‘Justice’ Preview: Trump Says It’s a ‘Good Idea’ to End Daily Press Briefings
President Donald Trump doubled down on his threat to end the White House daily press briefing, calling it a ”good idea.”
In an interview with Jeanine Pirro that will air Saturday at 9pm ET on ”Justice,” Trump reiterated what he had tweeted this morning.
”You don’t mean that,” Pirro responded.
”Unless I have them every two weeks and do it myself, we won’t have them. I think it’s a good idea,” he answered.
Trump said there’s an ”incredible” level of hostility from reporters toward Press Secretary Sean Spicer and his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. He agreed with Pirro’s assertion that he moves so quickly, his communications staff cannot keep up.
He declined to answer directly when Pirro asked whether Spicer will continue as press secretary.
”He’s doing a good job, but he gets beat up,” said Trump.
