As much as President Donald Trump has ridiculed media as "the enemy of the people," rebuking "fake news," here is some real news from Newsweek showing he is a friend of the media: President Trump "is taking more questions than any president in history."

Newsweek's claim attributes the media blitz to the lack of daily press briefings by press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and cites ABC News' report President Trump "has taken nearly 300 questions from reporters in the past 11-day span alone."

"He has no fear of talking to the media," an anonymous senior administration official told ABC News. "He relishes it and he has instructed his staff he wants to do it more."

The interviews are about stumping for the White House and Republican control of Congress in the November midterms and the president wants to do even more, according to the report.

"You guys don't want to hear from us, you want to hear from him," the source told ABC.

In mid-August, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax's John Gizzi that Sanders will be leaving the administration after midterms, something that has been suspected amid the attacks she has received publicly and privately.

But President Trump is picking up the daily press briefings Sanders is now rarely conducting, but answering the questions himself.

Earlier this month, President Trump had even exhausted the usually unrelenting media huddles when he got no response when he asked if there were any more questions, according to Fox News' White House correspondent John Roberts.
