CNN’s Jim Acosta refused to put down the microphone until President Trump made a move from behind the podium.
What many will not see is how Acosta yanked back the mic when the young White House aide tried to remove it according to President Trump’s request.

Trump refused to answer a followup question from CNN reporter Robert Acosta, who persisted in his attempt to ask the president about the Russia investigation. Trump spoke loudly over Acosta and demanded he hand over the microphone.
“That’s enough,” Trump said repeatedly as Acosta continued to try and ask his question.
“On the Russia investigation, are you concerned that you may .,, ?” Acosta said before Trump interrupted him, saying, “I’m not concerned about anything with the Russia investigation because it’s a hoax.”
Trump stepped away from the lectern for a moment before returning to the microphone.
“I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them,” the president said, shaking a finger at Acosta.
