President Trump is clearly no fan of the media, but his Friday morning suggestion to “cancel all future ‘press briefings'” has raised some eyebrows.
Trump argued that it was “not possible” that his surrogates would be able to “stand at [the] podium with perfect accuracy.”
By a Friday afternoon press briefing, White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked to explain Trump’s tweet.
Spicer said that Trump was “a little dismayed” as the administration attempted to communicate the president’s actions to the American public.
“And yet, we see time and time again an attempt to parse every little word and make it more of a game of ‘gotcha’ as opposed to really [figuring] out what the policies are, why something’s being pursued, or what the update it on this,” he added.
Spicer suggested that Trump wasn’t the only one to feel as he did.
