President Trump “hyped his forthcoming full interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, excerpts of which shook allies and opponents alike this week when the president revealed he would take foreign help if offered in the lead up to the 2020 election,” Politico reports.
“In a Twitter thread posted Saturday night, Trump said he had a positive experience with Stephanopoulos, adding that he thought other news outlets misinterpreted his comments. The president also said that he would consider doing more interviews with network news.”
“Trump’s interview with Stephanopoulos, which will be broadcast in full on Sunday, comes as his reelection campaign prepares to launch in the coming week. Trump’s tentative plan to do more network interviews and capture ‘earned media’ — where a politician garners free publicity from media hits rather than through traditional campaign ad buys — hints at a strategy he used frequently during the 2016 campaign and also as president.”Save to Favorites
