In the latest tweets from President Donald Trump, he explains why Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been giving fewer press briefings. He told her “not to bother”.
“The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the “podium” much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular certain members of the press. I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!”
Yet this does not mean that the public has lost its access to news from the White House. Sanders continues to give informal briefings outside the briefing room, as do numerous other administration officials.
In fact, Sanders has previously offered that, “we have one of the most accessible administrations and presidents in modern history. President Trump regularly engages with the media and any time the American people can hear directly from him that’s a great thing.”
