Trump’s handlers are making sure he speaks to the public through the carefully controlled medium of videos, not press conferences where he’d have to answer questions from the press. Apparently Reince Priebus tried to scuttle Trump’s meeting with the New York Times, apparently out of fear of what Trump might say.
I think the people around Trump know perfectly well he isn’t fit to be president. They are going to channel Trump in the direction of the things he likes and does best — the reality show aspects of presidential power — and run things behind the scenes. The Republican power brokers could hardly have hoped for better.
