Trump Demands Journos to Respect White House After Revoking Acosta's Press Pass

The White House could revoke more media passes, President Donald Trump suggested Friday during a news conference. "I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice". Trump said Ryan was "nasty" as well as a "loser" that "doesn't know what she's doing".

Sanders hasn't said where the video she posted comes from.

"No one manipulated it - give me a break", Trump said.

As for Acosta, CNN sent him to Paris to cover Trump's visit to France to make the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. The trip follows Tuesday's mid-term elections, which ended with Democrats taking power in the House of Representatives and Republicans keeping the majority in the Senate. Why might other journalists in the room react that way, and why did Fox News's Chris Wallace say that Acosta had "embarrassed himself" on Wednesday? The video proved otherwise.

Cooper offered no pushback on Acosta's blatant lie.

"It wasn't doctored... they gave a close-up view", Trump told reporters on November 9. She's the White House press secretary!

CNN has been working behind the scenes on a resolution that would restore Acosta's pass.

Acosta's credentials were revoked on Thursday after a tense press conference on Wednesday, in which Trump dodged questions and lashed out at several journalists.

And CNN has slammed the White House for its actions.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration". Her question was about the widespread concerns that Trump's rhetoric emboldens white nationalists. The news outlet was under fire for a series of reports on the alleged Trump-Russia ties.

After Friday morning's Q&A session, Ryan called into CNN and said she shook off his insults.

"I mean, you know, 'loser, ' 'stupid, ' I mean, this president- he has disparaged African-Americans in particular in ways that are deep".
