Spicer hasn’t talked Russia meddling with Trump

The White House also planned to give fewer on-camera briefings overall, and have the president take more questions from reporters during foreign trips.The White House is to change the roles in the communications office, as this is meant to be a fresh start since various communication mishaps since Trump took office.The Associated Press reported that Mr Spicer has reached out to his possible successors and candidates for the role of communications director.As you can imagine, numerous journalists who cover the White House press briefings aren’t happy about being banned from recording them. “If he’s not going to come out and answer the questions, and if they’re not going to do this on camera or audio, why are we even having these briefings or these gaggles in the first place?”President Donald Trump reacting to poor reviews of Spicer’s performance at the job tweeted about doing away with the briefings all together earlier this year. Spicer intends to stop appearing in press briefings altogether.He is in one of the most high-profile and high-pressure positions in the Trump White House – which has led to him also being one of the most criticized and routinely mocked members of the administration.Spicer said he did not know if Trump had seen any legislative text of the bill, but did confirm the president had a discussion with Senate GOP leadership on Tuesday and said members of the administration were giving input on the bill.David Martosko, the US political editor of London’s Daily Mail, who covered the president’s campaign, has also interviewed for senior communications jobs, according to a person familiar with the interviews who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private deliberations.Mr. Spicer, whose combative exchanges with reporters at daily briefings has become legendary, has been easing out of the briefing job for a month. “It just feels like we’re sort of slowly but surely being dragged into a new normal in this country where the president of the United States is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions”.Kimberly Guilfoyle, a co-host of Fox News’ “The Five”, last month said she had conversations with the Trump administration about taking over the role, but apparently has not been formally interviewed.
