CNN CHIEF White House cor­re­spon­dent Jim Acosta is met by a sea of re­porters as he ar­rives at the White House af­ter hav­ing his press pass re­stored.

The White House re­voked Acosta’s cre­den­tials last week af­ter a heated ex­change be­tween the re­porter and Pres­i­dent Trump and an al­ter­ca­tion with a press aide who had been asked to si­lence Acosta. CNN sued Trump and other of­fi­cials over the re­vo­ca­tion of the pass.

On Nov. 16 a fed­eral judge or­dered the White House to tem­po­rar­ily re­store Acosta’s cre­den­tials, and three days later, the White House fully re­stored the pass, avoid­ing lit­i­ga­tion.
