JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Wednesday that “we’re going to talk about” reinstating the daily press briefing, but that it’s ultimately up to President Donald Trump.

“The President also, he’s so accessible, so right now I think that’s good enough,” she said to Sinclair’s Eric Bolling in a segment of “America This Week,” adding that “I don’t know what any of the press could complain about.”

Grisham’s predecessor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, essentially eradicated the daily press briefing, preferring to occasionally huddle with reporters in driveways of the White House.
