The White House is already hitting back after Jim Acosta got his press pass reinstated by the court.


The CNN reporter was denied entrance into the White House after a heated exchange with President Donald Trump. He was then informed that his press pass was revoked.

But CNN pushed back. The major news network sued the White House and won a temporary reinstatement for Acosta on Friday. They claimed that Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights were violated.

The restraining order which granted Acosta a temporary pass will expire at the end of the month. Yet the White House has reportedly sent out a message saying that Acosta will be barred from conferences. Once the pass expires, they are in their legal right to do so.

In response, CNN said in a statement:

“The White House is continuing to violate the First and 5th Amendments of the Constitution. These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations. Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President.”


The action of restricting a journalist from asking questions has set off many waves of anger. Some have gone as far as to propose that it reflects a dangerous authoritarian nature.

BBC reported the president's words in an interview pertaining to the entire matter. According to Trump, the ruling against his administration was no "big deal."

He espoused that "people have to behave." He also claims that his staff is "writing up rules and regulations" for future press conferences.


"If they don't listen to the rules and regulations we'll end up back in court and will win. But more importantly, we'll just leave, and then you won't be very happy."

He added:

"You can't take three questions and four questions and just stand up and not sit down. Decorum. You have to practice decorum."

Soon after the revoking, Trump called Acosta "a very unprofessional man." He said: "I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice."


Nevertheless, Judge Timothy Kelly was Trump-appointed himself. Kelly decisively said the constitutional rights took precedence over the conference disorder and granted Acosta the pass.

If CNN successfully extends the injunction at the end of the month, then Acosta would be allowed to report in the White House long-term. That is, until a federal court intervenes with a permanent ruling.
