Wednesday morning at Trump Tower, President-elect Donald Trump held his first extended media gathering in over five-and-a-half months – in Trump’s words, a “general news conference”. As such, it was the opposite of the typical Obama White House press conference, where the principal usually fielded about a half-dozen-or-so questions during the allotted time. Obama’s speeches were refined; his press conferences workmanlike. Make the Bush 43 statistic – four solo press conferences a year – the over-under. Perhaps as a sign of good will, Trump will leave some of his books in the White House briefing room.
