The White House is ‘fiercely protective of the White House’

Posted February 19, 2018 09:56:52A White House spokesperson says that the president does not “have a relationship with the media,” which the spokesperson says is an inaccurate description of the president.

“He’s very protective of his relationship with his team, but he doesn’t have a relationship,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Earnest says that Trump is “very comfortable” with the news media.

“I think what you’ve seen from the president is he’s a big believer in having the press be very, very loyal to the administration, and he’s been very, much so,” Earnest added.
