The White House on Wednesday banned a CNN reporter from a press event in the Rose Garden for asking President Trump questions, according to a CNN report.
Kaitlan Collins, a White House reporter for CNN, got in trouble with the White House when she asked at an event, “Did Michael Cohen betray you, Mr. President?” and repeated the question once, according to CNN.
She then asked, “Mr. President, are you worried about what Michael Cohen is about to say to the prosecutors? Are you worried about what is on the other tapes, Mr. President?”
After the event, communications deputy Bill Shine informed Collins that she was not invited to a press availability in the Rose Garden later in the afternoon because she asked questions that were “inappropriate” for the venue and for reportedly shouted the questions.
Press Secretary Sanders later explained that the White House “support[s] a free press” but added that they expect “everyone be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House.”
