Donald Trump 'given daily dossier of positive news about himself'

Donald Trump 'given daily dossier of positive news about himself'”

This packet is separate from another folder Trump receives containing a summary of the day's headlines and news coverage, which has always been standard practice for presidents and lawmakers.

President Trump reportedly gets two folders of mood-boosting positive news coverage delivered to him a day, White House officials with knowledge of the documents told Vice News.

An article from Vice says that when they were still part of the White House, Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer competed with each other for the chance to give Trump a 20-25 page folder that was filled with good feedback about the job he's doing.

The positive notices are culled by staffers from the Republican National Committee.

No, the best part is that VICE also reports that before he was sacked, Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus-and Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who's on his way out-both wanted the privilege of delivering the folder to Trump.

Still, in the course of any given day, he finds time to tweet his thoughts, to watch cable news and to tweet his thoughts about cable news.

A Trump administration official who requested anonymity recalled that the only notes that staff received for the Trump packets were that they needed "to be more f**king positive". A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true. Beginning at 6am, three staff members start sending clips and screenshots to the White House Communications office, which then curate the clips, send positive headlines to journalists and prepare the propaganda document.

Spicer disputed Vice News's characterization of the folder.

"If we had prepared such a digest for Obama, he would have roared with laughter", Axelrod said.

Spicer told Vice that "While I won't comment on materials we share with the president, this is not accurate on several levels", but wouldn't specify any inaccuracies.

Nevertheless, the practice of reviewing television news screen shots is as unique to this president as is his habit of tweeting about what he sees on Fox News or CNN.

Former White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer of the Obama administration, a vocal Trump critic, took to social media to criticize the alleged dossiers. "You just have to pick up the paper".
