Washington, DC- Fresh off a U.S. District Court ruling that forced the Trump Administration to return the press pass of CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced new rules of conduct for reporters on Tuesday.
“Should you refuse to follow these rules in the future, we will take action in accordance with the rules set forth above. The President is aware of this decision and concurs,” Huckabee Sanders read from a prepared statement.
“We will be distributing the new rules to members of the press corps, and will be posting the rules at various locations throughout the White House. Please take note; this is a zero tolerance policy. The White House does not condone acts of violence and abuse, and any future incidents will result in revocation of credentials,” the Press Secretary told reports. “As representatives of the most prestigious position in the free would, we expect members of the press corps to operate with a degree of decorum and to show the President and his representatives the respect they deserve as such.”
