Former Speaker Newt Gingrich is correct on all accounts. President-elect Donald Trump shouldn’t think he has to hold a news conference to these media leeches. The old way of doing things was the President would be expected to give interviews but times have changed.
Trump can go to the people on his own, going around the media which will piss them off but who cares. They are not trying to inform the American people, in my opinion, they are hurting us with their biased reporting.
From The Hill:
Newt Gingrich on Tuesday said President-elect Donald Trump shouldn’t feel any obligation to hold news conferences…
“The news media so totally disgraced itself in this election, if I were Trump I would just say no,” Gingrich, a Trump adviser, said during an interview with USA Today’s Capital Download. “And if the White House Correspondents’ Association doesn’t like it, I’d say, ‘Fine, disband.'”
On Monday, Trump blasted CNN, saying the network is “so embarrassed” by “their support” of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and has gotten worse since the election.
Gingrich said Trump should continue tweeting, but he should have an “editorial board in-between the first draft and sending it.”
“But he shouldn’t give it up, and he shouldn’t give up being Donald Trump,” Gingrich said.
