She said that "on the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist".

"Just sit down", Trump said.

On Kelly's first day on the job as chief of staff, Trump directed him to fire Scaramucci, who had been a White House aide for a mere 10 days, because of obscene comments he made in an interview with the New Yorker.

Acosta and Trump have sparred numerous times, with neither man hiding their contempt for each other.

But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted out a particular video, which apparently had been doctored to appear worse - showing Acosta swatting away the intern when she tried to take his microphone away. The video proved otherwise.

Trump responded the the allegations Friday, saying, "It wasn't doctored".

"As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth", said Whitney Shefte, the association's president.

Acosta's press pass was revoked after he had an exchange with Trump during a press conference on November 7 and refused to surrender his mic to an intern, blocking her with his arm.

While speaking to reporters on Friday, Trump called Acosta "very unprofessional" and decried the way he treated Sanders during press briefings.

O'Reilly said Acosta interjected an accusatory tone and his own opinions in questioning the president in an attempt to make the president look bad. The clip was initially shared by InfoWars' Paul Joseph Watson and then picked up by the White House.

But in effect, the White House is trying to veto Acosta. "But they have to come in legally".

The president also said, "CNN should be ashamed of itself [for] having you working for them". He quickly lashed out at CNN's Abby Phillip when she asked if the new interim Attorney General would try to rein in Robert Mueller's investigation. I watch her get up-I mean, you talk about somebody that's a loser. He's also had unkind things to say about women and people who are African-American. The president has a long history of insulting the intelligence of women and people of color. Trump reacted to the book by calling her a "dog" on Twitter.

A few moments later, Alcindor asked Trump about his recent characterization of himself as "a nationalist" and whether that label was "emboldening white nationalists".

"There are embarrassingly few black and hispanic reporters in the WH press corps and four have been personally insulted by the President this week", he wrote.

Donald Trump is not backing down from personal attacks on reporters. "That's not doctoring", Trump later said.
