Spicer became the public face of the administration with the arrival of trump to power. He remembered the numerous picks with the press and was constantly the subject of attacks from journalists. From the beginning of June instead of the White house daily briefings on the camera began to conduct mostly closed briefings, most of which was chaired by the Deputy Spicer Sarah Sanders.
A wide resonance was received by a scandal with the statement of Spicer about the chemical attack in the Syrian province of Idlib, which US authorities blamed Damascus. At the briefing Spicer said that even Hitler did not stoop to such meanness as the use of chemical weapons. Journalists tried to clarify whether he is aware that Nazi Germany used gas chambers. On this, the press Secretary of the White house said that in the course, but Hitler, in his words, did not use chemical weapons in the cities.
In February, the administration trump left the national security Advisor, Michael Flynn. Cause of death was a burst in the States, the scandal because of Flynn’s contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak â€” Flynn acknowledged that gave the White house inaccurate information about contacts with the Russian diplomatic mission. The Kremlin then said that Flynn was talking to the Russian Ambassador, but the content of their conversation was misinterpreted.
