A Trump staffer and a private security guard removed a Politico reporter from an event at the San Jose Convention Center, the report said.


The unidentified journalist, who was attending with a general admission ticket, was escorted out after being asked whether they had press credentials.

Trump’s campaign has repeatedly denied press credentials for the reporter, Politico reported. The campaign on Friday said it would look into the incident.

“The campaign is not aware of the incident or any details pertaining to it and therefore cannot comments,” spokeswoman Hope Hicks said. "[We’re] looking into it.”

Moments after being ejected, the journalist got an email saying they will not get credentials for a Friday Trump rally in Redding, Calif.

Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, on Tuesday accused the national media of being biased against him during a heated press conference in New York City.

“I’m going to continue to attack the press,” he said. "I find the press to be dishonest. I find the political press to be extremely dishonest.”

The business tycoon personally attacked individual reporters during the event, sarcastically calling one “a beauty” and another “a sleaze.”
