Credentials enable reporters to more easily access rallies and other campaign events leading up to the November 2020 election. Members of the public must obtain tickets from the campaign and then wait in long lines to enter events.

"Since they have declared their bias openly, the campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events," 's campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.
