Chris Wallace on Trump’s Russia Tweet: Why Is He ‘Breathing Oxygen Into a Story He Doesn’t Like’?

On Fox’s The First 100 Days tonight, Chris Wallace said that it’s not “politically wise” for President Trump to be tweeting so much in response to the reports on Jeff Sessions‘ meetings with the Russian ambassador last year.

Trump today tweeted out photos of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi with Russian officials to accuse them of hypocrisy.

Wallace told Martha MacCallum the tweets may feel good for the president, but “he needs message discipline.” (It was Wallace, after all, who reacted to Trump’s speech to the joint session of Congress by saying “Tonight, Donald Trump became the president.”)

He said all Trump is doing here is “breathing oxygen into a story he doesn’t like,” which is very counterproductive.
