well.

"On the campaign trail you called yourself a nationalist", she asked.

Acosta then stands up and says something (it's a bit inaudible since he doesn't have the mic) about Trump's labeling of the media as the "enemy of the people" and the pipe bombs sent to CNN.

He also said that "I retired" Jeff Flake, the Senate Republican from Arizona who has criticized him.

Following the testy confrontations, CNN tweeted that Trump's "ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far".

President Trump argued the GOP's expansion in the Senate clearly shows voters were upset by the Democrats' handling of the confirmation process for now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh. During a White House press briefing last month, Acosta tried to force Sanders to spell out which news outlets are considered to be the "enemy of the people".

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. "You and I have a difference of opinion", Trump replied calmly.

"That's such a racist question", he repeated, pointing his finger at her. "Let me tell you: That's a racist question", he said, as he repeatedly interrupted and cut her off. "You shouldn't treat people that way". "You are a rude, bad person".
