Trump tweetstorms wash away White House press briefings

The US. intelligence community concluded months ago that Russian Federation was behind the hacking of Democratic groups and other activity in the 2016 election created to help elect Trump and hurt his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton's chances in the election. I think the briefing is one aspect of what we do. However, White House chief strategist, Steve Bannon, actually provided a reason as to why Spicer wasn't speaking to the media that often.

"I'm not hinting. I'll tell you about it over a very short period of time", Trump said at the time.

Spicer noted the administration has looked at data that suggests this White House has been more accommodating than past ones regarding requests to make President Donald Trump available for interviews.

During Tuesday's briefing - which the White House scheduled that morning after more criticism from the press - Mr Spicer defended the administration's new communications strategy.

Lewandowski said the White House is looking to give Spicer more help, but said insinuations it is part of a larger shake-up were overblown. The group will officially decide how to handle the president's request at its weekly meeting Wednesday, although people close to the caucus say a summit with the president is definitely "off the table".

The council is made up of CEOs from Silicon Valley's most prominent companies, as well as over a dozen White House officials. In a statement the White House said that these withdrawals had not affected the meeting and it will still take place.

"I have not sat down and asked him about his specific reaction to them, so I'd be glad to touch base and get back to you", he said.

The final report followed the USA intelligence community's initial statement in October 2016 that claimed senior Russian officials directed the hacking of Democratic Party organizations during the 2016 presidential campaign. Fallon, like Colbert, joked about Bannon's "Sean got fatter" statement, saying you know things are bad when Bannon thinks you've let yourself go.

Trump has repeatedly lashed out about investigations into the Russian interference, calling efforts to determine whether people in his campaign colluded with Russian officials a "witch hunt".

The Associated Press also reports that conservative radio host Laura Ingraham and Daily Mail editor David Martosko have been in talks to fill senior positions in the White House communications office. "Sean Spicer is doing multiple jobs, communications director, press secretary, etc".
