Twitter Is Rallying Behind Black Female Journalists After Trump's 'Loser' Comment

President Donald Trump speaks to CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference in the East Room of the White House

President Trump on Friday called journalist Jim Acosta "a very unprofessional man", and he suggested that the White House could suspend other journalists in addition to the CNN reporter for disrespecting the presidency.

In response, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders distributed a video which she claims shows Acosta pushing a female White House intern as she attempts to take the microphone from Acosta.

At the earlier news conference Mr Trump, when asked by Mr Acosta if he had "demonised immigrants" during the midterms campaign, replied: "No, I want them to come into the country". The tense exchange between President Trump and Acosta is hard and embarrassing to watch-not because the video has been "doctored" as some are now claiming but because both men demonstrate utter contempt and disrespect for their respective roles as they shamelessly peacock for ratings. The White House on Wednesday suspended the media pass for Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent.

Trump also told April Ryan of the Urban National Radio Network to "sit down" and wait her turn.

The president said that the bad blood between him and the media was the fault of journalists showing insufficient deference.

Looking back at Mr Acosta, who again rose up in his own defense, Mr Trump added: "When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people". She knows it. These are dark times and not only because of the pack of lying liars in charge. He refused to respond to her question.

CNN has labeled Sanders' characterization of Acosta's exchange with the intern as a lie.

Despite losing his White House pass, Acosta traveled to Paris this weekend to cover Trump's trip to meet with world leaders.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, senior White House communications advisor Mercedes Schlapp insisted that the intern was "shaken up" and "intimidated" by Acosta and added "what we are seeing is bad behavior that can not be tolerated".

CNN released its own statement about reporter, Phillip stating that she did not "ask a "stupid" question today at the White House". "He gets paid to do that", Trump said.

"Well I'm not a big fan of yours either", Trump said. I watch her get up-I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser.

The White House is standing its ground, and, in a statement on Thursday, Sanders said that she stands by her previous position.

On Friday, Trump said of Acosta, "He was not nice to that young woman". "She intentionally disseminated doctored video footage to discredit a reputable journalist".
