'I know you're not thinking. You never do.'

'I know you're not thinking. You never do.'

'I know you're not thinking. You never do.'

"That's OK, I know you're not thinking", responded Trump, who apparently misheard her.

I'm not, thank you, Mr. President.

The US president called on ABC News' Cecilia Vega to ask a question.

Vega responded, "I'm not thinking, thank you Mr. President". He then declined to answer her question.

Reports said that a White House transcript of the event had been edited later to amend the statement made by Trump.

When confronted with questions about the sexual assault investigation that his supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is now undergoing, Trump's demeanor changed, and he became rather defensive. Shocked by the comment, Vega said, "I'm sorry?" while he dismissively told her to "Go ahead.".

Trump's press conference was frequently combative, with the president telling reporters that he considered them to be a wing of the Democratic party.

Later in the conference, Trump did belittle CNN's Kaitlan Collins when she asked a question about Brett Kavanaugh, demanding her question be only about trade and wagging his finger at her.

Like when he used to word "loco" to describe the media and then, seemingly aware that that wasn't a good thing to say, explained that he used it because of the new deal with Mexico. Hmm. "You never do", the president said.

"There's some frustration that more hasn't been done, more hasn't been done about bump stocks", she said.

"I happen to know some United States senators".

This insult to Cecilia Vega is another in a string of incidents, and its disappearance in the first official transcripts raise their own questions about what exactly is going on in the Donald Trump White House.

Vega responded with "I'm sorry?" before calmly asking him about reports that the White House is limiting the scope of the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"I wouldn't mind that at all", Trump said. Can you imagine if I had?

"I think it would be great if a female reporter were to ask you a question about this issue", Acosta continued - referring to the latest sexual misconduct allegation against Kavanaugh.
