  • U.S. President Donald Trump gets into a heated exchange with CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta as NBC correspondent Peter Alexander looks on during a post-election press conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington DC on Nove

That's a good description of Wednesday's testy encounter between CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta and President Trump, which started with Acosta challenging the president's claim that the refugee migrant march toward the U.S. border amounted to a risky "invasion". Mr. Acosta has called the accusation a lie.

A video distributed by the Trump administration to support its argument for banning CNN reporter Jim Acosta from the White House appears to have been doctored to make Acosta look more aggressive than he was during an exchange with a White House intern, an independent expert said Thursday.

President Donald Trump is claiming that a video the White House released depicting contact between a White House staffer and a CNN reporter wasn't altered. Trump had called the reporter a "rude and awful person" after Acosta shot several questions at him during a post midterm election press conference.

The Lion Air investigation comes after Indonesia's government ordered an inspection of all Boeing 737 Max 8 planes in the country. Southwest had 23 737 Max 8 in its fleet as of September 30, with nine more to be delivered by the end of the year.

In his weekly column, published to his website Wednesday, before the White House announced action against the reporter, O'Reilly concluded that "the Trump administration would be in the right if it pulled Acosta's credentials".

Despite losing his White House pass, Acosta travelled to Paris this weekend to cover Trump's trip to meet with world leaders. "We urge the White House to immediately reverse this weak and misguided action". During their verbal altercation on Wednesday, Trump called Acosta a "terrible person".

"Jim Acosta clearly never touched that White House intern". "In fact, she asked the most pertinent question of the day", CNN said. "And I think the White House finally got fed up with him using his perch at the White House to give personal opinions", Fleischer concluded. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question.

"I will continue to ask the questions that affect America, all of America". Trump's insults "are nothing new".

Regarding how long Acosta will be suspended, Trump said that "as far as I'm concerned, I haven't made that decision".
