Since being appointed White House chief of staff, former General John Kelly has tried to establish formal access controls for the president, largely to keep false news and unsolicited advice away from Donald Trump. This is not functional. And this time, you have to thank Melania Trump, the president's wife.
According to Wall Street Journal reporter Michael C. Bender, the commander-in-chief's friends are using Melania Trump's family access to promote his pet theories and opinions It's much easier, he calls two Trump's anonymous friends , since Melania Trump moved to the White House.
"If I do not want to wait 24 hours to get a call from the president, getting to Melania is much easier," A friend of the Trump family boasted.
As expected, a spokeswoman for Melania Trump denied the report, describing it as "false news".
But Bender's story traces what other journalists reported about the White House and what some friends of Trump and his most prominent supporters have said to themselves: it's still extremely easy to give you half-hearted ideas, especially if you know his family.
