MEDIA CONSULTING

Trump ‘Huddles’ With Drudge at White House

According to Politico, President Trump has met with famed right-wing news aggregator Matt Drudge to discuss his administration. “Trump huddled in the Oval Office with Matt Drudge, the reclusive operator of the influential Drudge Report, to talk about his administration and the site,” the D.C.-based outlet reported Thursday. “Drudge and [Jared] Kushner have also begun to communicate frequently, said people familiar with the conversations. Drudge, whose visits to the White House haven’t previously been reported, didn’t respond to a request for comment.” Politico points to the visits as an example of Trump’s fixation with ingratiating himself with favorable media outlets amid turmoil in his first 100 days as president.
