UK reporters locked out of White House press conference over birth date confusion

UK reporters locked out of White House press conference over birth date confusion
A cohort of British journalists were refused entry to the White House for the Donald Trump and Theresa May press conference due to confusion over the formatting of birth dates between US and UK English.
