WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) ‘ The White House war on the press took a new turn with the banning of a CNN reporter, marking a tense new phase in the long-running battle between President Donald Trump and his chief media antagonist. The ban on CNN’s Jim Acosta came after a heated exchange at a White House news conference Wednesday where Trump called the TV reporter a “rude, terrible person” and an “enemy of the people.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced the decision to revoke Acosta’s pass hours after the event, claiming it was because Acosta was inappropriately “placing his hands” on a woman who was taking back a microphone.

“It’s a horrific scene in there,” Dean told a news conference in the parking lot of the Borderline Bar & Grill. “There’s blood everywhere.”

The gunman at the country dance bar was tall and wearing all black with a hood over his head and his face partly covered, witnesses told TV stations at the scene. He first fired on a person working the door, then appeared to open fire at random at the people inside, they said.

Many more people had more minor injuries, including some that came from their attempt to flee, Dean said.

Trump warns House Dems against ‘war-like’ posture in boastful, bitter remarks

President Donald Trump was at turns triumphal, resentful, conciliatory and combative in a Wednesday post-election press conference that exceeded even his usual freewheeling standards.

Rather than concede that a Democratic House could cost him dearly, Trump cast himself as the previous night’s big winner.

‘I thought it was a very close to complete victory,’ Trump told reporters, saying that his party had ‘defied history’ by picking up Senate seats.

And amid mockery of GOP candidates who lost after refusing to embrace him on the stump and unusually barbed exchanges with reporters, the president sought to frame the politics of divided government to his advantage, setting up Democrats as an obstructionist party motivated by a zeal to bring down his presidency.
