The US President Donald Trump told that he ordered White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders “ not to bother” with press instructions because he trusts that reporters are audacious to her and that most members of the media will not shield the administration fairly. Press orientation, which used to be a daily happening, has become a scarcity in the Trump administration in White House. Sanders has not presented on-camera guidelines for more than a month, including the entire period of the partial government shutdown.

Trump posted in Twitter, “The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the ‘podium’ much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular, certain members of the press ”. He added, “ I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News”!

The President of the White House Correspondents Association, Olivier Knox told in a statement that the rational move of the Trump administration “ sets a terrible precedent”.

Knox told in a statement, “ Being able to question the press secretary or other senior government officials publicly helps the news media tell Americans what their most powerful representatives are doing in their name”. He added, “ While other avenues exist to obtain information, the robust, public back-and-forth we’ve come to expect in the James A. Brady briefing room helps to highlight that no one in a healthy republic is above being questioned.”

The tweet of Trump came briefly after the representative of White House Hogan Gidley was asked about the subject.
