Rumble / Trending NewsReuters reports the White House barred reporters from covering a dinner between US President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un on Wednesday
Reporters from Reuters, the Associated Press and Bloomberg were uninvited after two of them asked Trump questions during his initial interactions with Kim.
Reporters regularly shout out questions to leaders. On Wednesday, they asked Trump about the summit and Michael Cohen's congressional testimony.
The reporters were later excluded from covering the dinner due to what White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders called “sensitivities over shouted questions."
“Due to the sensitive nature of the meetings we have limited the pool for the dinner to a smaller group, but ensured that representation of photographers, tv, radio and print Poolers are all in the room."
“We are continuing to negotiate aspects of this historic summit and will always work to make sure the U.S. media has as much access as possible.”
