Trump is so detached from reality that he thought the media would come running if he announced that he would talk to them at his private club. Well, talk to them is not exactly correct. Trump talks at the media.

If he ever actually campaigns, Donald Trump will get some coverage, but this isn’t 2016 anymore. Trump doesn’t move ratings for anyone, including Fox News, and without Fox, it is difficult to see the former president getting any media coverage.
