Trump dropping daily Sean Spicer press briefings: report


For the first 100 days of the Trump administration, they've been must-see TV, but according to a report by Politico, the White House press briefings may soon not be so daily.

The change is supposed to happen after President Trump gets back from his first foreign trip. And word is when Trump returns, the briefings will be significantly cut back.

"He is no longer expected to do a daily, on-camera briefing after Trump's foreign trip, which begins Friday, the officials said," according to Politico.

There could even be a new face behind the podium soon. One White House official told Politico Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will likely be doing the briefings more often.

Trump teased ending White House press briefings when he Tweeted earlier in the week, "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings" and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???"

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich urged the president to end press briefings saying, "I am personally offended by the American news media. I think it is destructive and disgusting. It is a danger to the country right now."

Gingrich said the move would "Just say to the American people, you get to choose."
