ABC’s Dowd: Trump Is ‘Shutting Down Part of the First Amendment’ By Not Taking Questions That Are ‘Antagonistic’

During ABC’s coverage of President Trump’s press conference on Wednesday, ABC News Chief Political Analyst Matthew Dowd stated that “the president of the United States is shutting down part of the First Amendment by not taking questions that are going to be any way antagonistic in this.”

Dowd said that “[B]ascially, the president of the United States is shutting down part of the First Amendment by not taking questions that are going to be any way antagonistic in this. I think he thinks relying on his Twitter feed, and sending it out to the millions of people that subscribe to it, and then dealing with very cozy press in this is going to be the way to get through this.”
