Shutdown Grinds On With Democrats Venting and Trump ‘All Alone’

Offices of congressional leaders who are responsible for negotiating with the president are shuttered as Trump remains at the White House after canceling a trip to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Abandoning the White House daily briefing is a big mistake

In the month of September, the "daily" White House briefing was held one time. That's not a typo, the press secretary went to the podium in the White House for an on-camera briefing once. Was there only one working day in September, a short month maybe? No, I checked -- 30 days like a normal September.

Joe Lockhart: Abandoning the White House daily briefing is a big mistake

Former White House press secretary Joe Lockhart notes that there was only one daily briefing at the White House in September. Perhaps the Trump administration thinks of the media as part of the Democratic Party, but ending the practice of daily briefings is a big mistake. The daily briefing is good for the White House and the reporters who cover it and, most importantly, it's good for the country.
