That was a reference to the intern's efforts to wrest the microphone away from Acosta, which he successfully resisted, and Sanders' tweeted statement was accompanied by a video purporting to show the reporter aggressively swatting the intern's arm away.

Trump also had contentions exchanges with CNN political analyst April Ryan at the Wednesday presser, and on Friday he compared her to Acosta and said other reporters could have their passes revoked.

"The White House Correspondents' Association strongly objects to the Trump Administration's decision to use US Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship", the group said.

Much of this was based on a story from the Washington Post that called it "doctored" and one from the Associated Press which quoted an independent expert who also said it was doctored.

"When you're in the White House - this is a very sacred place to me".

But judge Jeremy Baker at London's High Court ruled there were not "substantial grounds" to believe she would leave the country. However, prosecutors appealed the decision, meaning she will remain in custody pending an appeal on November 8.

The president then moved to address the next questioner, NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander, who defended Acosta.

President Donald Trump was clearly still upset about the question April Ryan tried asking him during Wednesday's barn burner of a briefing, and he lashed out and called her a "loser" today.

"As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth", said Whitney Shefte, the association's president.

"If you've ever seen him dealing with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, it's a disgrace", Trump said of Acosta. But she is very nasty and she shouldn't be. "You have got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect".

Looking back at Acosta, who again rose up in his own defence, Trump added: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people".

Nelson's campaign has hired Marc Elias, a Democratic lawyer who regularly works issues of voter's rights and election protection. If the margin of victory is equal or less than 0.5 percent, state law requires a machine to recount the votes.

This development prompted Donald Trump to insist that the video was merely a close-up and "was not doctored". "All that is is a close-up".

"They gave a close up view".

Sanders noted that Trump took 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the lengthy press conference that lasted 90 minutes-the first one he's held since the midterm elections. He refused to respond to her question. [President Trump's] personal insults are nothing new.

In response, CNN said "this president's ongoing attacks on the press have gone too far", in a statement.

The topic has been one of the main headlines in Washington since Wednesday when Trump abruptly fired Jeff Sessions as attorney-general and named Matthew Whitaker, who has strongly criticised the Russian Federation probe, to replace him.
