Despite the leftist narrative that President Donald Trump shuts out the mainstream media, New York Times photographer Doug Mills says he has more access to Trump than he ever did to former President Barack Obama.
According to The Hill, Jones met with C-SPAN for a sit-down interview that airs Feb. 11.
In a preview of the clip, Jones applauds President Trump’s availability to the media.
“We’re getting a lot more, I mean from a photographer’s standpoint, we get a lot more access to the president,” Jones said.
“I see him more on a daily basis than we did with Barack Obama,” he continued.
When asked about his job photographing the president, Jones said: “It’s exhausting, but it’s great.”
“I love what I’m doing, I’ve got the greatest job in the world,” he stated.
Clearly, a man who works for the media would not admit he loves his job if President Trump was as awful as liberals portray him.

Jones also called President Trump “one of the most iconic” presidents he has ever photographed.
“I look at just the past year in photographing Donald Trump and he’s probably one of the most iconic. It’s challenging but it’s fun,” Jones explained.
Obama liked to tout his own availability and the “transparency” of his administration.
If all that is true, why did President Obama grant the media limited access to his life in the White House? Was there something to hide?
Perhaps President Trump is fine with being transparent and available to the media because unlike Obama, he didn’t have anything to hide.
