VIDEO: Trump Responds to Judge’s Ruling, Says He’ll ‘Throw Out’ CNN’s Acosta Again “If He Misbehaves”

President Trump recently sat down with Fox News’ Chris Wallace for what is being billed by some as a “big interview” and discussed, amongst other issues, his ongoing verbal and legal battle with CNN and so-called “journalist” Jim Acosta.

CNN and Acosta previously sued the President and several top aides after the White House stripped Acosta’s press credentials after he seemingly pushed aside an intern merely trying to do her job.

In a promotional clip released by Fox News earlier today, the President discussed the temporary restraining order a Trump-appointed Judge issued earlier today that allows Acosta to retain his press credentials for a short time.

“It’s not a big deal,” President Trump said of the Judge’s ruling. “But what they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct… We’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now. It’s not a big deal. And if he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”

When Wallace pressed the President on what these rules would be exactly, Trump responded by saying that there are “rules of decorum” and that reporters cannot simply continue to ask questions – a tactic Acosta has often utilized in order to badger Trump and gain favor amongst his liberal allies.

President Trump also indicated that he will no longer continue a press conference if reporters continue to utilize these tactics, a policy the Obama administration seemingly embraced and were never criticized for using.

“Look, nobody believes in the First Amendment more than I do,” the President continued. “And if I think somebody is acting out of sorts, I will leave. I’ll say, ‘Thank you very much, everybody. I appreciate you coming.’ And I’ll leave. And those reporters will not be too friendly to whoever it is that’s acting up.”
