Just one day after allowing cameras into a public discussion between himself and members of Congress on the issue of immigration, Donald Trump brought the media into his latest Cabinet meeting. As expected, the president made several note worthy comments.

Trump at the White House

It's no secret that Donald Trump likes attention which became more than obvious starting with the first day that he announced his campaign for president. Despite this, the former host of "The Apprentice" has engaged in a heated war of words with the media that has only increased during the first year he was in office.

To start off 2018, Trump has taken a different approach, attempting to silence critics who say he isn't accessible to the media, which was evident when he allowed the press to broadcast a live negotiation between republicans and democrats on immigration at the White House. As reported by CBS News on January 10, the president let the press in once again, this time during a meeting with members of his Cabinet.

At the White House on Wednesday, Donald Trump met with his Cabinet to discus a variety of issues, and did so with the media in front of him," saying, "Welcome back to the studio." Trump made sure to say a few words and caused headlines in the process.

"2017 was a year of tremendous achievement. Monumental achievement, actually," Trump said of his own administration, before adding, "I don't think any administration has ever done what we have done."

Trump on Media

Donald Trump then made sure to take a shot at the press, predicting that the media will eventually be on his side during his re-election because of the potential for high TV ratings.

"I think that the media will ultimately support Trump in the end because they're going to say, 'If Trump doesn't win in three years, we are all out of business,'" he said.

Trump on libel laws

Donald Trump also brought up the current libel laws in the country, threatening to made a move to take legal action against those who knowingly push inaccurate information.

"We are going to take a strong look at our country's libel laws so that when somebody says something that is false and defamatory about some that person will have meaningful recourse in our courts," he said.


Other topics the president focused on were the ongoing immigration debate and the passing of his tax bill. “It was reported as incredibly good, and my performance. Some of them called it a performance. I consider it work," Trump said.
