Trump threatens to revoke more White House press passes after Acosta

President Trump answered several, wide ranging questions Friday morning for the White House press pool before hopping on a plane to Paris.

"It wasn't doctored", the president said. "They gave a close-up view".

Abba Shapiro, an independent video producer who examined the Wednesday footage at AP's request, noticed that frames in the tweeted video of the exchange at the news conference were frozen to slow down the action, allowing it to run the same length as the AP one.

The intern attempted to grab the microphone from Mr Acosta, who nevertheless tried to shout out one last question. He added "You released a doctored video - actual fake news".

The manipulated video was tweeted by Sanders in defense of the White House's decision to revoke Acosta's press pass. Colbert believes that Sanders should face the consequences and step down from her role as press secretary. Phillip asked of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation. "What a stupid question, and I watch you a lot, and you ask a lot of stupid questions". One of those questions during the gaggle, however, he thought was "stupid". [President Trump's] personal insults are nothing new. "And never surprising", CNN said. "Who I've been and who I am is who you know. He gets paid to do that", Trump said.

"It's the same thing with April Ryan".

"Journalists may use a range of approaches to carry out their jobs and the WHCA does not police the tone or frequency of the questions its members ask of powerful senior government officials, including the President", the WHCA said. "This president seems not to like it, so therefore I'm 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.

The White House Correspondents' Association said it "strongly objects to the Trump administration's decision to use U.S. Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship". But he said there could be others.

"I think Jim Acosta is a very unprofessional man-he does this with everybody". This is a very special place.

In response, Sanders said the White House ban on Acosta's credentials would stand. "You have to treat the presidency with respect", he said.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, senior White House communications advisor Mercedes Schlapp insisted that the intern was "shaken up" and "intimidated" by Acosta and added "what we are seeing is bad behavior that can not be tolerated".
