US President Donald Trump's post-election press meet at the White House witnessed him getting involved in fuming exchanges with reporters several times as he termed one "rude and terrible" person and alleged another of asking "racist" queries.

He attended one-and-a-half-hour press conference on Wednesday and he walked away from the microphone a few times rejecting to take questions from reporters.

Angry on one of the reporter who was speaking out of turn, “Very hostile, it is such a hostile media. It's so sad," Trump stated angrily.

Fume to a CNN reporter's question on a refugee group from Central America moving towards the United States, several of whom were termed "criminals" by Trump, the obviously distress US president said, "I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN."

When the CNN reporter rejected to hand over the microphone to a White House staffer, as Trump had called another journalist to put question, the US president stated, "That's enough. Put down the mic."

When the media person asked whether Trump was concerned about condemnation coming down in this inquiry, he said, "I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person, You shouldn't be working for CNN."

"I think, that's unfair," the CNN journalist stated.

But President Trump continued saying, "You're a very rude person. The way you treat (White House Press Secretary) Sarah Huckabee Sanders is horrible and the way you treat other people are horrible. You shouldn't treat people that way."
