Trump Rips Apart Reporters One By One, Including Absent Jim Acosta

"You have to treat the White House with respect, you have to treat the presidency with respect", Trump said, claiming the late Republican president, Ronald Reagan, would have acted similarly. Fox Business Network's Trish Regan said it makes no sense that Ryan thinks it has anything to do with her gender or race.

The differences are subtle but impactful: In the version shared by Sanders, Acosta's arm motion as he tries to keep the microphone away from the intern seems slightly sped up, making his motion appear more aggressive, nearly as though he is karate-chopping her.

"The White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders hours later, referring to Acosta, who then tweeted that he had been denied White House entry.

Acosta and Trump have sparred numerous times, with neither man hiding their contempt for each other.

The video tweeted by Sanders does not have any audio, which would make it easier to tamper with, said Shapiro. The video proved otherwise.

CNN responded with a statement. Acosta's pass was revoked by the administration after he refused to give up the microphone during a Wednesday press conference in which Trump called him "a rude, bad person". In footage posted by other news organizations, Acosta can be seen coming into contact with the intern, but the motion is less forceful.

And CNN has slammed the White House for its actions.

Trump also berated another CNN reporter, Abby Phillip, for asking what he called a "stupid question".

These comments come after a very contentious week between the White House and Jim Acosta.

"I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser".

Kathy Griffin, President Trump, April Ryan. "You're a very rude person", added Trump.

"Journalists should be able to do their job without fear that a tough series of questions will provoke retaliation", said Committee to Protect Journalists' Advocacy Director Courtney Radsch in a statement.

"Do you want [Whitaker] to rein in Robert Mueller?".

Phillip and Ryan are two of a small number of African American women who cover the White House. He's also had unkind things to say about women and people who are African-American. In fact, she asked the most pertinent question of the day.

A few moments later, Alcindor asked Trump about his recent characterization of himself as "a nationalist" and whether that label was "emboldening white nationalists". [President Trump's] personal insults are nothing new.

"It's ironic, Jim", she said, "that not only you and the media attack the president for his rhetoric, when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country".
