But they also say that the president is considering shaking up the existing on-camera briefing schedule, that has more or less been four times a week, by possibly doing less briefings in general. During an interview with Fox News' Jeanine Pirro Trump refused to say yes or no when he was asked point blank whether Spicer will continue in his post.

The New York Times lent credence to the Guilfoyle rumour on Friday, reporting that "Trump has raised the Fox News allies as a possible press secretary".

After Trump chose to fire Comey, he was told by aides that Democrats would likely react positively to the news, given the role many believe Comey played in Hillary Clinton's defeat past year.

Spicer then rides to Trump's golf course in New Jersey, where he finds the president.

She argued that an "A-team" in the White House communications department could have done a better job combating the flood of negative stories since last week's firing of FBI Director James Comey by the president. When the opposite occurred, Trump grew incensed - both at Democrats and his own communications staff for not quickly lining up more Republicans to defend him on television.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer continued to repeat the same answers on Monday when reporters repeatedly questioned him about specifics regarding the "tapes" President Donald Trump suggested he had of conversations with former FBI Director James Comey.

NBC Bay Area has reached out to the White House press team for comment.

"The president should immediately provide any such recordings to Congress or admit, once again, to have made a deliberately misleading - and in this case threatening - statement".

"I think it'd be a fascinating job", Guilfoyle said.

Trump last week told Fox News that maybe he just won't have press briefings anymore.

"Let's say I did it on January 20. that would have been the big story as opposed to the inauguration". Aides were also eager for Trump's first foreign trip, a high-stakes blitz through the Middle East and Europe.

Trump reportedly considered Guilfoyle for press secretary before taking office.

"That's, frankly, offensive", Mr Spicer said.
