Trump’s Spokesman: ‘WH Press Conferences Will Be Off-Camera’ – Trump To Use Twitter For Policy Announcements
Incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer just previewed what the Trump administration might look like for the press, and it’s not pretty.
Once in the White House, President Donald Trump won’t answer to reporters. Instead, he will ramp up his tweeting to announce policy changes and executive orders, said incoming Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Spicer said the White House would still have regular White House press briefings, though noted that some of them “will be off camera.”
“Is that what we’re going to see?” Karl asked Spicer, who had previously said Trump’s use of Twitter will be a “really exciting part” of the Republican’s presidency.
“Sure. Why not?” the incoming press secretary answered.
“You know, with all due respect, I think it freaks the mainstream media out that he has this following of over 45-plus million people that follow him on social media, that he can have a direct conversation,” Spicer said.
Currently, the press secretary briefs the press nearly every weekday and those briefings are live-streamed and televised.
“You know what, the fact of the matter is that, when he tweets, he gets results,” Spicer said.

Of course! Trump is avoiding the press because he’s unable to speak in full sentences and he makes a fool of himself every time he takes a question.
