White House says will ‘temporarily’ reinstate CNN reporter’s pass

WASHINGTON, Nov 16, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – The White House said Friday it will “temporarily” reinstate a press pass for CNN reporter Jim Acosta after a court ruled he had been improperly barred following a contentious exchange with President Donald Trump.

Trump spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said “in response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter’s hard pass.”

But she left open the possibility of seeking to remove Acosta’s access later and said new rules would be imposed “to ensure fair and orderly press conferences.”
