The president then tried to move onto another reporter as Acosta began to ask him about the Russian Federation investigation.
Trump continued to be combative when Peter Alexander from NBC News got his turn at the mic next, and defended Acosta as a diligent reporter.
He said the investigation is a "hoax", before stepping away from the podium. Go ahead. You are a very rude person, the way that you treat Sarah Huckabee Sanders is disgusting.
President Trump pointed to his poll numbers among African Americans and then ripped the question as "racist".

Trump championed Republican gains in the Senate and said Republicans minimised losses in the House of Representatives in spite of a "historic" number of Republicans retiring from the chamber.
Following the testy confrontations, CNN tweeted that Trump's "ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far". I also love the world, and I don't mind helping the world, but we have to straighten out our country first. "The way you treat other people is disgusting!" During a White House press briefing last month, Acosta tried to force Sanders to spell out which news outlets are considered to be the "enemy of the people".
President Trump argued the GOP's expansion in the Senate clearly shows voters were upset by the Democrats' handling of the confirmation process for now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Trump noted that the Republicans were outspent but still managed to stave off a "blue wave" election.
TRUMP: Honestly I think you should let me run the country. You are a rude and bad people and you shouldn't be working for CNN.
Some reporters pushed him on whether his campaign rhetoric on migrants from central America was divisive, as well as the Russian Federation investigation - but Mr Trump aggressively pushed back.
"Hopefully, we can work together next year delivering to the American people", Trump said.
