Trump threatens to cancel briefings; Spicer back at podium

Freda Brock | 13 May, 2017, 15:55

He agreed with Pirro's assertion that he moves so quickly, his communications staff can not keep up.

TRUMP, complaining after his contradiction of the explanation given by his surrogates and press representatives about the decision to fire FBI Director JAMES COMEY was noted by the press, tweeted, "it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy!".

Jeff Mason, the president of the White House Correspondents' Association, responded to the president's tweets, saying that the White House briefings and press conferences "conducted in full view of our republic's citizens, is clearly in line with the spirit of the First Amendment".

"So what do we do about that?"

At first, the administration said that Rosenstein "made the recommendation, the president made a swift and decisive action and let Comey go". Trump's tweet has inspired new questions about whether he recorded a potentially-groundbreaking discussion the two of them held together. "I think it's a good idea", he answered. "First of all, you have a level of hostility that's incredible, and its very unfair". He noted that White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a "lovely young woman" and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer - "you know Sean Spicer", he said - is a "wonderful human being".

He declined to answer directly when Pirro asked whether Spicer will continue as press secretary. "Will he be tomorrow?" "He's doing a good job, but he gets beat up", Trump said of Spicer.

No other horses threatened him down the stretch and Velazquez furiously pumped his right arm as they crossed the finish line. He made jockey John Velazquez say later, "I was very happy when I started down the lane and I felt the way he was running".

"Will he be there tomorrow?" Later, the president and his advisers said Mr Trump had planned to fire Mr Comey since taking office.

Reached by phone Friday afternoon, Spicer sounded confident about his position.

He questioned whether his administration should cancel all future press briefings and, instead, replace them with written responses to questions, "for the sake of accuracy".

As in Friday's briefing, Spicer refused to commit when asked if the White House would keep the daily briefing.

"The President reiterated his confidence in his press team earlier today", he told CNNMoney.
