President Trump doubled-down on his administration’s decision to remove Jim Acosta’s press pass Friday afternoon; saying CNN’s White House correspondent will be “thrown out” again should he “misbehave.”
The President was speaking with Fox News’ Chris Wallace when he was asked to comment on a federal judge’s recent ruling that re-instated Acosta’s media credentials.

“What’s your reaction to the ruling?” asked Wallace.
“It’s fine. It’s not a big deal. What they said is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct. We’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now,” said Trump. “If he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference. We’ll have rules of decorum. You can’t keep asking questions.”
ACOSTA DENIED: CNN’s Jim Acosta BOOTED from Trump Briefing After SCREAMING Questions
CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta was singled-out during the President’s joint press briefing this week, with officials demanding the anti-Trump journalist “get out” after he repeatedly screamed questions at the Commander-in-Chief.
The President was speaking alongside Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte when the briefing came to its scheduled conclusion.
Acosta refused to leave the room, hurling questions at the world leaders until he was forced to leave.

ACOSTA DENIED: Jim Acosta BOOTED from White House by Secret Service
CNN’s senior correspondent Jim Acosta was barred entry to the White House this week after a new secret service agent reportedly failed to recognize the reporter; telling him to retrieve his press pass before entering the premises.
The altercation was captured on video Wednesday, showing Acosta asking to be allowed entry to the White House as the Secret Service agent refused; eventually forcing the journalist to leave the area.
Acosta is no stranger when it comes to controversy regarding the President.
The CNN correspondent came under fire earlier this year after he publicly harassed the First Family during the annual White House Easter festivities.
