The star host of the American channel CNN had his accreditation withdrawn after a heated exchange with Donald Trump during a press conference on November 7. A judge told him right on Friday to recover.

A judge in Washington ordered the White House on Friday to restore the accreditation of a CNN journalist who had been denied access to the US presidency after a heated exchange with Donald Trump. This temporary injunction is a victory for the streaming news channel and its star reporter, Jim Acosta, who lost the precious ticket on November 7 after a tense press conference where he had a time to turn his microphone off, urging President Trump to refuse to answer a question about his migration policy.

"I order (at the White House) to immediately reinstate Mr. Acosta's accreditation , " said Judge Timothy Kelly. CNN filed a complaint based on the First Amendment to the US Constitution, which protects freedom of expression.

Many supporters to the journalist

Justice Kelly stated that he had not made a decision on the merits, merely taking an emergency injunction. "I want to insist that I have not decided the question of a violation of the First Amendment," said the magistrate. The defenders of the right of the press however immediately expressed their satisfaction.

Statement from CNN and @Acosta on today's ruling: "We are gratified with this result and we look forward to a full resolution in the coming days. Our sincere thanks to all but not just CNN, but a free, strong and independent American press. "

The story had made a lot of noise and the American TV reporter had received a lot of support, including from the competing Fox News channel, many of whose presenters are yet known supporters of President Trump.
