The New York Daily News reports:
President Trump privately admitted he shouldn’t have sent former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to argue over the crowd size at his inauguration, according to a new book. The commander-in-chief reportedly fumed over reports and photos comparing his crowd to the one eight years earlier for President Obama.
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the President, initially tried to calm the President from sending Spicer out, Fox News’ Howard Kurtz wrote in a new book, “Media Madness: Donald Trump, The Press, And The War Over The Truth.”
“She invoked a line that she often employed when Trump was exercised over some slight,” Kurtz wrote. “‘You’re really big,’ she said. ‘That’s really small.’” After Spicer’s confrontational statements, Kurtz wrote, Trump made a “rare admission” that he slipped up. “You were right,” Trump is quoted in the book telling his advisers. “I shouldn’t have done that.”
