CNN and MSNBC, two very liberal news networks have been trying to call out Trump for his lack of press conferences. It makes sense, since the media is purposefully twisting everything he says and does and slanders him and calls him a racist and sexist on a daily basis. The real reason they want Trump is for the ratings. Every time Trump is on TV, they get great ratings, and now Trump let them know they won’t be getting his ratings any time soon.
Sean Spicer, Trump’s press secretary spoke on behalf of Trump saying that Trump will be communicating with America on his own terms through social media and not through the biased liberal media.
“Do you expect him to keep up a regular and as energetic a series of press conferences as previous presidents?” asked Hugh Hewitt in an interview.
“I think the thing that you’ve seen with Donald Trump is that he doesn’t, he doesn’t look to the past and say I’ve got to conform to these precedents. He figures out what’s the best way. And so maybe we do, you know, a series of press conferences, but maybe we do some town hall, you know, Facebook town halls. Maybe we go out and solicit input from Twitter. I don’t, I mean, the answer is we’re looking at a lot of things. But there’s no question that you see through the platforms that exist right now, whether it’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, he’s closing in like 45 million people that he can have a conversation with,” explained Spicer.
“There are also some new opportunities that we can be utilizing to bring more people into the process and have a conservation with the American people and not just limit it through the filter of the mainstream media,” explained Spicer. “Hugh. Business as usual is over.” CNN and MSNBC will never reach the ratings they had with Trump ever again. Will Trump start a new precedent on how the president will communicate with the people?
