U.S. preparing to impose new sanctions on Iran: White House

Talev went on to state that it is the responsibility of a free press to report on everything that is happening, whether good or bad, from the important to the mundane.

TIME: Could you assure that even news outlets that you feel are being very unfair to you will continue to have their credentials at the White House if you're elected President?

After the President's tweet today, CNN reported that he has repeatedly "mused privately" about revoking credentials.

Acosta also noted that the White House Correspondents Association has condemned Trump's proposal as "an unconscionable assault on the First Amendment".

Burks mentioned dismissively something like "maybe it's time that we had a Chaplain that wasn't a Catholic". Ryan also mentioned inadequate "spiritual counseling", Conroy said .


President Trump threatened to remove new networks' press credentials Wednesday over negative coverage, suggesting that recent negative comments about his presidency were "fake" news. "Take away credentials?" the President said on Twitter.

"The fact that I'm standing here taking questions, the fact that the president took questions from your colleagues just two hours ago demonstrates this White House's commitment to accessibility, and to providing information to the American public", she said.

At a brief press availability on Wednesday as he held a cabinet meeting, Trump was asked by a pool reporter if he would ban the press from the White House. During his 2016 campaign he blacklisted reporters from several outlets, including Politico, The Daily Beast and the Huffington Post, from his rallies.

Last fall, the Media Research Center released a study citing that figure after evaluating the nightly newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC during the summer. Then a reality TV star, Trump was in the audience in 2011 when Barack Obama famously mocked him for renewing the "birther" conspiracy about the nation's first black president.
