President Trump says more White House reporters could have credentials revoked

"We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern", explained White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders via Twitter. "You may be ahead of me", Stelter replied.

The Storyful report also says: "The video shared by Sanders appeared under an hour after the same video, with the same close-up, was posted by contributor Paul Joseph Watson". "We have reached out to the White House and have gotten no response", the spokesperson added.

"CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them", the president said to Acosta.

Olivier Knox, president of the White House Correspondents Association, said his organization's board met Thursday with Sanders and White House communications director Bill Shine for what it expected to be a series of conversations about Acosta's status.

The possible lawsuit comes amid increasingly heated tensions between Trump and the press. It began on Wednesday when President Trump delivered a lengthy press conference after the 2018 elections. Abrams referred to a case in which the White House revoked credentials in the 1970s.

In the above video, Shapiro walks frame by frame through the AP's unaltered clip of the incident and the clip of the incident that the White House circulated. "We will not tolerate the inappropriate behavior clearly documented in this video", Ms. Sanders had tweeted along with a video of the incident nearly three hours after she announced the decision to suspend Mr. Acosta's pass. He said that "I can do something fantastic, and they make it look not good".

On Wednesday, Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign.

Abby Phillip, another CNN reporter, was told her question was "stupid" and the president refused to answer.

New York Times reporter Jim Rutenberg wrote in his article, "Should the Press Boycott Trump?"

Waving his finger, Mr Trump berated him. "You shouldn't be working for CNN", he said.

"The question is: did the reporter make contact or not?" Trump interrupted her, calling it a racist question.

Mar 5, 2018. Earlier this year, Acosta complained that Sanders didn't give him enough opportunities to ask questions.
