Jim Acosta row: Donald Trump threat over reporters’ behavior

The US president was speaking after a Washington DC court ordered the White House to return CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass after it was revoked by the US Secret Service.

Mr Acosta’s press pass was taken after he clashed with the president during a news conference earlier this month.

Mr Trump played down the ruling, saying it wasn’t “a big deal”.

But, he said, “people have to behave”, adding his staff were “writing up rules and regulations” for the press to abide by, including sticking to the agreed number of questions.

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

  1. It’s a sad day when members of the press have to be treated like children because they are acting like children. This is what happens when young people aren’t taught to behave and grow in to adults who still don’t know how to behave. Thanks a lot Dr. Spock!

  2. I remember that one of the first rules implemented by Pres. Ronald Reagan was that reporters in White House press briefings would raise their hands without verbally calling attention to themselves and wait to be called upon. He put an end to the unseemly, disorganized, and loud briefings and the reporters obeyed those rules. Reagan’s rules regarding reporters’ behavior during White House press briefings need to be implemented again.

  3. White House Rule # 1: “Just put your byline on our press release.” Oh, you already do that….at least in Southern Arizona. The muckrakers of days past are turning over in their graves.
