"That press conference was upsetting to watch, but not as upsetting as it was for this woman", Bee said, before playing footage of a White House aide attempting to wrestle the microphone out of Acosta's hand.

Earlier a visibly angry Trump had branded Acosta an "enemy of the people" on national television, after the CNN White House correspondent refused the president's orders to sit down and give up the microphone during a press conference one day after the United States midterm vote. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable.

Acosta began by challenging Trump's assertion that a caravan of Central American migrants making its way on foot through Mexico to the USA border represented an "invasion".

Sanders, who has not said where the tweeted video came from, said it clearly shows Acosta made contact with the intern.

"This is a lie", Acosta tweeted in response to her statement.

The exchange btween the president and Acosta quickly grew heated, with the president telling Acosta, "you let me run the country, and you can run CNN". You are a rude, awful person.

She added that Acosta's pass was suspended until further notice.

The Harry Potter author took to Twitter on Thursday to respond to a tweet from Sarah Huckabee Sanders in which the White House press secretary defended the decision to revoke Acosta's press pass.

The White House Correspondents' Association released a statement Wednesday saying it "strongly objects to the Trump Administration's decision to use U.S. Secret Service security credentials as a tool to punish a reporter with whom it has a hard relationship".

As the reporter moved on to the Russian Federation investigation, the President seemd frustrated, ordering the Mr Acosta to stop.

"Some say the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists", she continued.

What happened at the earlier press conference?

"You and I have a difference of opinion", he said. As the Joker put it in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight: "I don't wanna kill you".

"I was seated next to ⁦Acosta⁩ at today's press conference and did not witness him "placing his hands" on the young intern, as the White House alleges", Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason wrote on Twitter.

Joy Behar said she seconded a theory saying Trump set up the altercation to distract from more pressing matters, like the co-called caravan and Democrats taking over the House of Representatives.

"The irony of this White House video involving Jim Acosta is that if it is found to be doctored, it will show the administration to be doing what it accuses the news media of doing - engaging in fake information", said Aly Colon, a professor in journalism ethics at Washington & Lee University.
