Press secretary Sarah Sanders says the White House is suspending Jim Acosta's access.
Press secretary Sarah Sanders says a reporter's access was removed because he put "his hands on a young woman".
Mr Acosta, chief White House correspondent for CNN, was called a "rude, terrible person" by Mr Trump at a press conference on Wednesday.
A staff member tried to take his microphone during the exchange.
However, Mr Acosta refused to give it up as he attempted to ask the president a further question.
Video of the incident quickly appeared online.
