White House Stands Behind Apparently Doctored Video Of CNN's Jim Acosta

Trump blows up at Jim Acosta

On Twitter, Acosta responded to Sanders' statement with a simple declaration, tweeting: "This is a lie".

"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin accused the White House aide who got caught up in the crossfire between President Trump and Jim Acosta on Wednesday of committing battery against the CNN reporter.

White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

White House staffers decide whether journalists are eligible, though the Secret Service determines whether their applications are approved.

President Trump gave a news conference on Wednesday following the midterm elections.

And James asked how the media can deal with a President that will lie to them. "To be honest. You aren´t the best", he said.

As the reporter continued, Mr Trump declared: "That's enough, put down the mic" and walked away from his own podium, as if leaving.

Acosta questioned him about his rhetoric on immigration during the campaign and his deployment of troops to the USA border with Mexico purportedly to stop a so-called "caravan" of migrants.

'I wanted to challenge you, ' Acosta started but Trump interrupted him: 'Here we go.

'I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN, ' he snapped. He threw out a hasty question about the Russian Federation investigation, but President Trump spoke over him.

"You are a rude, awful person - and you shouldn't be working for CNN".

"They can play that game, but we can play it better", he said.

As a result, the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said in a statement: "President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration". However, as noted by Acosta and many others, the people travelling within the "caravan" are still hundreds of miles from the U.S. "You shouldn't treat people that way".

Alexander came to his colleague's defense. His statement, "Pardon me, ma'am", is not included in the video Sanders shared. "He's a diligent reporter who busts his butt like the rest of us".

'I consider it an invasion.

Former president of the White House Correspondents Association, Jeff Mason, refuted the White House accusation that Acosta placed his hand on a female White House intern.

Despite the Democrats gaining control of the House of Representatives for the first time since 2010, Mr Trump said voters had "clearly rebuked" the party. "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people". "They are not only risky, they are disturbingly un-American", CNN tweeted after the exchange.

"You know what the word is", President Trump said, concluding a testy exchange at Wednesday's news conference.

The Trump administration barred another CNN reporter from attending an open media event in July but until now has not gone as far as removing a credential, known as a "hard pass", which enables journalists to enter the White House grounds.

The White House sought to brush aside suggestions it is stifling a free press.

The news conference, which became increasingly bad-tempered, and the subsequent row have prompted predictable reactions from each side of the increasingly entrenched political divide.

She said that "on the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist".

CNN's reporters, namely Acosta, have been frequently seen on the front lines of the White House's tense press briefings.
