President Trump’s New Demeanor
President Trump was in a meeting about health care on Friday, March 10, 2017, which was held in the White House’s Roosevelt Room. During the conversation, Trump did something that Obama never did: he listened.
Trump’s presidential style is coming together, despite what he critics believe. Since Donald Trump stepped into the White House, the tweets have declined and the various news spats have also slowed down.
Trump has even turned down media opportunities so he can get to work.
Trump Cancels Media Opportunities
Last week, President Trump canceled a few media opportunities, such as ESPN’s invitation to create a playful NCAA tournament bracket, which is something Obama seized each and every year.
Beyond these cancellations, he has also stopped arguing with reporters when they shout falsehoods in his direction. Instead, he turns the other cheek and waits for a more distinguished question to answer.
Trump has won, and he knows this.
Trump Listens To Varied Opinions
Without these easy stories, the media has been forced to actually cover the news. Rather than continue to force feed Americans news on WikiLeaks, the media has had to report on Trump’s new plan to replace Obamacare, and other executive orders.
Trump has also begun to take a more personal touch on his major decisions. The President and Vice President Pence have been holding “listening sessions” with various education, small business, and bank leaders to discuss change.
With these varied minds, Trump takes in information and opinions on topics such as economic news, the administration’s legislative agenda, tax reform, new jobs, and the replacement of the failed Obamacare.
Soon President Trump will head out into the country for a series of rallies meant to showcase his plans to repeal Obamacare. Trump will put a hometown pressure on Congress to repeal-and-replace the failed system.
It doesn’t hurt that the 2018 midterm elections are just around the corner.
