CNN reporter Jim Acosta just tweeted that the White House warned him not to ask Donald Trump a question during a bill signing event on Tuesday, claiming that press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders suggested he would be banned from future events if he did.

Twitter response:

The White House press pool rotates print and broadcast reporters from different outlets on a schedule to cover events at the White House. Reporters, during the events, are allowed to ask the president and other officials questions.

At the bill signing event today, Acosta asked Trump about his attack against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand earlier in the morning in which he suggested the New York senator would “do anything” for a campaign contribution.

Trump did not answer the question.
