President-elect Donald Trump is no friend to media outlets. He hasn’t even been sworn in yet, and he’s talking about booting the press corp from the White House. He wants to put them in a different building near the White House. They could either end up in the White House Conference Center or the Old Executive building nearby.
Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer made it seem like just a logistics issue:
“There’s been so much interest in covering a President Donald Trump. A question is: Is a room that has forty-nine seats adequate? When we had that press conference the other day, we had thousands of requests, and we capped it at four hundred. Is there an opportunity to potentially allow more members of the media to be part of this? That’s something we’re discussing.”
We have all seen the effects social media has on people’s opinions. We’ve all had to block people who post conservative things. A close relative of mine actually said that they don’t want to be associated with me because of this. We will have to fight Big Brother Trump and his followers for the next four years.
