A CNN reporter has been banned from the White House after engaging in a tense back and forth with Donald Trump during a news conference.

The White House has accused Jim Acosta of "unacceptable" conduct after a female intern tried to take the microphone from him - claiming he put his hands on her.

Jim Acosta says the claim's "a lie" in a tweet - and also posted a video of his press pass being taken away.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The US Secret Service just asked for my credential to enter the WH. As I told the officer, I don’t blame him. I know he’s just doing his job.

The journalist clashed with President Trump as he took questions following the US midterm election results.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern...</p>&mdash; Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) <a href="https://twitter.com/PressSec/status/1060333176252448768?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 8, 2018</a></blockquote>
