On Friday morning, President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets about how members of his press team communicate with the media. In recent days, President Trump and several of his top surrogates have contradicted one another regarding how the decision to fire FBI Director James Comey came about. The doublespeak on the Comey firing was the latest example of the Trump White House not having its story straight before going to the press.
In a Friday tweet, Trump chalked up his surrogate’s inaccuracies to an inability to keep up with such a very active president.
“As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!” Trump said.
Later on in the morning, Trump suggested that it may be best to do away with press briefings all together.
“…Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future “press briefings” and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???”
