Keller @ Large: Fallout From Acosta-Trump Confrontation

President Donald Trump speaks to CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference at the White House on Nov. 7 2018 in Washington

President Donald Trump on Friday defended the decision to suspend CNN reporter Jim Acosta's White House press pass, saying Acosta is "unprofessional" and not a "smart person".

"You are a rude awful person, you should not be working for CNN", Trump said, further baselessly accusing him of reporting "fake news" and calling him an "enemy of the people".

U.S. President Donald Trump claimed on Friday that a White House-released video depicting contact between a staffer and a CNN reporter wasn't altered, and he seemingly threatened to revoke the White House press credentials of more reporters.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has been accused of "doctoring" the footage of the incident between CNN's Jim Acosta, who has had his White House pass revoked, and a female intern.

The White House Correspondents' Association released a statement Wednesday saying 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".

Mr Acosta asked the president about his reference to migrants travelling towards America as an "invasion". Instead, Acosta continued with a second question about the Russian investigation, which Trump shrugged off with another curt answer.

"The same thing with April Ryan, I watch her get up, I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser, she doesn't know what the hell she's doing", Trump said.

"You've got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect".

Trump told Ryan, of American Urban Radio Networks, repeatedly to sit down when she attempted to ask Trump about accusations of voter suppression.

The president said that the bad blood between him and the media was the fault of journalists showing insufficient deference.

NABJ President Sarah Glover called them among the "finest reporters covering the White House".

"It could be others also", he said.

School buses have been corralled at the Lowes Foods parking lot across from the school campus . The county school system notified parents of a reported active shooter in a tweet.


CNN said in a statement that Acosta has the network's full support.

"What a stupid question that is", Trump replied.

Despite losing his White House pass, Acosta travelled to Paris this weekend to cover Trump's trip to meet with world leaders. They insist on taking everything the man says hyper-literally and then critically analyze every goofy, bombastic, hyperbolic, or sarcastic Trump utterance or tweet. "And the way you treat other people is awful".

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. Trump's insults "are nothing new".

Mr Acosta is seen trying to keep hold of the microphone while Trump's aide makes three unsuccessful attempts to take it from him.
