Trump goes on CNN & # 39; s & # 39; very nasty … loser & # 39; April Ryan after he had smashed Jim Acosta & # 39; s credentials
President Donald Trump said Friday that he has not decided how long CNN correspondent Jim Acosta will be banned from the White House and threatens to withdraw the credentials of other journalists thereafter.
He also reached out to April Ryan, a CNN commentator who also serves as a White House reporter with a network of black radio stations.
The president told DailyMail.com about the South Lawn when he left for France that Acosta, who often kills him and his press secretary publicly, is a very unprofessional man & # 39 ;.
He named Ryan & # 39; a loser & # 39; who & # 39; does not know what she's doing damn & # 39 ;.
Acosta was in a screaming match with Trump during a press conference on Wednesday, and lost his access card for what the White House said was to abandon a trainee who was trying to remove a microphone from him.
& # 39; He is paid for doing that. You know, he's being paid to come in. He is a very unprofessional guest, "Trump said, adding that & # 39; I do not think he is a smart person, but he has a loud voice. & # 39;
& # 39; I have not taken that decision & # 39; about the fate of Acosta, he said, & # 39; but it can also be others & # 39; they have been banned.

Acosta saw his press conferences be withdrawn Wednesday after he collided with a trainee via a microphone at the press conference
April Ryan, a CNN media personality, raised questions about what some see as voter suppression & # 39; of blacks, but Trump had not called her and called her "rude & # 39; because she had given someone else a turn
& # 39; If you are in the White House, this is a very sacred place to be. This is a very special place. You must treat the White House with respect. You must treat the presidency with respect, "he said.
Trump complained that Acosta's interactions with press secretary Sarah Huckabee often & # 39; a shame & # 39; to be.
& # 39; Same with April Ryan, & # 39; he continued. & # 39; I see her get up. I mean, you talk about someone who is a loser. She does not know what she's fucking doing. She gets publicity and then gets a pay raise or she gets a contract with, I think, CNN. But she is very dirty. And she should not be that. & # 39;
Ryan interrupted Trump during the Wednesday press conference and blurted out questions without calling on. She followed the same approach at Sanders & # 39; press conferences with some success, which forced her questions – mostly about the politics of the breed – into public view.
She went on CNN via phone call within minutes of Trump's departure and claimed that & # 39; something is not right & # 39; in the White House.
& # 39; Those words are awful from a sitting president of the United States, & # 39; she said, after she Trump her a & # 39; loser & # 39; had mentioned.
The president said Friday, in response to a question from DailyMail.com about Jim Acosta, that April Ryan is a loser & # 39; is that & # 39; not know what she's doing on behalf of & # 39; in her job
Sanders refused to return Thursday from Trump's decision to revoke Acosta's press card, while insisting on occasional physical contact with a female trainee during a heated presidential press conference was enough to ban him.
Acosta was without access to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue after a tense shout with President Donald Trump and a near-wrestle over the White House microphone while pushing the trainee's arm away.
Faced with harsh questions from the rest of the news agency, Sanders issued a concise statement: "The question is: has the reporter made contact or not?" The video is clear, he did it, and we stick to our statement. ;
That video, a short C-SPAN clip that went around Wednesday night, caused a new outcry in the evening when Sanders tweeted a modified version that was first distributed by an editor of the right-wing & # 39; InfoWars & # 39; -complottheoreticuswebsite.
Sarah Sanders has shared a re-cut video on Twitter, showing the moment when Acosta clashed with one of her trainees. The video was originally posted by an InfoWars Host; that has opened her to criticism of the changes of the images
Sanders was presented Wednesday at the East Room of the White House at the press conference where Acosta got caught up in Trump and later was banned from the building
CNN media critic Brian Stelter pushed her on Twitter: & # 39; InfoWars personality @PrisonPlanet posted the same video two hours before you posted it. You do not trust InfoWars …? & # 39;
The digital forensic expert at Dartmouth College, Hany Farid, told the Motherboard Tech website that the images themselves were not edited, but the video was slowed and zoomed to focus on a single moment.
The question is: has the reporter made contact or not? The video is clear, he did it. We keep our declaration.
– Secretary-General Sarah Huckabee Sanders of the White House
I believe that the video tweeted by the press secretary is misleading, but I do not see any unambiguous evidence that it was mastered, & # 39; said Farid.
He also suggested that the viewpoint of the C-SPAN camera gives the appearance that there was more contact between the reporter and the trainee than was probably the case. & # 39;
& # 39; Especially if you watch original video's of a higher quality from other viewpoints, you can see more clearly that although there was some contact between the reporter and the trainee, he did not hit her when his hand came down. & # 39;
The video that Snader tweeted seems to speed up and zoom in at the time of contact.
Acosta struggled with a non-named trainee from the White House who tried to grab the microphone of the White House on Wednesday after the president had decided that he had finished answering CNN's questions.
Acosta's supporters urged people to watch a video of the interaction, claiming that the White House press, Sarah Sanders, was wrong to say that he & # 39; his hands & # 39; had placed on the female trainee; the video shows the trainee reaching for the microphone and Acosta's left hand pushes her left arm down while handling him

Kellyanne Conway said Thursday morning that the White House was right to cancel the press references of Acosta and to include his physical contact with the trainee as a men-to-woman threat.
In a & # 39; Fox & Friends & # 39; interview Conway described it as & # 39; a rough moment for the young assistant & # 39; and cast Acosta like a chauvinistic villain because the young woman could not take back the microphone after President Donald Trump said he had finished answering the reporter questions.
"The NBC reporter was already at the ready to ask his question, and she just did her job, namely reclaiming the microphone belonging to the federal government," Conway said.
