CNN senior White House reporter Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” press credentials has been suspended “until further notice,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
The decision comes after a tense standoff between Acosta and President Donald Trump during a press conference on Wednesday.
During the press conference, Trump dodged a question from Acosta when a White House intern walked up to take his microphone away. Acosta held on to the microphone.
Sanders suggested Acosta had laid hands on the intern.
Acosta said the White House’s account of the incident is “a lie.”
