It’s hard to believe, but just a few days ago, we weren’t even talking about Donald Trump and the Trump administration.
For more than a year, there was a steady drip of reports about the new administration’s ties to Russia, allegations that President Trump had attempted to interfere in the election by hiring a Russian lawyer to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton.
The president has denied the allegations, and it’s been a long-running saga that has led to a series of probes and lawsuits by lawmakers, journalists and others.
Now, we’re talking about the Trump team.
For the first time in a while, we can finally get a clear look at the president’s true team: the team he’s working with to win the election.
“It’s hard for the mainstream media to say, ‘This is what’s happening,’ but the president is actually working behind the scenes with the people that he’s talking to,” said Jonathan Karl, the former New York Times reporter who spent the last year interviewing dozens of people on the Trump campaign.
One thing’s for sure: Trump has done his best to get as much information out of the media as he possibly can. “
He’s putting his people in place, he’s giving them access to the White House, he doesn’t want to lose the people he’s running against, and he wants to use the people to win elections.”
One thing’s for sure: Trump has done his best to get as much information out of the media as he possibly can.
The press is so understaffed that some reporters are afraid to speak to reporters or publish their own stories, while others are terrified to go out in public at all.
“The president has not done his homework,” Karl said.
“So far, there’s not a lot of substance to what the president says, and I think the media needs to get its act together.”
Karl and a number of other reporters are already planning to start their own projects in the coming weeks, and they’re confident the president will do the same.
“I think that Trump has had to go through a process of going to the very people who are trying to take away his power and take away their freedom of speech,” Karl added.
“Now he’s trying to get the word out.”
Karl is not the only one who thinks the Trump presidency has been compromised.
For a lot, it’s the press’s job to protect the president.
“If you want to understand what the real problem is with this administration, you have to understand that the president has basically been using the press as his tool,” said Mark Leibovich, the founder of the news site Mediaite.
“People who are looking for dirt on him, they want to see it, they don’t want their stories discredited.
So if you’re an outlet, it has to do something.
The media will be the last person to stand up to him.” “
In fact, I think Trump is really good at this, because if you can’t have it, don’t say it.
The media will be the last person to stand up to him.”
The new media environment has also made it harder for the president to defend himself.
“Trump is now the president of the world, and the press corps is his adversary,” Leibvich said.
It was a similar situation when President Obama was in office.
“We had a media crisis that we couldn’t fix.
We couldn’t make the president accountable for the problems in the press,” Karl noted.
“They were so scared of him, and then when they realized that, they started telling him what he wanted to hear.”
The Trump administration, on the other hand, has a far more aggressive approach to the media.
Karl noted that a number new outlets have been created, including one that is staffed by the new White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who will be taking over for Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who resigned in February amid an ethics scandal.
“That’s the kind of news the White, the Trump White House has been really proud of,” Karl remarked.
“Every day we see a new media outlet, a new news outlet, and people are going to see the new president take action and start using that platform as well.”
So, what can the media do?
Karl said he expects the media to be much more proactive in the days leading up to the November election, focusing on covering the topics that matter to voters.
“You can’t let the president get away with something like that,” Karl continued.
“For example, you can say he lied about his birthplace, and if that’s not true, you’ll need to find something else that he was born in.
So it’s going to be very important for the media, and for the Trump people, to be there for the people, not just to cover what he’s doing and say, Hey, we saw what he said, but also to
