CNN's senior White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, took to Twitter on Wednesday to complain that the White House would not take his question.

Acosta, who has vocally opposed the White House's press briefings not being on camera, said that he tried asking White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about fundraisers President Donald Trump is hosting for Republicans at Trump-owned properties.

Acosta said in a tweet that he had asked Sanders at the briefing, "Isn't holding a fundraiser at the Trump hotel rather swamp-like?"

The reporter then tweeted that he never got a response.

Acosta finished off his series of tweets by saying video coverage of the briefing was "outlawed."
