Trump Spars With Reporters Acosta and Alexander at Press Conference
Updated on

The Trump Administration was in court defending its decision to revoke CNN Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass, arguing reporters don’t have a Constitutional right to access the White House.

CNN sued after the White House pulled Acosta’s “hard pass,” citing his conduct at a Nov. 7 news conference where he refused to hand over a microphone. The network is asking a judge to reinstate Acosta’s pass immediately. A hard pass allows people unescorted access to the White House and its grounds.
