The incoming White House press secretary repeated proposals, the Reporter can covers be shifted to a trump administration, from the executive mansion to the left of the White House Correspondents’ Association vowed Sunday to “fight” such a change.
“We decided to oppose any move would shield the President and his advisers during the examination of a on-the-spot-White House press corps,” WHCA President Jeff Mason said in a statement.
Mason, White House correspondent for Reuters, also said he would meet Sunday with incoming spokesman Sean Spicer in an attempt to “provide more clarity on exactly what you propose.”
“The briefing room is now open to all journalists who request access,” he said. “We support that and it will always be. The WHCA will fight to the briefing room and the West wing of the access to higher government open officials.”
Spicer Fox News’ “Media Buzz” hours earlier, the change of the potential, said is a reaction to the “off the chart”, the demand for trump to cover.
To be sure, the wealthy businessman and first-time-candidate unexpected White house the victory in the most exciting stories in American political history.
But Trump’s repeated arguments that much of the mainstream media is dishonest and unfair to him to consider that he would deny a Reporter that the traditional values of the White house.
“I think sometimes it’s scary,” Spicer told Fox News. “But change can be good, and good for the better.”
He said that thousands of reporters the White house have been looking for, the credentials for a briefing room, provides space for 49 people.
“Let’s try it for the first couple of weeks, maybe we will see what the demand is, to see what the benefits are,” Spicer. “The idea that you should be with more people, more transparent and have more accessibility than a welcome change.”
Spicer previously told Esquire magazine, another possibility was moving the press corps of the White house Conference Center, in the vicinity of Lafayette Square.
