    After White House suspended the press credentials of Jim Acosta on Wednesday, hours after the CNN reporter tangled with President Donald Trump during a televised conference, many social media users in India have raised their protest.

    A day after CNN's White House reporter Jim Acosta shot to fame with his 'rude' question to American President Donald Trump, he has become a social media rage in India. Netizens are idolizing him by claiming that every country should have reporters like Acosta. 

    The video in question has been shared multiple times and is now viral. 

    ​During the news conference, Trump snapped at Acosta after he asked why the President had called the Central American migrant caravan "an invasion" and "demonized immigrants." Trump called Acosta "a rude, terrible person."

    Social media users in India are saying Trump is a threat to democracy. 

    ​Users in India are also showering praises on the news channel CNN for supporting Acosta in the whole episode.
