Trump claims video distributed by White House wasn't altered

U.S. President Donald Trump claimed on Friday that a White House-released video depicting contact between a staffer and a CNN reporter wasn't altered, and he seemingly threatened to revoke the White House press credentials of more reporters.

Like text and audio, it can be manipulated and interpreted for political ends.

Television footage showed that Acosta and the intern made brief, benign contact — “Pardon me, maam,” the correspondent said — as she tried to take a microphone away from him at Trumps behest.
