10. His media handlers have decided these selective, shouted encounters count as official communiques

So they now show up on the White House web site, rather than the moribund press briefings, under the title (trying to sound legitimate) "Briefings and Statements":

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-marine-one-departure-40/

along with such obvious lying titles as "FACT SHEETS: President Donald J. Trump is Defending Our Sovereignty and Constitutional Rights From the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty" ("Fact?" Trump wouldn't know a fact if he swallowed it in a KFC binge. An example of their "facts": "The United States export controls have long been considered the gold standard for engaging in responsible arms trading and we will continue to use them under our own laws". Fuck me, he's arming Mohammed Bone Saw, and he thinks that's "responsible". The only thing it's responsible for is making him money.)
