President Donald Trump, who arrived at his Palm Beach resort on Wednesday to spend the last Christmas of his presidency in Mar-a-Lago, has found what journalists call a “way to stick to them” – by setting an appointment for White House reporters. He called at 7:30 a.m. the day before Christmas. .
The daily guidance and press schedule for Thursday contains a note that says: “As the holiday season approaches, President Trump will continue to work tirelessly for the American people,” adding that his schedule includes “many meetings and calls.” This even comes at a time when there is no public duty for the outgoing president, prompting reactions from White House correspondents.
“With Trump arriving in Mar-a-Lago for the holidays, his daily guidelines for tomorrow include this unusual note,” chirp Rebecca Ballhouse, White House Correspondent for The Wall Street Journal.
“One way to stick to the WH press that he hates is 7:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve for a currently blank public schedule (sic),” Maggie Haberman BooksWhite House Correspondent for The New York Times.
Zek Miller, the White House correspondent for the Associated Press, echoed the same sentiment, Adding That early call time “signifies golf”.
Mr Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen in an interview with MSNBC He said There is a good chance that the president will stay in Florida until the elections are settled.
I wouldn’t be shocked if there was no concession letter at all. My theory is that at Christmas time he goes to Mar-a-Lago. I think it will stay there during the inauguration. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t attend the inauguration,” Cohen said.
