Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign announced Wednesday that it is ending its blacklist of media outlets on Thursday, CNN reports.

The Trump campaign has not credentialed BuzzFeed, Politico, Huffington Post, Univision, The Washington Post and Des Moines Register reporters at different times during the campaign. Despite Trump denying credentials to Post reporters to cover his events, he still did several interviews with the newspaper.

The Republican nominee has railed against the media throughout his candidacy. Trump has called the press “disgusting, dishonest human beings.” His running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has previously told reporters covering him that he will talk to Trump about lifting the press blacklist. It’s possibly that Pence’s influence led to this change.
