Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker, is backing Trump on ending future press briefings, stating that liberal media is being “dishonest” in their opposition of the POTUS.
“What they ought to do is get out of all this junk, they ought to focus on the big goals, they ought to report to the nation on the big goals, ignore all these reporters, close down the press room, send the reporters off [to Starbucks],” Gingrich said on Fox News’s “Hannity.”
“Maybe say to the American people – send in your questions, we’ll take the best five questions and we’ll answer them by name.”
Trump on Friday suggested he might cancel “all future ‘press briefings'” in the name of accuracy after his administration struggled to explain the firing of FBI Director James Comey this week.
“Donald Trump is not the chief entertainer of the United States. He’s not the chief wrestling match with the elite media. He is the president of the United States,” Gingrich told host Sean Hannity on Friday night.
