Trump has sharp words for ABC's Vega, CNN's Collins

Following the exchange, Vega went on to ask her question, which was about the White House reportedly limiting the scope of an ongoing FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations leveled against Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's second nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. "Like in a state of shock", Trump said after pointing to Vega.

According to the Daily Beast, the White House attempted to remedy the president's blunder by changing a word in the official transcript, which reads, "I know you're not thanking".

The US President then brushed aside her remark saying, "No, go ahead". The president said, "She's shocked I called on her, she's in a state of shock" and laughs, along with his colleagues behind him.

Despite being briefly rattled by Trump's comments, Vega attempted to ask a question about the restrictions the White House was reportedly putting on the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Kavanaugh and was immediately shot down under the guise that he wanted to talk about trade.

Vega later addressed the exchange on Twitter, saying she believed the President had clearly heard her questions.

Others said they were going to make an apology in the absence of one from the President. "I think it's the - to me, it's the most exciting thing you can talk about".

The Kavanaugh probe was the elephant in the room during today's press conference, and soon even Mr Trump couldn't ignore it. "Thank you, Mr. President". The president called a press conference at the White House to announce the long-awaited deal, known as USMCA, which will replace NAFTA.

Trump waved his finger at CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins, yelling, "Don't do that!"

Trump interrupted Jiang as well and when she pointed that fact out, he told her to sit down.

After several questions on the issue, Collins tried again. "You've had enough. You've really had enough". "It's unfair to him at this point".

In the White House transcript, the president's audible slight to Vega is edited. "I'm not giving it to you".
