Kaitlan Collins Trump
In July 2018 Collin was blocked from attending the rump’s Rose Garden statement on trade with the European Union Commission. This was after she had previously asked the president if his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, betrayed him.
“Did Michael Cohen betray you, Mr. President. Mr. President, did Michael Cohen betray you? Mr. President, are you worried about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?”
She has also asked about Russian President Vladimir Putin, who met with Trump in Helsinki, Finland and was in the process of being invited to Washington for a followup meeting.
“Why has Vladimir Putin not accepted your invitation? Why has Vladimir Putin not accepted your invitation, Mr. President? Are you worried about what is on the other tapes, Mr. President?”
The white house officials found her questions “inappropriate” and barred her from the event.
CNN released a statement which read; “Today, CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins was denied access to cover an open press event at The White House. After posing questions to President Trump earlier in the day as the network pool reporter, Collins was told by White House deputy chief of staff for communications Bill Shine and press secretary Sarah Sanders that her questions were ‘inappropriate.’ They were not. Just because the White House is uncomfortable with a question regarding the news of day doesn’t mean the question isn’t relevant and shouldn’t be asked. This decision to bar a member of the press is retaliatory in nature and not indicative of an open and free press. We demand better.”
Sanders also released a statement confirming that Collins was kept out of the event but added that other CNN journalists were welcome to attend in her place.
“At the conclusion of a press event in the Oval Office a reporter shouted questions and refused to leave despite repeatedly being asked to do so. Subsequently, our staff informed her she was not welcome to participate in the next event, but made clear that any other journalist from her network could attend. She said it didn’t matter to her because she hadn’t planned to be there anyway. To be clear, we support a free press and ask that everyone be respectful of the presidency and guests at the White House.”
