[USA], Nov 8 (ANI): Twitterverse is in fury after a heated argument ensued between CNN journalist Jim Acosta and United States President Donald Trump during a presser, which ultimately led to the suspension of the CNN White House Chief Correspondent's press card.

While singer John Legend termed Trump as an 'embarrassment', others asked CNN and other journalists to sue him for slander.

"The president is a f--king embarrassment," tweeted the 'All of me' singer.

Here's what others said:

A confrontational exchange was seen during a press conference on Wednesday between Trump and Acosta while discussing the results of the midterm elections.

Trump refused to answer a follow-up question from Acosta, who repeatedly tried to ask the US President about Russian investigation. He then demanded a White House aide to remove the reporter's microphone, as the journalist persisted in his attempt to ask the question to Trump.

Following the argument, the White House suspended Acosta's press pass for an unspecified duration. (ANI)
