Trump lashes out at reporter in fiery exchange

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference in the East Room at the White House in Washington Wednesday Nov. 7 2018

"I don't think he's a smart person but he has a loud voice", Trump told reporters in a testy 20-plus-minute exchange before he left for Paris and a World War I commemoration ceremony.

The president and the reporter sparred at a press briefing Wednesday, culminating with a White House intern trying to pull the microphone away from Mr Acosta.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a clearly-doctored video to falsely accuse CNN reporter Jim Acosta of "inappropriate behavior" and "placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern".

The president also ridiculed CNN White House correspondent Abby Phillip who asked Trump if he wants acting attorney general Matt Whitaker to "rein in" special counsel Robert Mueller.

When Acosta challenged the president on his use of the word "invasion" to describe a caravan of mainly Honduran migrants and asylum seekers heading to the USA border, Trump launched an attack on the CNN journalist, as an aide tried to physically remove the microphone from Acosta's hands.

"CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them", Trump said. Reporters must treat the White House and the presidency with respect, according to Trump.

Ryan said in a tweet that she has "the most respect for the Office of the President" but will "continue to ask the questions that affect America, all of America".

She said his press pass was being suspended "until further notice".

A 20-year veteran of the White House beat, Ryan pointed out that each president before Trump "understood that reporters were part of the underpinnings of this nation".

Acosta, on Twitter, denied Sanders' comment and said he and CNN "won't back down" after the ban. Trump on Wednesday accused Alcindor of asking a racist question when she inquired about the president receiving support from some white nationalists.

Illegal border crossers now ineligible for asylum, White House says
The new rule only applies to classes of migrants targeted in the upcoming presidential proclamation and is not retroactive. The announcement said the president had the authority to impose "any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate".

Meanwhile, the second features one continuous screen on the exterior. "We rethought the anatomy of a smartphone display". The South Korean tech giant is among a handful of firms that have flagged foldable phones as a coming to market soon.

MI voters legalize recreational marijuana
With Michigan voting to legalize adult use, neighbors like OH and IL could soon follow suit to help build a market in that region. Voters in MI voted for Proposal 1 , which legalizes recreational marijuana and regulates it like alcohol.

He continued, "When you're in the White House, this is a very sacred place to me". "In fact, she asked the most pertinent question of the day", CNN said. The way you treat other people is disgusting.

Trump didn't say what he means by "respect" - but by the end of the press availability, it was pretty clear that it was for reasons other than security.

Donald Trump lies. He knows it. Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeats his lies.

"What a stupid question you asked", Trump replied.

Mr Acosta's press pass was later cancelled amid accusations that he "placed his hands" on the intern.

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.

Conway said Acosta should not have swiped at the White House aide before "grabbing the microphone back".

Trump didn't like the question, but reporters from competing networks defended Phillip's inquiry.

And CNN has slammed the White House for its actions.
