Mr Acosta said: "They are hundreds of miles away".

Meghan McCain became exasperated on The View over the Jim Acosta incident yesterday, in which he brushed the arm of an intern after she tried to violently jerk a microphone out of his hand as he was grilling Donald Trump.

Earlier in the day Trump called Acosta "a rude, awful person" as he tried to ask the president a question.

Acosta called the White House's claims "lies" and CNN defended its reporter in a statement.

He added that the broken sensor from the Bali-Jakarta flight would be sent to the manufacturer in Chicago for further examination. The Lion Air crash is the worst airline disaster in Indonesia since 1997, when 234 people died on a Garuda flight near Medan.

Trump had scolded the reporter earlier on Wednesday when he asked about the migrant caravan and the Russian Federation investigation. Acosta, she added, asked several questions during the press conference.

In a series of tweets later that day, Sanders accused Acosta of "placing his hands on a young woman".

When the president tried to go to another journalist, Acosta declined to give up the microphone and asked about possible indictments by special counsel Robert Mueller based on the ongoing investigation into Trump's presidential campaign. You are a rude, awful person. "As visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth", said Whitney Shefte, president of the the White House News Photographers Association. "You are a rude, bad person, you shouldn't be working for CNN", Trump said.

The encounter with Mr. Acosta came during a testy exchange with Mr. Trump over a caravan of illegal migrants from Central America. "You shouldn't be working for CNN". "Jim Acosta has our full support", CNN said. "The way you treat Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is disgusting".

Acosta denied Sanders' claims and said that he didn't touch the intern.

"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration".

But multiple news outlets cited experts in reporting that the video was likely sped up, and as a result, makes Acosta's hand movement appear more than it actually was. In a statement issued Wednesday evening, CNN concurred, saying: "The White House announced tonight that it has revoked the press pass of CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta".

"I'm not a fan of yours either".
