The White house on Wednesday rejected an employee of CNN in attending the press conference for «disrespect» to the President and his guests.

The incident occurred during the official part of the meeting of the President of Donald trump and the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker in the oval office of the White house. According to the press service of the White house, talking about her Kaitlan Collins.

«At the conclusion of the press event in the oval office correspondent shouted questions and refused to leave, despite repeated requests. Subsequently, our staff told her that she can’t participate in the next event, but made it clear that any other journalist of her company can participate. She said it was not important for her because she didn’t plan to be there in any case», — is spoken in the statement by the press Secretary of the White house Sarah Sanders.

«Clearly I want to say that we support freedom of the press and ask that everyone respect (Institute) presidency and guests in the White house,» reads the statement.

In turn, CNN also released a statement on the situation, which reported that Sanders and her colleague from the White house, bill Shine called the reporter’s questions «inappropriate». The channel claims that it is not, and gives a list of questions, most of which is associated with the former trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen. One of the questions sounded like: «Why (Russian President) Vladimir Putin does not accept your invitation (to visit US)?»

CNN I believe the actions of the White house staff «response to awkward questions» and I believe that it is not a manifestation of an open and free press.

Relations CNN and trump went wrong from the time of the election campaign: TV channel daily criticizes the President, and he calls it «fake news» and refuses to give interviews.
