Donald Trump is now welcoming all media to cover his campaign.

Trump's campaign confirmed to CNBC on Wednesday that the media blacklist is being removed. The Republican presidential nominee had banned several outlets from covering his campaign for perceived bias, including The Washington Post, Politico, The Huffington Post and Buzzfeed.

Politico reported that some reporters would attend Trump events as members of the public, but occasionally were thrown out once security realized that they were journalists.

Trump has been outspoken against the media but seems to be lightening up his stance against some outlets. Last week, the campaign announced the print press pool — where organizations work together to gather news and distribute it to all members — could include several previously blacklisted organizations like BuzzFeed.

Disclosure: CNBC parent company NBCUniversal is an investor in BuzzFeed.
