For the first time in over a year, a spokesman for US President Donald Trump is giving a press conference again.
Spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany appears for media in the White House press room Friday afternoon (8:00 p.m. our time).
The usual press conferences were ended by former press chief Sarah Sanders. Her last performance, very briefly, was on March 11 last year. She left in June to make way for Stephanie Grisham, who recently left the field and became the spokesperson for Trump’s wife Melania again.
She did not do a single press meeting. McEnany was a spokeswoman for Trump’s election campaign, which is set to be reelected in November.
The resumption of the press conferences comes after a big fuss about the special, abruptly halted press meetings about Trump’s corona crisis personally.
At such a corona briefing last week, Trump wondered whether injecting disinfectants could help against the coronavirus. He received a lot of criticism, which the president lashed out at media.
The corona briefings often lasted two hours and increasingly developed into a platform for Trump to express his own theories about the virus and attack his political enemies.
