President-elect Donald Trump has never held back about his disdain for the press, regularly calling them liars and "the most dishonest people," raising questions about how Trump will treat the White House Press Corps. Most importantly, who will Trump choose to interact with reporters on a daily basis as press secretary?
Conservative talk radio host and Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham, a staunch Trump supporter throughout the 2016 GOP primary and general election, has been in meetings at Trump Tower for the position. Washington Times opinion editor and Fox News contributor Monica Crowley is also in the mix. Most recently, RNC Senior Strategist and Communications Director Sean Spicer is rumored to be at the top of the list for the job.
Here's a taste:
Spicer is capable of going toe-to-toe with the press to defend a message while also respecting the important role reporters are supposed to play in order to hold government accountable.
Katrina Pierson, who served as a Trump's national campaign spokeswoman, is also rumored to be in consideration.
