During a period when Trump has faced a lot of scrutiny about his no-show at the Veteran’s ceremony in France to take part in events marking the 100th anniversary of World War I, his no-show at the Arlington National Cemetary on Veteran’s Day and his criticism of Retired Adm. William McRaven who was the architect of the bin Laden raid, Trump has wasted no time informing Jim Acosta his press pass could be revoked again at the end of the month. It was recently restored by the courts on Friday.
Retired Adm. William McRaven on Sunday stood by his previous statement that President Donald Trump’s attacks on the news media represent “the greatest threat to democracy” after the President dismissed him as a “Hillary Clinton backer” in an interview that aired on Fox News.
White House officials sent Jim Acosta a letter stating that his pass is set to be suspended again once the restraining order expires, Axios reports.
CNN is fighting back, and is expected back in court as soon as today.https://t.co/DBeCyTaTJ4

The @WhiteHouse is continuing to violate the First and Fifth amendments of the Constitution. These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations. @Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/knr1NpyMVv
