Kaitlan Collins said she was excluded from a Rose Garden event after asking about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Trump's ex-lawyer.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the reporter had shouted questions and refused to leave, report CNN and the BBC.

Collins attended a photo opportunity with Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday.

She was acting as the White House pool reporter – one of a rotating group of journalists, who will attend an event and write a report which all other networks can use.

This system allows networks to share the burden of covering the president.

Collins said she had tried to ask Trump questions about Russian President Vladimir Putin's postponed visit and recently released tapes documenting a conversation with lawyer Michael Cohen.
