Wright pointed to the US trade agreement with China and the government’s budget surplus as examples of the administration’s achievements so far.

When Varney pressed Wright on whether he was correct that the media was going after Trump in a very extreme and personal way, Wright responded, “Of course you are.”

“There’s very little you can do about it, except ignore it or work through it. His level of accomplishment is what sets him aside right now and it’s very unfortunate."
