In response to the ever-changing stories that have been coming out of the White House, President Trump tweeted today that his staff can’t be counted on to be accurate. Most Administrations carefully craft a message to the important news of the day, and staffers are instructed to keep to the narrative. While the Trump administrative staff can seem to stick to the same story, the President cannot. Apparently not caring what message his staff has already tried to promote, Trump seems fine going rogue and putting his own spin on whatever situation is at hand. Today he basically said don’t trust what the staff says because I may say something different.
As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!….
