The New York Times on Saturday quoted the head of the National Rifle Association, Wayne LaPierre, saying “that’s the way it’s going to be.”
The Times also quoted a source within the Obama administration who said that “the president believes we’re on the right track” and that “everything is moving in the right direction.”
The president said the media is trying to divide Americans.
“The media is attacking the president.
They’re trying to take away the president’s ability to get the job done.
They’ve got to stop that,” the president said.
The White House press secretary said in a press briefing on Saturday that the administration is “not going to engage in a witch hunt.
The president’s job is to get things done, and that includes a fair and impartial investigation.”
The White, the administration and the press secretary spoke in a series of tweets on Saturday, the day after Trump said that he believed the media was trying to “take away” his ability to do his job.
White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham said the president has “the utmost respect for the press and the fact that the press covers him fairly and accurately.”
“But, in the past, there have been times when there have not been good journalists covering the president,” she said.
“And so we are going to continue to put the press in the most rigorous environment we can.
White House spokeswoman Grishamp said the administration’s media strategy includes a commitment to transparency and open government. “
But the president does not think the media should be used as a political tool to attack him.”
White House spokeswoman Grishamp said the administration’s media strategy includes a commitment to transparency and open government.
“As President, the President has made it clear that he expects journalists to follow a strict code of ethics and that he will not tolerate the misuse of his office,” Grishamps tweeted.
The press secretary also took to Twitter on Saturday to say the White House “has a number of policies and practices” that prevent the press from engaging in partisan attacks on the president and his administration.
The policy, which Grishams has also outlined, includes the requirement that the White house be open for public tours of the White Houses offices, as well as the use of the term “presidential day.”
The new rules came on the same day that President Trump signed a law that requires the government to publish a list of the top ten most-cited stories of the day on the WhiteHouse.gov website.
That law, which takes effect on July 31, includes a clause that says “The White House must publish the list of stories that are most cited on the President’s official website on a daily basis.”
