Sen. Orrin Hatch talks media treatment of the president: Trump doesn’t need them
Sen. Orrin Hatch has served in the Senate throughout many presidencies. We discussed how the media treats the Trump administration, specifically. Here’s what he said:
SEN. HATCH: Trump doesn’t need them. He’s so media conscious and conscious and prone that he can develop his own. He’s such an interesting character. I have a lot of admiration for Donald Trump and yes, he’s flamboyant and yes, he irritates people and all that, but by Gosh, I think he’s done a terrific job as president.
BORIS: Do you think the media will report on those successes going forward? Will they be honest about it?
SEN. HATCH: I hope they wake up and realize that trump has been given us as a gift in many respects. Is he perfect heavens? No, he's gotten lots of flaws. Uh, and he's made a lot of mistakes, but by Gosh, he is president and he is trying to turn this country around and get it moving again.
And I have nothing but admiration for him.
Here’s the Bottom Line: The Trump administration believes that can be successful no matter what the media says. They are convinced that results on national security and the economy speak for themselves.
