Trump Repeats Threat to Cancel WH Press Briefings, Won’t Commit to Spicer’s Future

Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro sat down with President Donald Trump for an interview and there were a couple of big revelations that were released this afternoon.

In response to his threat to cancel daily White House press briefings, the president stated that it is “true” that he is too active for his press shop and that the solution may just be for him to hold a press conference every two weeks.

Related to that, he was then asked about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s future, and he wouldn’t necessarily commit to him even being there tomorrow.

“Is Spicer your press secretary today and tomorrow?” Pirro asked. “Will he be tomorrow?”

“He’s doing a good job, but he gets beat up,” the president responded. When pressed by Pirro on whether he’ll be there the following day, Trump merely noted that Spicer’s “been there since the beginning.”

It was reported earlier this week that White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was being “evaluated” when she took over for Spicer this week at the podium, suggesting that Trump could be looking to make a switch.

This all comes on the heels of reports that the president was extremely angry over the way his communications team handled the news of his firing FBI Director James Comey, even though he gave them very little forewarning.
