Incoming Trump Press Secretary Sean Spicer on the Media: ‘Business as Usual Is Over’
At Breitbart by Jeff Poor --
On Thursday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s syndicated radio show, incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer told listeners to expect “business as usual” to come to an end regarding how President-elect Donald Trump will communicate with the American people and the media.
Spicer said it will be more about using other means and giving the American people a better product for their money.
Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of “The Hugh Hewitt Show):
HUGH HEWITT: Do you expect him to keep up a regular and as energetic a series of press conferences as previous presidents? Do you expect him to be more or less engaged than previous presidents with that setting, that formal East Room setting sort of thing?
SEAN SPICER: Yeah, that’s a good question, because I think the thing that you’ve seen with Donald Trump is that he doesn’t, he doesn’t look to the past and say I’ve got to conform to these precedents. He figures out what’s the best way. And so maybe we do, you know, a series of press conferences, but maybe we do some town hall, you know, Facebook town halls. Maybe we go out and solicit input from Twitter. I don’t, I mean, the answer is we’re looking at a lot of things.
