"We strongly condemn 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", said WHCA President Olivier Knox.
Trump had initially invited Putin to Washington this fall for a follow-up meeting to their Helsinki summit, but Trump national security adviser John Bolton changed the timeline this week, saying Trump now believes it should take place "after the Russian Federation witch hunt is over" and "after the first of the year".
President Trump has repeatedly sought official retaliation against journalists over how they question him, according to current and former administration sources who spoke with the Washington Post.
In Helsinki, Putin said for the first time that he had wanted Trump to win the 2016 U.S. presidential election and after the summit complained about political forces in the United States trying to undermine the meeting's outcome.
But speaking to reporters in South Africa, where he was attending a summit of BRICS nations, Putin said another meeting with Trump was still on the agenda.
The White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) condemned the act in a statement and said that "this type of retaliation is wholly inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak", adding, "In our republic, the WHCA supports the prerogative of all reporters to do their jobs without fear of reprisal from the government".
"We stand in strong solidarity with CNN for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press", said Fox News president Jay Wallace.
National security adviser John Bolton later said that no Putin-Trump meeting would take place until the special prosecutor's investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Russian Federation was concluded, which would push the meeting back to 2019. For instance, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats reiterated the US intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 elections and recently stated that Russian Federation is continuing efforts to interfere in America's democratic processes. Likewise, Putin said, "I am ready to go to Washington".
The White House said Trump was enthusiastic about another summit.
The White House quickly responded favorably to the idea. Putin, according to the American transcript, he replied "Yes, we were". He says she refused to do that and stayed "despite staff, Secret Service, everyone trying to usher everyone out of the room".
The two leaders' meeting comes three days after 12 Russian intelligence officials in hacking the Democratic National Committee during the election.
Putin answered Mason's question by saying, "Yes, I did" want Trump to win "because he talked about bringing the U.S. -Russia relationship back to normal".
It is standard protocol for reporters to ask the president questions at such events, and Trump, unlike some of his predecessors, often engages.
US officials have said Russian interfered in the 2016 election, and McConnell says he thinks the Russians will try again in 2018.
Moscow has portrayed its tensions with Washington as a result of Trump being hobbled by domestic political disputes and a widespread "Russophobia" perpetrated by holdovers from the Obama years - echoing Trump's penchant to blame his predecessor for many problems.
The level 3 warning, one behind a national emergency, has been issued with temperatures set to be in the high 20s this week. He went on: "Weather fronts are trying to come in from the Atlantic and eventually they will do so".
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow leveled the charge Tuesday night, accusing the White House of deliberately leaving out the question. Any group listening only to the translation side would have a hard time getting the full question, and so it was left out.

Russian operatives' knowledge of Trump's sex life, of a list of accusers and of payoffs, would be powerful leverage for Moscow. The parties had previously claimed the 12 recordings were "privileged" and couldn't be seen by the government.

The court's decision angered a number of legal experts who claim the law is out of date and in desperate need of changing. A statement made by Mr Owens' solicitors said he should not be "unfairly criticised for attempting to save his marriage".
