Donald Trump Announces: No More Press Briefings Unless He Does Them Himself [WATCH HERE]

Donald Trump suggested in a new interview that he might get rid of White House press briefings unless he chooses to do them himself every two weeks.

Fox News released a clip of Trump’s interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro in which Trump stands by his tweet floating the possibility of canceling “all future” press briefings “for the sake of accuracy.”

Trump said:

“We don’t have press conferences, we just don’t have them, unless I have them every two weeks and I do them myself. I think it’s a good idea.”

White House press briefings are typically held daily and are conducted by the White House press secretary or deputy press secretary.

Trump slammed the daily White House press briefings as having “a level of hostility” that is “very unfair.” He also offered praise for Sean Spicer, but didn’t commit to Spicer’s job being secure.

“He’s a wonderful human being. He’s a nice man,” Trump said. “He’s been getting beat up.” But when asked if Spicer was safe in his job as press secretary, Trump demurred, saying “he’s been there from the beginning.”
