White House Threatens To Ban CNN’s Jim Acosta If He Asks Trump About Gillibrand Tweet (He Asks Anyway)

The Washington Examiner reports:

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta claimed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders threatened to curtail his media access if he shouted a question at President Trump. Acosta ignored the alleged warning, using a “pool spray” Tuesday at the White House to ask Trump about a tweet he sent out earlier in the day about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

Acosta’s question to the president was related to a tweeted Trump sent out earlier in the day, accusing Gillibrand, who has called for his resignation, of “begging” him for political donations. He added a parenthetical to the tweet that said Gillibrand “would do anything for” the donations.
