Trump insults female reporter: 'You're not thinking. You never do'

During a Rose Garden speech about a proposed White House trade deal between the U.S., Mexico and Canada, the president called on Vega to ask a question.

The reporter, ABC's White House correspondent Cecilia Vega, then tried to correct the president, but was then met with further insults. "Like in a state of shock". Vega answered "I'm not, thank you", to which the president accused the reporter of not thinking.

He later returned to the question she had asked him about Kavanaugh in which he defended his nominee to the Supreme Court again.

The transcript issued hours later omitted Vega's word "thinking" and showed Trump saying, 'I know you're not thanking'.

As she turned to receive a microphone to ask Trump a question, he joked: "She's shocked that I picked her".

Rachel Mitchell argued that that there were inconsistencies in Ford's narrative and said no one has corroborated Ford's account. It's not now clear whether the Republican leadership has secured enough votes to ensure Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation.

When Vega paused to ask what he'd said - "I'm sorry?" - the President sought to move things along. "You never do", Trump shot back.

"Now that you've answered several questions on trade, I'd like to turn to Judge Kavanaugh", she said. So, where the United States president accused the reporter of "not thinking", it now says "not thanking".

Eventually, Trump allowed questions on the matter, which has consumed Washington as the FBI investigates claims of sexual assault levied against Kavanaugh. The president called a press conference at the White House to announce the long-awaited deal, known as USMCA, which will replace NAFTA. When Trump wants to attack women, he often resorts to stereotypes, reducing women to their looks or their intellect (or supposed lack of it) in many instances. Similarly to Vega, Collins was reproached with the president wagging his finger at her saying her actions were "not nice". "You've had enough. You've really had enough". "It's unfair to him at this point".

Trump again lashed out at the media over their coverage of Kavanaugh and also referenced a Democratic senator in weird threat: "I've seen that person in very, very bad situations, somewhat compromising".

"If you don't mind, after I'm finished, if [CBS's] Weijia [Jiang], or [NBC's] Hallie [Jackson], or [the Wall Street Journal's] Vivian [Salama], or one of our female colleagues could go after me, that would be great", Acosta said.
