Visceral combativeness between the Press and the President has become commonplace in our world today to the point that it seems impossible for a Chief Executive to achieve anything significant (except for issues like relief for the Hurricane Harvey victims).

But what we want to highlight here is the ingenuity and the incredibly intelligent way he went about this. Take a look at how he accomplished this right after being inaugurated as President.
