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

Looking back at Acosta, who again rose up in his own defence, Trump added: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".

In his press availability, Trump also went after April Ryan, a reporter for American Urban Radio Networks, as someone who did not show respect.

"He gets paid to do this", Mr. Trump said. I'd say "willingness to mislead" is the functional equivalent of a lie.

CNN Vice President of Communications and Digital Partnership Matt Dornic said it was "absolutely shameful" that Sanders had released a "doctored" video. "She shouldn't be", Trump said. "That's not doctoring", Trump said, also telling the press, "Nobody manipulated it, give me a break".

Despite the video's veracity being questioned, Sanders on Thursday reiterated that the administration will stand by its decision to revoke Acosta's hard pass.

My thoughts exactly. And anyone who accuses the White House of lying about Acosta putting his hands on her is blind or lying himself. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote on Twitter that the administration would "never tolerate" such behavior from a reporter, and that it had therefore revoked Acosta's press accreditation. The video proved otherwise. "Sanders lied", the network said in a statement. Trump said of the incident Friday that Acosta "was not nice to that young woman".

Acosta said in a tweet late on Wednesday he had been denied entry into the White House by the Secret Service. During the press conference, he told her to sit down because he hadn't called on her.

While Trump being nasty to reporters isn't new, there's something especially notable about Friday's insults: They were both targeted at African-American women journalists.

In response to a question about how long Acosta's press credentials will be suspended, Trump declared, "As far as I'm concerned, I haven't made that decision". "The White House should immediately reinstate Jim Acosta's press pass, and refrain from punishing reporters by revoking their access - that's not how a free press works".

Instead of answering the question, Trump said, "What a stupid question you asked". I watch her get up-I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser.

CNN's Dana Bash tweeted this reaction: "Harvard University will be surprised to hear POTUS call one of their graduates - my friend and colleague Abby Phillip - stupid". But many on social media pointed out that Trump has a history of questioning black people's intelligence. "He apparently wants to goad Donald Trump into a confrontation". "To be honest. You aren't the best", he hit back.
