Trump May Take Spicer Off the Briefings

Then-FBI Director James Comey testifies at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on May 3
Politicorecently quoted senior White House sources it said were "familiar with the president's thinking" as saying that Spicer would no longer be doing a daily on-camera briefing once Trump returns from a foreign diplomatic trip that begins this week.
Guilfoyle had been in the running for the job after the presidential election, but lost out to Spicer, the former spokesman for the Republican National Committee.
Officials said Spicer is expected to stay in the White House, "but have less exposure", in the words of one official. According to the New York Timesreport on Friday that Trump had recommended Guilfoyle for the press secretary job in exchanges with political associates.
Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has appeared at more briefings in recent weeks, and Trump himself refused to confirm if Spicer will have the job "tomorrow". "I think I enjoy a very straightforward and authentic, very genuine relationship, one that's built on trust and integrity, and I think that's imperative for success in that position".
Even as Trump reassured advisers like Spicer that their jobs were safe on Monday, he told other advisers that he knew he needed to make big changes but did not know which direction to go, or whom to select.
What's more, another official said that the Trump administration is planning on reducing its number of televised briefings in general, which reflects a broader dissatisfaction with his communications team on the president's part. Last week, Trump threatened to cancel all future press briefings "for the sake of accuracy" in an early morning tweet.
The move would come amid a whirlwind 10 days that saw Trump fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, reportedly share classified intelligence with Russian officials who visited the White House, and now faces the prospect of widely respected special prosecutor, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller, investigating possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
As for those hoping for Fox News anchor Kimberly Guilfoyle to join the administration, a splash of cold water: per an official, those rumors are "not real".
Still, it is a bit jarring to see the current White House press secretary afforded so little respect by a Fox News host who generally covers the Trump administration favorably.
The questionable bush decor grew from Spicer's infamous encounter with journalists after President Donald Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. "Spicer" then is seen riding his electric podium from Washington, D.C., to a golf course in New Jersey to speak with Trump about how he promises he will "talk better".