Of course, I do not think anyone should have – especially a young woman – should have someone who wipes them away and takes the microphone back. & # 39;
During a Fox Business Network gig on Wednesday night, she filed the controversy as a # MeToo moment.
& # 39; You do not put your hands on a woman. I think we all had to hear that in a different context recently, and I'm not sure that he has offered his apologies to that young woman, but she certainly owes one, "said Conway.
Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, said Thursday that the White House was right to cancel a CNN reporter's press card after a short and occasional physical confrontation over a microphone during a presidential press conference
Conway described the incident as a man-to-woman moment and related it to threats that she and other pro-Trump women have faced
Thursday, she has redefined the moment and reissued millions of times on social media videos, as part of a culture of intimidation that Trump assistants regularly deal with.
She blamed the Democrats and the media for a red-hot tone & # 39; that some female Trump donors have placed in dangerous positions.
& # 39; I am physically touched by people. There is a call to me, my children are threatened, "she said.
Tucker Carlson … showed a gang last night in his house. His wife was hiding in a pantry! & # 39;
& # 39; Let's talk about glowing rhetoric, & # 39; she said. "I stand here on my four-inch high heels all day long and talk about it if you want it, but I will not throw it as one-sided and the president's fault. & # 39;
Conway did not mention Acosta by name, but suggested a contrast between journalists who try to do their work by getting the story & # 39; and others who & # 39; try to get the president & # 39 ;.
"Some people like to stand up and take part in the story," she complained and claimed that other correspondents secretly agreed with her: "Maybe they do not come forward and say that, but they say that. & # 39;
Acosta tweeted Thursday morning: & # 39; Believe the lies that come from the WH. Believe in our freedoms. Thank you all for your support. We will not fall back. & # 39;
Acosta made a hasty cell phone video from a uniformed secret service officer who denied him access to the White House and retracted his press card on Wednesday night
President Donald Trump and Acosta went back and forth in a heated verbal press during the press conference after the Wednesday election
Marco Rubio, the Republican Senate of Florida, responded by shocking him on Twitter, even when he suggested that the White House reacted excessively.
& # 39; I do not think they should revoke his WH pass. Revoking access to the press because it is rude is a very slippery slope, "Rubio wrote.
& # 39; But the WH pass is to beat the news, not to make the news yourself. This tweet and his behavior is what you expect from an activist and not from a journalist. & # 39;
CNN has cast the White House's response as an all-embracing attack on the First Amendment.
Conway pointed out that Trump & # 39; on Wednesday asked 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of 90 minutes & # 39; answered. & # 39; That's pro-press, that's transparent, that's responsibility.
A uniformed secret service officer denied Acosta access to the White House premises on Wednesday night and refused his "hard pass", the long-term feature issued to regular members of the White House news agency.
Acosta's tense exchange with Trump was not the first; the president has publicly beaten him before and is considering a lot of what CNN & # 39; fake news & # 39; radiates
Sanders stunned Washington by announcing Wednesday that Acosta was persona non grata on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue; CNN can still send other reporters to cover the White House
& # 39; I have just refused access to the WH. The secret service just let me know that I can not enter the WH-ground for my 20-hour hit, & # 39; Acosta tweeted before he shared a message cell phone video from the officer who is taking his pass.
In a statement, Sarah Sanders, Secretary of the White House, said that the hard card from Acosta & # 39; until further notice & # 39; was suspended.
Acosta appeared on & # 39; Anderson Cooper 360 & # 39; and called the stress & # 39; a test for all of us. I really think they are trying to close us to some extent. & # 39;
He also insisted that the press secretary of the White House, Sarah Sanders, was wrong to claim that he was captured by video in a young woman who was just trying to do her work. do & # 39 ;.
"The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employees behaved is not only disgusting, it is also an example of their excessive contempt for everyone, including young women, who work in this administration. Sanders in a statement on Wednesday evening.
Acosta tweeted that her claim is a lie & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; I have not put my hands on her or touched her as they claim. It is a pity that the White House says this … I think I treated myself professionally, "Acosta told Cooper.
& # 39; Put the microphone down, & # 39; Trump told Acosta, while the female trainee (left) tried to get him back
CNN accused Sanders of an open statement about the nature of the confrontation between Acosta and the unnamed female trainee.
& # 39; They provided fraudulent accusations and mentioned an incident that never happened & # 39 ;, said the network. This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves it better. Jim Acosta has our full support. & # 39;
The Association of correspondents of the White House has issued a statement in which the Trump administration is convicted for confiscating the hard card of Acosta.
& # 39; Withdrawing access to the White House complex is a reaction that does not conform to the alleged violation and is unacceptable, "said the group. We urge the White House to immediately reverse this weak and misguided action. & # 39;
We encourage everyone with doubts that this response was disproportionate to the perceived crime to watch the video of the events of earlier today. & # 39;
The outrageous match of Acosta with Trump came when he asked the president a long question about the Central American migrant caravan, arguing that Trump did not 'invade & # 39; would have mentioned.
& # 39; That's enough! & # 39; Trump droned when Acosta tried to turn for a question about the Russian investigation of Special Counsel Robret Mueller.
CNN should be ashamed if you work for them. You are a rude, fearful person. You should not work for CNN, "the president told Acosta when the trainee tried to reclaim the microphone.
When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people, he told him, later on quipping: & # 39; I think you let me run the country and run CNN . If you did well, your score would be much better. & # 39;
NBC correspondent Peter Alexander received the following question, and jumped to plead for Acosta after the overwhelming exchange.
In Jim & # 39; s defense I traveled with him and looked at him. He is an industrious reporter who breaks his ass, "Alexander said.
Well, I am not a fan of you either, & # 39; Trump replied. & # 39; You are not the best. & # 39;
