Imagine if someone could filter out all the negative in your life and just tell you what you want to hear.
Would be pretty great wouldn’t it?
Well, that’s exactly what Donald Trump gets everyday from his communications team apparently.
According to Vice News, the POTUS gets a folder twice a day filled with admiring tweets about him and photos of him looking powerful.
Now, if it was anyone else, it would probably be fine.
But you’d think that he would want to be aware of everything that is going on in his country – and the world – so he could make an informed decision.
His team reportedly start monitoring content on the President at around 6am every morning.
Staffers from the Republican National Committee keep an eye on various cable news shows, including CNN, MSNBC and Fox News as well as looking for positive online news stories.
They then hand him a folder, dubbed the ‘Propaganda Document’, of all the content at 9.30am and another at 4.30pm, filled with admiring tweets about him.
If there’s a particular day where there’s not enough positive news, the team reportedly looking for photos of him looking powerful, according to three current and former White House officials.
Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer and ex-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus reportedly fought to try and personally deliver the document to the president, but Mr Spicer has denied this.
According to Reuters, Trump also reportedly has a short attention span and only keeps reading documents if his name is mentioned in the copy.
