Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, discusses Jeff Sessions resignation as attorney general and CNN reporter Jim Acosta's refusal to give up the microphone during a White House press conference.

Trump and Acosta have long have a contentious relationship as the CNN reporter often asks the president questions that seemed created to illicit a reaction from him.

The video appears to be taken from fringe far-right website InfoWars to make it look like Acosta chopped down on the intern's arm.

Sanders' tweet of the edited video, in which she said the White House would "not tolerate the inappropriate behaviour clearly documented in this video", has at least 20,000 retweets and more than 2 million views.

Among the issues that reporters brought up, Acosta asked for a comment on the refugee caravan heading for the U.S. -Mexico border.

Eventually NBC reporter Peter Alexander took the microphone and defended his fellow reporter, despite him being from a separate network, calling him a "diligent reporter" - which only proved to anger Trump more.

The GOP's successes were fueled by a coalition that's decidedly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have college degrees. Twenty-five percent described health care and immigration as the most important issues in the election.

"That's enough, that's enough", the president said, before telling Mr Acosta to sit down and to put down his microphone.

"CNN should be ashamed of themselves, having you work for them", he said. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that Acosta's credentials have been suspended.

"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", Trump said.

"To say that, what you said, is so insulting to me", he said. You and I disagree on this, ' Trump said. I think they're trying to shut us down. "You are are a rude, awful person".

The suspension comes after a heated confrontation Wednesday between Acosta and President Donald Trump during a news conference.

He was later turned away at the White House press centre by secret service officers.

Better Call Saul executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are rumored to be involved, too. The previous report noted that production would commence in New Mexico next month.

"It was done in retaliation for his challenging questions at today's press conference", CNN communications said in a statement posted to Twitter. Acosta started his question by quoting a poem etched at the base of the Statue of Liberty and asked whether the government was rigging the system for Great Britain and Australia.

"When you report fake news, which CNN does a lot, you are the enemy of the people", Trump said to Acosta when he protested again.

Acosta responded that Sanders' description of events was "a lie".

Mr Trump took the rare step of mocking Republican candidates who kept their distance from him during the campaign because of concerns that his divisive messages on immigration would turn off voters - but lost anyway.
