White House revokes CNN reporter's press pass after clash with Trump

White House revokes CNN reporter's press pass after clash with Trump

The CNN reporter had his press pass revoked by the White House Wednesday after he asked multiple questions during a press conference and refused to give the microphone back to a female aide who was trying to retrieve it from him. "I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice", Trump said.

"The fact that the White House Press Secretary is promoting this doctored video is reprehensible and grounds for dismissal - or, as they call it in the Trump administration, Thursday", Colbert said on The Late Show. In the meantime, Acosta has continued to report without physical access to the White House grounds; he is now in Paris to cover Trump's trip to France.

Acosta asked Trump if he thought he had "demonized" migrants by calling the group an "invasion". He expressed annoyance at the types of questions that are asked, the way that they are asked, and what reporters have said about him, i.e. their type of coverage. "CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you work for them", he said.

Trump claims reporters aren't "treating the office of the president with respect". A White House staffer attempted to grab the mic from the reporter, but he easily fended her off.

Elisabeth Bumiller, the Washington bureau chief for the New York Times, said, "The president should not pick and choose who covers him, and he should certainly not force out a representative of one of the country's leading news organizations, one that tens of millions of Americans depend on for their news".

Sanders, who hasn't said where the tweeted video came from, noted that it clearly shows Acosta made contact with the intern.

Earlier this week Trump snapped at another African American woman, Yamiche Alcindor of PBS, and accused her of asking a "racist question".




"When I stood up, in his response, he tells me to 'sit down, ' in a condescending, very ugly matter", Ryan said.

Trump has frequently attacked the media, including during his presidential campaign.

It happens just like in the White House's version, but Acosta's hand doesn't seem to linger as long on the woman's arm and the movement appears significantly faster.

Other social media users are sharing one of Mr Trump's tweets from 2013 where he criticises the "intimidation of its reporters".

The president on Friday also called Acosta unprofessional and unintelligent. "She doesn't know what the hell she is doing".

"I mean, she intentionally disseminated doctored video footage to discredit a reputable journalist", Kimmel stated. "He's a very unprofessional guy", Trump said. "Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately because you can see for yourself what it is, perception is reality with this president".
