Trump Attacks, Then Says He Relies On Press To Vet Nominees
The president blamed the “LameStream Media” earlier in the day for his decision to withdraw Rep. John Ratcliffe’s nomination for director of national intelligence.

Trump withdrew his nomination for Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) to take the position, tweeting on Friday that Ratcliffe would be “treated very unfairly by the LameStream Media,” and that it would be “miserable... to deal with these people.”

But later that day, speaking to reporters outside the White House, Trump said he likes when the press vets his nominees.

“Well no, you vet for me,” Trump said when a reporter asked about the White House’s vetting process. “I like when you vet, no, no, you vet. I think the White House is a great vetting process. You vet for me. When I give a name, I give it out to the press, and you vet for me.”

“A lot of times, you do a very good job, not always,” he continued. “If you take a look at it, the vetting process for the White House is very good, but you’re part of the vetting process, you know? I give out a name to the press, and they vet for me. We save a lot of money that way. But in the case of John, I really believe that he was being treated very harshly and very unfairly.”

 

Ratcliffe was Trump’s pick to replace outgoing DNI Director Dan Coats, whose resignation Trump announced on Sunday.

 

Ratcliffe faced criticism for his lack of experience in national security.

Trump has withdrawn at least 62 nominees for government positions, Politico reported, noting that former White House officials have blamed this on his lack of judgment and impulsiveness.
