White House ordered to reinstate Jim Acosta’s press credentials

In the United States, a federal judge has ordered the White House to reinstate the press credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta, whose pass was revoked after a heated exchange with President Donald Trump.

Judge Timothy Kelly issued a temporary restraining order that requires the White House to restore Acosta’s access until a full hearing is held.

CNN and other media groups had backed the lawsuit, which claimed that revoking Acosta’s pass violated constitutional guarantees of a free press.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, they would abide by the judge’s decision.
