"We have so many people that want to go in, so we'll have to just have to pick the people to go into the room. I'm sure other people will be thrilled about that," he said.

"And they'll be begging for a much larger room very soon," he said. "You watch."
“So no one is moving out of the White House,” he said on ABC's "This Week." “That is the White House, where you can fit four times the amount of people in the press conference, allowing more press, more coverage from all over the country to have those press conferences. That's what we're talking about."
Priebus added on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the discussions are focused on "press briefings" as opposed to removing reporters from the White House.
"This is about quadrupling the amount of reporters who can cover our press conference," Priebus said.
