President Trump has responded to Friday’s ruling to reinstate CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass.

During a bill signing in the Oval Office, the president said “we have to practice decorum…we want total freedom of the press.”

He said this White House will be “setting up a certain standard” for press briefings in the future.

This comes after Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blasted the decision by saying the court made it clear there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House. She said the administration will develop rules to ensure fair and orderly press conferences.

Acosta has since received his new hard pass after it was revoked last week.
