Toobin says 'racial dimension' to Trump's attacks on black female journalists

President Donald Trump speaks to CNN journalist Jim Acosta during a news conference at the White House on Nov. 7 2018 in Washington

"I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice".

"I came in here as a nice person wanting to answer questions, and I had people jumping out of their seats screaming questions at me", said Trump, who talked for almost 90 minutes despite the run-ins with reporters. Sure enough, the White House's clip appears sped up during the actual exchange between Acosta and the White House intern.

"What a stupid question that is", Trump replied to CNN reporter Abby Phillip's question of whether the president hoped Whitaker would "reign in" the Mueller probe.

"The president has only held three of these press conferences, so when you get a chance to ask the president a question, you're going to ask as many questions as you can", says Conte. CNN, she said, was irresponsible to suggest the president was to blame for a pipe bomb sent to the outlet in October. Reporters must treat the White House and the presidency with respect, according to Trump. You have to treat the White House with respect. "I mean, she intentionally disseminated doctored video footage to discredit a reputable journalist".

But even as the entire left seized on this claim (see what I did there), there were other experts who came to different conclusions. To some media observers, Trump's reactions echoed reports that Trump has previously mocked the accent of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi or mimicked the style of Asian trade negotiators. I am so sorry he said what he said to you! Trump has repeatedly shot down suggestions that he is racist. As Acosta tried asking a question, President Trump turned to Fox's John Roberts, instead. "He and I were going back and forth". Every time Trump engages pugnaciously with a reporter, he throws red meat to his base.

Addressing a question about suspending press credentials for other reporters, Trump did not rule out the idea.

She said his press pass was being suspended "until further notice". President Trump responded that he didn't take questions from "Fake News" CNN.

Rashida Tlaib is first Muslim woman elected to U.S. Congress
Her election comes during a presidential administration seen as fanning anger against Muslims and enacting anti-Muslim policies. No Republicans were on the ballot in the heavily Democratic district, which represents parts of Detroit and some suburbs.

She added, "He's not apparently built for this".

The White House Correspondents' Association called on the White House to "immediately reverse this weak and misguided action".

In announcing Acosta's suspension, Sanders said, "The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it is an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this administration".

Author and journalist April Ryan speaks during Lafayette 148 New York x April Ryan "Under Fire" Book Launch on September 13, 2018 in New York City.

Trump has disparaged many people, so his responses to Phillip, Ryan and Alcindor might simply reflect equal-opportunity contempt. "She doesn't know what the hell she is doing".

In a separate tweet, Alcindor said Ryan is "not a loser" and has "been winning in her personal and professional lives for a while".

Despite losing his White House pass, Mr Acosta travelled to Paris to cover Mr Trump's trip to meet world leaders.
