"It wasn't doctored", the president said.

"They gave a close up view".

As John Sexton Hot Air points out, the virtually indecipherable difference seen in a side by side comparison of the so-called "doctored" tape and the original video is likely "the result of frame rate adjustment that happens whenever a video is converted from one format to another".

CNN called the White House's description of the incident a lie. Trump announced the news on Twitter, writing: "We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States". Phillip asked of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation. "But I watch you a lot, and you ask a lot of stupid questions".

"What a stupid question that is. The video is clear, he did", the statement said.

Richard Tofel, the president of ProPublica, tweeted on Friday morning, "What is the plan for when Trump concocts an excuse for vetoing a reporter" from the New York Times or Washington Post? "This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better", CNN said.

"You talk about somebody that's a loser, she doesn't know what the hell she's doing", Trump said. Wait. You know why we need the people?

"I think Jim Acosta is a very unprofessional man".

Trump also criticized CNN contributor April Ryan. Her question was about the widespread concerns that Trump's rhetoric emboldens white nationalists. "This president seems not to like it, so therefore I'm a loser". The newspaper said that if Sanders was so offended by physical contact, "what did she have to say when her boss praised as "my kind of guy" Rep. Greg Gianforte of Montana, who was sentenced to anger management classes and community service for body-slamming a Guardian reporter last spring?" Trump on Wednesday accused Alcindor of asking a racist question when she inquired about the president receiving support from some white nationalists.

The White House Correspondents Association also condemned the action to revoke Acosta's credentials. But he said there could be others.

CNN has defended Acosta and assailed the White House for taking his credential. This is a very special place.

"But that is not the job of White House reporters".

The events that led on Wednesday to the White House barring CNN correspondent Jim Acosta are a sad commentary on our national dialogue.

In between the two questions, Trump attempted to move on, but Acosta refused. He tweeted a photo of himself standing in front of the Eiffel Tower early Friday.
