"Yes, the White House press office is sharing a manipulated video that makes it appear that Acosta was menacing the intern when he was not and did not".

"Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN", the president said, resulting in the intern attempting to retrieve the microphone. CNN's Acosta is no Cronkite.

"Contrary to CNN's assertions, there is no greater demonstration of the President's support for a free press than the event he held today", Sanders continued. "I'm telling you what the law is".

Trump began taking questions and called on Acosta, who tried to ask about the president's characterization of a migrant caravan of roughly 4,000 Central American immigrants who are walking through Mexico to claim asylum in the U.S.

Mr Watson posted his defence on Twitter, saying: "Here's the video that proves I did not "doctor" or "speed up" the Acosta video, as some media outlets claim. Secret Service just informed me I can not enter the grounds for my 8 pm hit", Acosta tweeted Wednesday evening.

The heated exchange began after Acosta clung to the microphone and persisted with questions about the president's repeated and angry denunciation of a caravan of poor Central American migrants making their way through Mexico to the United States border. "But they have to come in legally".

A staff member tried to take his microphone during the exchange.

In the incident, President Trump engaged with Acosta and then said he had enough of his questions before a young woman walked over to take the microphone away. Trump became frustrated with Acosta's antics.

Earlier in the day Trump called Acosta "a rude, bad person" as he tried to ask the president a question.

In a statement Wednesday night, CNN said that Sanders "provided fraudulent accusations and cited an incident that never happened".

Video used by White House officials to justify revoking the credentials of a CNN reporter was altered before it was shared with the public, an analysis of the video by social media verification service Storyful reveals. Apparently, to some on the Left, the aide is the one who committed assault and battery.

The Hill reports that Hostin's remarks sparked "outcry from fellow hosts, particularly Meghan McCain, who said Hostin's view meant that the aide 'should be arrested for battery.' She added she was speaking facetiously". "You should be fired immediately".

"That's just the law", Ms. Hostin replied.
