Trump insults reporters, claims Acosta video wasn't altered

President Donald Trump speaks to CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference at the White House on Nov. 7 2018 in Washington

Looking back at Acosta, who again rose up in his own defence, Trump added: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".

In response, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders distributed a video which she claims shows Acosta pushing a female White House intern as she attempts to take the microphone from Acosta.

Acosta called the White House's claims "lies" and CNN defended its reporter in a statement.

The National Association of Black Journalists, which also called for Acosta's White House credentials to be reinstated on Thursday, celebrated Ryan, Phillip and Alcindor on Twitter.

"As you know, Mr. President, the caravan was not an invasion".

One of "The View" co-hosts thought the White House intern "assaulted" Acosta when trying to reach for the microphone - co-host Meghan McCain asked what people's reactions would have been if the tables were turned. "She shouldn't be. You've got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect". He said one had asked "a stupid question", and he singled out April Ryan, a correspondent for Urban Radio Networks, calling her "very nasty" and "a loser".

"Sources with direct knowledge tell Jonathan Swan that since the earliest days of his presidency, Trump has mused about revoking press credentials for reporters who infuriate him", Axios reports. He commented on the Acosta event: "Not only didn't he accost her-he said 'pardon me, ma'am.' But that's where the Hucka-B.S. machine comes in".

Acosta and Trump have sparred numerous times, with neither man hiding their contempt for each other. CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. "I can not defend Jim Acosta", Fleischer added. "The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta", said a company spokesman. "I think we deserve that". "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video", Sanders wrote.

A frame-by-frame comparison of the video shows that Sander's clip has been edited to speed up Acosta's arm movement as he touches the woman's arm.

"But that is not the job of White House reporters". She gets publicity, and then she gets a pay raise or she gets a contract with, I think, CNN.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told "Fox and Friends" on November 8 "The reporter from NBC was already standing, getting ready to ask his question, and she was just doing her job, which was to reclaim the microphone that belongs to the federal government".

"Others try to get the president".

At the press conference, NBC News reporter Peter Alexander tried to stand up for Acosta, saying he was a "diligent reporter".
