Acosta remained at the press conference questioning about the rhetoric that Trump during the election campaign, had used about the migrantenkaravaan. He would also still have about the research to the Russian interference in the presidential election of 2016, and refused to take the microphone to give back to an employee of the president. The White House pulled thereon “until further order” the accreditation of the journalist in.

The IFJ is it not possible that Acosta, by him the microphone to take off, not got the opportunity to have questions asked. The organization demands that the journalist immediately its accreditation back from the White House.
