Washington was aghast at President Trump’s press conference. But many Americans will be thrilled. Of course, no one in DC gets that, which is why none of them took Trump seriously in the first place and were wrong about his appeal.
From the Washington Examiner:
President Trump Thursday abruptly revived the aggressive, freewheeling style he exhibited during the presidential campaign — boasting, attacking and complaining his way through an hour-long East Room news conference.
As he did during the campaign, Trump singled out reporters for particular scorn, touting them as embodying of everything that he saw wrong with Washington: elitism, dishonesty and insularity.
The impromptu press conference came just two days before the president will travel to Florida to attend the first campaign-style rally of his presidency.
Trump is expected to draw attention to the early accomplishments of his administration at the rally.
Trump lashed out at what he described as the media’s “dishonest” coverage of his administration and said the press has been resistant to his efforts to uproot a “very entrenched power structure” in Washington.
