New White House Press Secretary and Communications Director Stephanie Grisham said Monday that the president put a stop to daily press briefings because the media wasn't 'being good to his people'.

"The robust, public back-and-forth we've come to expect in the James S. Brady briefing room helps highlight that no one in a healthy republic is above being questioned", Knox said.

"He is his own best spokesperson, that's true, and the most successful president in history as all of the media knows", Grisham responded.

Back in January, after former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders significantly cut back her facetime with reporters, Trump posted to Twitter that he had told her "not to bother" because "the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately".

Grisham told Fox News that the daily briefings had become "a lot of theater", and that there were reporters who were taking advantage to become famous. "I think that a lot of reporters were doing it to... get famous". "I mean, they're all getting famous off of this presidency and so I think it's great what we're doing now".

Grisham didn't name names, but CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta has emerged as a household name for constantly sparring with members of the Trump administration when they are made available to the press. He has since written a book about his time covering Trump.

CNN's April Ryan, another White House reporter, also scuffled with Spicer and Sanders on a regular basis and wrote a book about it.

"I think that it's so important that, you know, the spokesperson for the president can adequately speak to his policies and get his message out there, and I think the president saw that that's not what was happening", Grisham continued.

After Ms. Grisham took over, she said she'd be open to reinstating press briefings but said it's "up to the president".

Grisham went on to complain to Fox & Friends that the press "weren't being good to his [Trump's] people".
