The last briefing from a White House press secretary occurred 245 days ago and will not resume until President Trump gives the go-ahead.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who has yet to give a formal briefing since starting her job in July, told CNN Business in an email that the decision about whether to hold them falls on Trump. She said that she will “hold a press briefing when the president wants me to.”
“That is ultimately his decision,” Grisham said. “The briefings, which are meant to inform the public, were becoming a spectacle.”
“In addition, the president himself answers questions on a weekly basis, as do I and my entire team,” she said. “We've also had briefings at the podium with subject matter experts, and to be honest, many [in the] press have told me that is more helpful.”
In September, Grisham said on Fox News that reporters were using the press briefings to “get famous.”
The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the “podium” much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular certain members of the press. I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 22, 2019
