Trump also berated another CNN reporter, Abby Phillip, for asking what he called a "stupid question".

During the gaggle in front of the White House, Trump continued to criticize reporters and went after another reporter of color.

"What a stupid question that is", Trump said. Later, via Twitter, she said that she has interviewed white nationalists who say they are more excited by Trump than they have been about other presidents.

Mr Trump, speaking yesterday, stood by the decision to suspend Mr Acosta's press pass, which allows the correspondent access to the White House. CNN, she said, was irresponsible to suggest the president was to blame for a pipe bomb sent to the outlet in October. "You've got to treat the White House and the presidency with respect". Paul Joseph Watson, an editor-at-large for InfoWars, says the video was not doctored, but was made from a GIF, which he claims explains the anomalies. "But because of all the conflicts, they didn't want to bring him before the Senate".

The attacks on the three women left Sarah Glover, the president of the National Association of Black Journalists, shaking her head.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration".

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin spoke out on Friday for American Urban Radio Networks' April Ryan, CNN's Abby Phillip, and PBS News Hour's Yamiche Alcindor, calling them "consummate professionals, A-grade". To some media observers, Trump's reactions echoed reports that Trump has previously mocked the accent of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi or mimicked the style of Asian trade negotiators.

"I think journalism in general doesn't adapt to politics", he said.

Acosta asked very few actual questions during his exchange with Trump.

Phillip and Ryan are two of a small number of African American women who cover the White House.

"I consider it an invasion, you and I have a difference of an opinion", Trump responded.

She added, "He's not apparently built for this".

Critics say the additions are meant to undercut the person's entire character, value and intelligence, not just their professional conduct. "That's not doctoring", Trump said, also telling the press, "Nobody manipulated it, give me a break".

Acosta's antics were unprecedented at a presidential news conference.

He called Ryan "a loser" who "doesn't know what the hell she's doing". Rather, he said he saw him holding on to the microphone as she reached for it.

In Canada, where reporters don't get routine access to the Prime Minister's Office, media credentials to access Parliament Hill - more akin to the U.S. Congress than the White House - are managed by the parliamentary press gallery, not the PMO.

Acosta, meanwhile, is in Paris, where Trump will be landing later on Friday.
