Trump's new press secretary briefs: I will never lie to you

Kylie McInnney did something Friday that her predecessor in the White House never did: she did James S. Brady briefed reporters from behind the lecture in the narrow confines of the meeting room.

McEnany assumed the position less than a month before President Trump's fourth press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, who elected to work behind the curtain, saying that Trump was his best spokesman.

McEnney, who earned a degree from Harvard Law School, rose to fame with his defense of Trump on the television news show.

At Friday's press conference, McEnany said he expected traditional press sessions to be held more frequently in the meeting room and promised to prioritize veracity in his role.

"I will never lie to you. I have a say on this," he told reporters.

Prior to taking charge as the White House's chief spokesperson, McEnany was Trump's reunion campaign and Republican National Committee spokesman. Trump's new chief, Mark Meadows, moved him to the White House in a review of the communications store.

In the big newspaper, McEnany addressed the administration's coronavirus response and sexual harassment allegations against Trump and his 2020 White House rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

He responded to questions on Friday about the president's tweet that armed protesters who attacked the Michigan Capitol sought to talk to Governor Gretchen Whitmer "they were very nice people" and that the governor should "give a little and extinguish the fire" . "

McInnney said Trump encouraged protesters to act within the limits of the law and practice social distance, which many, according to videos and photos from the incident, did not do.

Trump's first press secretary, Sean Spicer, became the target of a late-night comedy show due to its flamboyance near daily briefings. Under her next spokesperson, Sarah Sanders, the frequency of briefings decreased.

Trump has been his own spokesman for the coronovirus epidemic, and for weeks he reported to the press almost daily. In March, speaking about his team's performance in dealing with the crisis, Trump said his White House had "acted poorly in relations with the press."

"The only thing we haven't done well is a good press. We've done a fantastic job, but it's not appreciated," he said.

Last week, Trump said he wanted to stop his daily briefing, but continued to answer questions from reporters almost daily.

In the midst of the coronovirus crisis, one of the first measures for Meadows, who took over as chief of staff, was to shake off press operations. He gave lead roles to two of his life partners, Ben Williamson and Alyssa Farah, and brought in McEnany.

McInnie's debut in the meeting room was announced in an evening tweet by Trump's director of social media Dan Scavino, who was also picked up by Meadows in a press store review.

The room, known for its royal royal chairs, will look slightly different from McEnany than its predecessors. The White House Correspondents Association is wobbling on seats assigned to improve social disturbances and reduce the risk of the virus spreading, leaving many vacant seats in the space usually just standing.

McEnany was seen in the press room on Thursday and asked if she would resume the tradition of briefing. "Never say never, never," she replied.
