President Trump has a unique skill set when it comes to getting his message to the American people, wrangling the press and emerging from the effort unscathed. His dealings with journalists are precise and canny, indeed.
“Why are the relations between Donald Trump and the press so bad? There are two reasons. One is that Trump is a Republican, and the press consists overwhelmingly of Democrats. But the other reason is that Trump likes it this way, because when the press is constantly attacking him over trivialities, it strengthens his position and weakens the press,” writes Instapundit columnist Glenn Reynolds in USA Today. “Trump’s ‘outrageous’ statements and tweets aren’t the product of impulsiveness, but part of a carefully maintained strategy that the press is too impulsive to resist.”
The president, Mr. Reynolds says, “has more media experience than probably 99 percent of the people covering him.”
