Trump himself has avoided the press, holding only one official press conference since taking office - the least ever for a first-year president.

The White House is re-focusing on the economy and the "America First" campaign promise from the 2016 election, which the President said was "the reason we're here".

White House press secretary Sean Spicer responded to these concerns during the press briefing on Monday.

In fact, there are two things that we know that would lead everyone to believe the primary goal of the meeting was to pass dirt on Clinton.

White House officials did not respond to questions about why the administration is proposing to eliminate $67 million of the bureau's $86 million budget, a almost 80 percent reduction.

"Think about all of the things that we buy every day".

Facing record low approval numbers, increasing heat over his campaign's ties to Russian Federation and quite possibly a case of the Mondays, US president Donald Trump took a chance this afternoon to imagine himself in someone else's shoes.

A recent Washington Post report found that Ivanka Trump's brand of apparel and accessories are made exclusively overseas in countries such as Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Ethiopia and Bangladesh.

At his briefing, Spicer received the most obvious of questions: What about the products that businesses owned by Trump and his daughter Ivanka manufacture overseas, such as shirts, ties, shoes and home goods?

"American workers, farmers and innovators are really the best in the world", President Trump said. "It is a very complex problem". "We're gonna stand up for our companies and maybe most importantly for our workers".

Spicer also offered the "decline of newspapers" as an example of a product lacking demand in the United States.

"Where's the fire? I'll put it out", Trump said aboard a firetruck made in Wisconsin.

For the entire week, President Trump and his administration will honor American workers and companies who make products here in the U.S. The campaign will focus on American values, and is set to continue through the rest of July before the President barnstorms the Midwest to rally support for tax reform.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the administration's actions were created to reverse a policy that was "doing its best to discourage these companies from investing here at home, through job-killing deals and a rapidly expanding scheme of unnecessary regulations".
