Trump did not answer any of the questions Collins posed.
Multiple media outlets, including Shine's former subordinate at Fox News and the WHCA, condemned the White House's move against Collins.
Smith, 54, who said he has worked at Fox for 22 years, noted his colleagues and other journalists "operate in the public interest". She and a handful of other reporters peppered the president with questions, including many focused on his former lawyer, Michael Cohen. After receiving no answer, she asked, "Are you anxious about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?"
The White House claims she was told she was not welcome to participate in the next event because she shouted questions and didn't leave when she was repeatedly asked to do so.
"The question isn't are the press allowed to ask questions, this president obviously isn't afraid of taking questions", said Conway, who said it's about "being polite and not shouting questions long after the press has politely been asked to leave".

CNN on Wednesday described the White House's ban on Collins as a "retaliatory in nature and not indicative of an open and free press". "This type of retaliation is wholly inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak".

The president gets the publicity he wants - footage, say, of his hand-shake with another head of state or signing key legislation into law.
The White House Correspondents' Association also issued a harshly worded statement condemning "the White House's misguided and inappropriate decision today to bar one of our members from an open press event after she asked questions they did not like". As you'll see below, Wolf Blitzer is pissed. "It doesn't happen and shouldn't happen in the United States". "We are on guard, and we hope - politics aside - for the greater good, that you are, too".
"We stand in strong solidarity with CNN for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press", Fox News president Jay Wallace said late Wednesday.
Pool sprays are typically short opportunities for news photographers to take photos and video of the president and a visiting dignitary.
Several journalists who were present at the Oval Office event disputed Sanders' account of Collins' behavior. The president sometimes takes questions during the sessions.
Even Fox News, where Shine used to be a top executive before resigning over his handling of sexual harassment scandals rocking the network, slapped him down for barring a reporter from doing her job.
