Trump's dislike of Acosta is well known, and he took it to a new level at a wild news conference Wednesday, calling him "a rude, bad person", whom CNN should be ashamed of employing.
NBC, in particular, took some heat for their coverage of the altercation, with many conservatives wondering if Acosta should have put his hands on the staffer as she tried to take the microphone back.
It was at this point the female staff member attempted to take the microphone from Mr Acosta.
On Wednesday night, Sanders accused Acosta of "placing his hands on a young woman" and said his press credentials would be suspended "until further notice".

President Donald Trump struck back at a black female reporter's question about his calling himself "nationalist" as "emboldening white nationalists", calling it a "racist question", "insulting", and "very awful".
During the 90-minute news conference, Trump snapped at Acosta after he asked why the president had called the Central American migrant caravan "an invasion" and "demonized immigrants".
After Acosta engaged in a tense exchange with the president at the White House on Wednesday, an intern moved in to take the microphone from him, but he pulled it back while continuing to question the president. He later told Acosta: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".
'CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them. You're a very rude person.
In two separate tweets, he said: "I've just been denied entrance to the WH". The White House ought to be more careful, and the administration certainly shouldn't banish reporters for being critical.
"It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today's press conference", CNN communications said in a statement posted to Twitter. You are rude, bad person.More news: Pipe bomb suspect held without bail after first court appearance
He then said that he was glad that the Democrats ended up in control of Congress as opposed to Republicans keeping a majority by just a few seats because it would be easier for Trump and the Senate to work with Congress that way.
"Not you, not you", Trump said, trying to stop the man from speaking.
"I don't know", he said.
Acosta tweeted that this was "a lie".
Albright said videos like this pose an even greater risk of perpetuating misinformation than completely faked news videos, because they contain a grain of truth and will likely be given the assumption of accuracy.
"While President Trump has made it clear he does not respect a free press, he has a sworn obligation to protect it", CNN said in a statement.More news: Rassie Erasmus trains André Esterhuizen to dish out 'Owen Farrell tackle'
