Doctored video of CNN reporter's stoush with Trump goes viral

Trump attacks members of his own party and shouts at CNN’s Jim Acosta in wild press conference

"You are are a rude, awful person".

Trump's Press Secretary put out a video, which appears to be edited and sped up to show a chopping motion which doesn't seem to happen in the original video.

In a statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, "the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice".

CNN have since defended the reporter and praised others for standing up for themselves during the tense exchange.

Appearing on CNN on Wednesday evening, Acosta told host Anderson Cooper: " I was just trying to ask a question of the president.

"Then the president of the United States told him to sit down, and he refused, and he kept talking".

The video comes after Sanders went on a Twitter thread detailing why the White House was revoking Acosta's press pass, who has been a frequent target of criticism from President Donald Trump prior to yesterday's interaction.

A few hours later, Acosta announced on Twitter that he was denied access to the White House and his "hard pass" had been revoked.

CNN called the credential revocation an "unprecedented" move and "a threat to our democracy".

Whether Democrat challenger Richard Cordray can wrest the governorship away from opponent Mike DeWine - two-term Republican Gov. Trump took Air Force One from Indianapolis, where he held the second of two Friday rallies, to Belgrade in southwest Montana.

Acosta persisted. Trump repeated, "That's enough!" and attempted to call on another reporter, all the while becoming more impatient. Trump exhibited quite a bit of tolerance, at first, answering several of Acosta's questions despite his combative tone.

Jim Acosta is a joke and CNN should be ashamed of themselves.

On Thursday, Sanders tweeted a video purportedly backing up her version of the events.

Acosta, the chief White House correspondent for CNN, says he was stopped by the Secret Service when he tried to re-enter the White House.

After Acosta asked about the investigation of Russia's involvement in the 2016 election, Trump tried to turn to Alexander, but Acosta continued to ask questions.

"We urge the White House to immediately reverse this week and misguided action", the WHCA wrote. "To be honest. You aren't the best", he said.

Mr Trump replied: "I consider it an invasion".

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

"In the current climate, we hope President Trump will stop insulting and denigrating reporters and media outlets, it's making journalists feel unsafe", added Radsch.
