"They gave a close up view".

"Secretary Sanders lied", CNN said in a statement, saying the press pass suspension was "done in retaliation for challenging questions".

But the White House maintains that Mr Acosta was in the wrong, with Ms Sanders tweeting that his actions were "absolutely unacceptable".

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

The CNN reporter began his question to the president by saying he wanted to "challenge" him on his decision to call the latest Central American migrant caravan traveling to the USA up through Mexico an "invasion". "They showed it close up", Trump said when asked about the video. You shouldn't be working for CNN ... "In fact, she asked the most pertinent question of the day", CNN said. [President Trump's] personal insults are nothing new.

CNN claims that this "never happened".

The attack on Ryan was unprovoked, although the president had appeared upset at Wednesday's news conference when Ryan stood up and asked him, without a microphone, about voter suppression in the midterm elections. "Sarah Huckabee Sanders should be fired and sent to live in a Joanne's Fabric store for all the rest of her days", said Kimmel. He gets paid to burst in.

"I came in here as a nice person wanting to answer questions, and I had people jumping out of their seats screaming questions at me", said Trump, who talked for almost 90 minutes despite the run-ins with reporters.

"Contrary to CNN's assertions there is no greater demonstration of the President's support for a free press than the event he held today", Ms Sanders said. "Surely", he wrote, "we must realize that if it works with CNN, this will just be the first time, and not the last". During their verbal altercation on Wednesday, Trump called Acosta a "terrible person".

"The question is: Did the reporter make contact or not?"

The president complained that the media did not cover the humming economy and was responsible for much of the country's divided politics.

During a morning media availability, a reporter asked Trump how long he was going to leave CNN reporter Jim Acosta in the "penalty box".

At Friday's Q&A session, Trump also had sharp words for CNN White House correspondent Abby Phillip. "This is a very special place".

In a Thursday afternoon statement, Whitney Shefte, president of the White House News Photographers Association, said, "As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth. You have got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect".

Some say video shared by press secretary Sarah Sanders on Twitter as justification for revoking Acosta's pass appeared to have been slightly altered when compared the original footage as posted by other news organizations.

"Look, I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice", Trump said, adding that "it could be others" whose press passes he might revoke.
