New WH press secretary criticized for demanding media refer to Trump as ‘President Trump’

New White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is coming under criticism from some in the media after telling an ABC reporter to not refer to the president by his name only.

“To you, he’s not Trump, he’s PRESIDENT Trump!” wrote McEnany, who replaced Stephanie Grisham as press secretary earlier this month.

The statement included a tweet about coronavirus testing from ABC White House reporter Katherine Faulders.

The tweet drew blowback on social media primarily from a number of people on the left.

McEnany, 32, is a former CNN contributor and Republican National Committee spokesperson.
