The president has voiced his displeasure over what takes place at the daily press briefings. According to Trump, White House press secretary Sean Spicer is “beat up” on a daily basis by the press corp. He says if Spicer or his fill-in, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, get even the tiniest bit of information incorrect, the press makes it the top headline the next day.
The president told Fox News he moves so quickly that it’s impossible for his press secretary to remain 100% accurate at all times. He also pointed out how popular the daily press briefings are in terms of TV ratings. “People love to watch this thing every day. Look at the ratings, ” he said.
When pressed for a solution, President Trump suggested he may do away with the press briefings as they are today. He voiced an idea about having them done once every two weeks, or where they’d be done via video recording where he or Spicer answers a question or two from a pool of questions received in writing beforehand. Our very own DML shared a similar idea a few days ago during the Walk & Talk, and just last night Sean Hannity agreed with the idea of changing the press briefings into something more digital.
