WH Threatened To Ban CNN’s Jim Acosta If He Asked Trump a Question. He Did It Anyway

CNN reporter Jim Acosta revealed Tuesday that the White House warned him not to ask President Trump a question during a bill signing event, claiming that press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders threatened to revoke his access at future events if he did.

Acosta’s claim comes a day after he clashed with Sanders about media accuracy during a press briefing.

Reporters, during the events, are allowed to ask the president and other officials questions. But the White House didn’t want Acosta to question Trump.

However, at the Tuesday event, Acosta ignored the warning and asked the president about his attack against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) earlier in the morning in which he suggested the New York senator would “do anything” for a campaign contribution.

The question, which Trump did not respond to, took place after he signed off on the National Defense Authorization Act for the 2018 fiscal year. In his remarks about the measure, he touted that his administration has accelerated “the process of fully restoring America’s military might.”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Acosta’s tweet.
