Trump Demands Journos to Respect White House After Revoking Acosta's Press Pass

The comments came after Trump had heated exchanges with both Ryan and CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Wednesday.

During a brief media availability outside the White House, the president gave more fodder to fans who enjoy watching him scrap with journalists.

"It wasn't doctored", the president said.

As I said yesterday, I have no desire to defend Infowars and don't trust them or their denials, but these were independent experts with different views. Earlier in the video, Shapiro notices three frames that were frozen to slow down the action.

He added that the claims of the video doctoring are "just dishonest reporting".

CNN's Jim Acosta told CNN's Anderson Cooper that he *never* touched the female White House aide that tried to take the mic away from him. "Abby Phillip did not ask a "stupid" question today at the White House. You ask a lot of stupid questions". "What a stupid question that is".

"There are embarrassingly few black and hispanic reporters in the WH press corps and four have been personally insulted by the President this week", he wrote. "And never surprising", CNN said in a statement, reports Variety. "I don't hold him for that because it wasn't overly, you know, horrible". She's gets publicity, and then she gets a pay raise and a contract with I think CNN.

"As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth", said Whitney Shefte, the association's president.

The topic has been one of the main headlines in Washington since Wednesday when Trump abruptly fired Jeff Sessions as attorney-general and named Matthew Whitaker, who has strongly criticised the Russian Federation probe, to replace him. "I will continue to ask the questions that affect America, all of America". "This president seems not to like it, so therefore I'm a loser".

Trump also called out Acosta for his well-documented and theatrical spats with Sanders during the normal course of press briefings. But he said there could be others.

"I saw someone who I think was very very frustrated and very very angry that I was bringing up the fact that some people think he was emboldening white nationalists", Alcindor said on "Hardball With Chris Matthews" on Wednesday. It's a very special place.

Trump claims reporters aren't "treating the office of the president with respect. You have to treat the presidency with respect".

The New York Times also noted that Acosta's monologues have led "some of his rival White House reporters" to roll their eyes. In a press release, the group said it stood in solidarity with Acosta and argued Trump did a "disservice to democracy" by demeaning journalists.
