The Vice-Secretary of Science Minister Hogan Gidley over the weekend complained about the coverage of the general media by President Donald Trump and expressed his opinion that "it would be so nice if we had a complicated, compatible media."
During an interview with Fox News & # 39; Howard Kurtz on Mediabuzz Sunday Gidley condemned the latest coverage of the president's hostile meeting with Speaker of House Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday, resulting in the Democrat leader accusing him to have a "temper tantrum for all of us to see."
"" The president asked you during the day and Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne [Conway] to guarantee that he did not throw a mood attack in the meeting with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. You said you weren't at that meeting, but you talked about another meeting. There have been all kinds of media aspirations … Was it awkward for any counselor to need the boss? "Kurtz asked Gidley.
"Absolutely not. Especially if you are facing 92 percent negative news coverage against you. We need to guarantee him all the time. It's great how the media covers what he does what he says in a slope that does Everything negative, no matter how positive the subject may be, "Gidley replied before specifying that he was referring to" a majority of journalists. "[1
Gidley explained that this is the reason why Trump "takes everything directly to America" through his statements on Twitter.
Trump allegedly stormed up a white house meeting with Pelosi and Schumer on Wednesday hours after Pelosi accused him of joining a "coverup" of his administration's stonewalling of House Democratic efforts to obtain documents concerning their investigations into the President's personal and company sponsored.
The president went to Rose Garden after leaving the heated meeting to tell journalists his version of the events and further demand Democrats drop their probes into him.
"I came here to make a meeting on infrastructure with Democrats, didn't really think they wanted to do infrastructure or anything but to investigate, and I just saw Nancy Pelosi just before our meeting made a statement that "we believe the US president is involved in a coverage." It turns out I am the most transparent president, probably in the history of this country, "the president said, explaining his unexpected exit from the meeting. "Instead of happily attending a meeting, I agree to look at people who have just said that I made a coverup."
After Pelosi, his democratic colleagues told that Trump had a "temperamental fellow for all of us to see" In a letter sent later in the evening, the president defended his behavior in a tweet and asked several members of his team to to stand for him during a press conference on Thursday morning.
"I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing they would say I was furious as they always do with their partner, the fake news media. Well, so many stories if the meeting still uses the Rage story – Fake & Corrupt Press! "Trump tweeted.
Kurtz noted that the media about the incident gave "both sides" of the story. "How's the fake and corrupt press?" He asked Gidley.
"The cause of the language they used and they say things like" he was furious "or" he stormed out. "It's editorial words. You can say he left the meeting, you can say he went out of the meeting," replied Gidley.
"Abandoned abruptly. That's fair," Kurtz said.
"Define abruptly," argued Gidley. "He gave his message and left the meeting, there was no time limit in advance."
