White House personal cell phone ban starts next week

CNN Announces New Washington Correspondent Assignments CNN promotes Jim Acosta

Finally, Trump's top spokeswoman's omission of what White House officials late last year wanted to be a top legislative goal for their second year signaled the president and his team now believe midterm election year politics make it too hard. She joins Jeff Zeleny as CNN senior White House correspondents.

During this afternoon's White House press briefing, CNN's Jim Acosta and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tangled a bit over President Donald Trump using his morning "Executive Time" to watch Fox & Friends, with Sanders taking the opportunity to ding CNN's ratings.

Indeed, Trump's former press secretary Sean Spicer suggested a year ago that something must be done to plug the leaks that were plaguing the White House, while one memo from former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey claims Trump asked about the possibility of imprisoning journalists over information leaks.

The crowd of White House reporters gasped at her response.

That's despite CNN's reporting that House Speaker Paul Ryan called the President after the first tweet and that Trump's tweet sparked confusion on Capitol Hill.

Sanders then assured the room Trump had been talking about the issues he tweeted about for weeks and that this was not something "that just happened this morning".

What's more, as two GOP senators involved in immigration talks, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, disagreed over whether lawmakers and the president have struck a deal, Sanders was more clear. "However, we still think we can get there".

According to the CNN report among the possible big names that could be departing are White House counsel Don McGahn and the National Security Advisor HR McMaster who are both thought to be mulling over their futures with the administration.

With an eye on bolstering cyber security protocols and cracking down on leaks to the media, Chief of Staff John Kelly issued a memo to staff on Wednesday outlining the administration's new ban on personal cell phones within the West Wing complex of the White House. "There's no other bill".
