The White House has suspended the press pass of CNN correspondent Jim Acosta after he and President Donald Trump had a heated confrontation during a news conference. "I don't think he's a smart person but he has a loud voice", Mr Trump told reporters in a testy 20-plus-minute exchange before he left for Paris and a First World War commemoration ceremony.
Acosta had been holding the microphone, trying to ask a follow-up question, while the president was calling on a different reporter. Interesting sentence in wire service account:
While the origin of the manipulated video is unclear, its distribution marked a new low for an administration that has been criticized for its willingness to mislead.
"He did. We stand by our statement", Sanders said.
Trump laid into Acosta - CNN's chief White House correspondent - after the veteran journalist challenged him on Russian Federation.

Said Acosta: "I was just trying to ask a question of the president at this press conference and it was obviously a question they didn't like".
