CNN reporter Jim Acosta had his White House pass taken away earlier this month after a confrontation with President Trump at a press conference.
Trump, who has long blasted the media, and often targeted Acosta, said on "Fox News Sunday" that the judge's decision was "not a big deal" and that the White House would establish rules for the press.
"Having received a formal reply from your counsel to our letter of November 16, we have made a final determination in this process: your hard pass is restored", the White House said in a new letter to Acosta. "It would be a great loss for all if, instead of relying on the professionalism of White House journalists, we were compelled to devise a lengthy and detailed code of conduct for White House events". For the moment, it appears they will not do so. A second question may be allowed at the discretion of the president or White House staff.
Kelly - who was appointed by President Donald Trump - granted a temporary restraining order in CNN's favor Friday, forcing the Trump administration to reinstate Acosta'scredentials while CNN's full legal challenge continued.
