Sarah Huckabee Sanders hints at ending White House press briefings

Sarah Huckabee Sanders hints at ending White House press briefings

On Tuesday he tweeted that she was treated "rudely" and "inaccurately" by members of the press.

"Look, we're not going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly not on matters that we're going to leave in the hands of a much higher authority". Trump said. "Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!"

This marks the longest time since a briefing has taken place. Sanders has not provided an on-camera briefing for more than a month, including the duration of the partial government shutdown.


Not exactly true, but that's what we're used to out of this White House. A number of high-profile USA media figures, including The New York Times' White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, TV news presenter Mika Brzezinski and former press secretary Sean Spicer were also among those who slammed the controversial speech.

Sims recounts the first day in the White House when Trump was railing about news reports that the crowd at his inauguration had been relatively small.

The afternoon briefing has been a staple of cable news schedules the past few administrations and the sight of Sanders' predecessor Sean Spicer at the podium was an enduring image of the early Trump administration.


Trump has been taking questions from reporters, sometimes multiple times a day, while Sanders and Trump aide Kellyanne Conway have been fielding questions in unscheduled appearances before cameras as they enter and exit the West Wing. "We're more than happy to take questions but we think that there should be a certain level of decorum and a certain level of honesty and responsibility that comes with that".

The measure is based on the total number of interviews, short Q&As and news conferences he has held compared to his predecessors. This month she had a heated exchange with Fox News' Chris Wallace, who pushed back on her supporting the Trump administration's false claims that thousands of terrorists have entered the us through the border with Mexico.

But that access has been effectively traded off with the growing absence of daily briefings, which previous administrations dating back to the Clinton administration generally utilized to offer official responses to major stories, as well as to transmit some of the more mundane and process-oriented messaging in specific policy areas. The president has repeatedly said that he believed it was a "hoax" and questioned the science behind the United Nations report about the dangers of carbon emissions.
