Watch: Fired-up President Trump rips into another CNN reporter - 'You ask a lot of stupid questions'

US President Donald Trump slammed another CNN reporter on Friday, this time Abby Phillip, an African American woman, for asking what he said was "a stupid question".

Trump made the disparaging comment while talking to reporters as he was departing for Paris, France.

Phillip asked Trump whether he would like his new acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker to "rein in" Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump responded by saying, "What a stupid question," adding, "But I watch you a lot. You ask a lot of stupid questions."

The comments followed Trump's attacks during the same question and answer session on CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who he called "unprofessional" and not smart, and Urban Radio Networks' April Ryan, who he called "very nasty" and "a loser".

Earlier in the week, the White House seized Acosta's White House press credential, while Trump suggested on Friday that more reporters could lose theirs.
